DAYTON, OHIO: Personnel at a Southwest Ohio Air Force base have been told to be mindful of things that could identify them as part of the military following attacks on soldiers in Canada.
The Dayton Daily News reports airmen at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base were given directives to monitor what they post on social media and to be mindful of any vehicle stickers or clothing items identifying them as a member of the military or a government employee.
A base spokesman says there are no credible threats in the area, but officials want to ensure military personnel protect themselves.
The directive comes about a week after a gunman killed a soldier at Canada’s war memorial in Ottawa. Two days earlier, a man ran over two soldiers in a Quebec parking lot.
