Mountain sees new security

CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN AIR FORCE STATION, Colo. — Col. Joe Turk, 721st Mission Support Group commander, welcomes guests and members of the 721st Security Forces Squadron to the Echo-5 formal release ceremony Feb. 19. The event honored the service of Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station’s security forces members who, since Spring 2009, were posted as a close boundary sentry to protect the restricted area perimeter. These members guarded the entrance to CMAFS during around-the-clock operations withstanding temperatures varying from -15 to 101 degrees Fahrenheit. A new certified intrusion detection system now monitors all activity, freeing vital resources to be utilized in other areas. (U.S. Air Force photo/Craig Denton)
