Fort Bragg changes requirements to gain access to post

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (WNCN) – Fort Bragg announced it will require valid proof of identification for visitors in response to the July 16 shooting deaths of service members in Chattanooga.

U.S. Northern Command conducted a review of U.S. military’s stateside Force Protection. As a result of that review, Fort Bragg modified how it plans to secure post.

“This is a prudent step to reinforce existing security measures that we have in place to safeguard our service members and their Families and our civilian workforce,” said Benjamin Abel, Fort Bragg spokesman.

Everyone over the age of 18 will be required to show proof of identification to gain access to the post.

Fort Bragg encourages all soldiers and their families to make sure information in the Army Disaster Personnel Accountability and Assessment System is current.
