Florida Guard Team:
The Department of Homeland Security has taken precautionary steps to safeguard U.S. government personnel and facilities and the visitors to those facilities. It is not based on any specific, credible information at this time that would indicate an active plot against our military, government officials and law enforcement in the United States. We will continue to adjust our security posture to appropriately protect our force. Recent events in Great Britain, Canada, and the U.S. demonstrate the need for increased awareness.
We echo the Department of Homeland Security in encouraging all Florida National Guard employees and their families to remain vigilant in this current “see something, say something” security environment.
The war against terrorism will be a long one. We must be proactive rather than reactive to secure our force, our families and our citizens. “Complacency Kills” is not just a slogan.
Emmett R. Titshaw Jr.
The Adjutant General of Florida
