Pentagon Urges Military Personnel To Increase Patrol In The Neighborhoods Where The Targets Live
According to CBS News, national security correspondent David Martin reported that back in July, the Pentagon had urged local authorities and military police to increase their patrol in the neighborhoods of military personnel specifically targeted by ISIS.
The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) published a list containing names, photos, and home addresses of U.S. Armed Forces personnel, causing alarm in cities potentially at high-risk.
In it, ISIS urges followers and sympathizers in the U.S. to kill the servicemen. The personnel were handpicked based on their service within the U.S Air Force and U.S Navy – the branches of the military that conducted the massive air strikes against ISIS.
Seven Texas cities were included on the list: Abilene, New Braunfels, San Antonio, Wyle, Fort Hood, Bedford, and Killeen.
Cities expected to increase in security due to the threat are:
Texas: Abilene, New Braunfels, San Antonio, Wyle, Fort Hood, Bedford, Killeen
Indiana: Michigan City, Bolivar
Michigan: Dearborn Heights, Lake Orion
Connecticut: Barkhamsted, Manchester
Maryland: Upper Marlboro, Warrensburg, Lexington Park
Louisiana: Shreveport, Bossier City
South Carolina: Daniel Island, Charleston
North Carolina: Fayetteville, New Bern
Virginia: Burke, Virginia Beach, Suffolk, Springfield, Norfolk, Chesapeake
Colorado: Colorado Springs
California: Hanford, Solvang, San Ardo, Monterrey, Newberry Park, Carlsbad

South Dakota: Rapid City
Florida: Merritt Island, Palm Coast, Saint John, Middleburg, Saint Augustine

We pray that all of our brothers and sisters are kept safe by the hand of God. Not only in these cities, but across the world, God please keep us safe!
