Incidents like the 2009 Fort Hood shooting and the 2013 killings at the Washington Navy Yard serve as reminders that the military is not immune to the threat of violence and crime.

By Dave Tynan

One might think that a military base is among the most secure places in the country. Unfortunately, though, the sprawling nature of military bases makes them difficult to secure effectively, which leaves these sites vulnerable to a wide range of threats.
