Gov. McCrory calls for increased security at NC National Guard
Posted July 19, 2015
Raleigh, N.C. — Governor Pat McCrory has ordered the Department of Public Safety and the North Carolina National Guard to step up security measures at recruiting centers, armories and readiness centers statewide.
“We will be vigilant in protecting those who protect us,” Governor McCrory said. “These men and women are putting their lives on the line to serve our country and it’s our responsibility to ensure everything that is within our power to do for their safety is done.”
The heightened security measures are in response to shootings at two military recruiting centers in Chattanooga, Tenn., that left four United States Marines and one Navy sailor dead.
