THE FOLLOWING CHANGES TO STATUS ARE IN EFFECT.
1) THE NCA HAS SET DEFCON 2 (TWO)
2) NATO HAS OFFICIALLY RATIFIED THAT THE CONDITIONS OF ARTICLE 5 (FIVE) ARE MET. A NATO NATION HAS BEEN ATTACKED, SO ALL NATO NATIONS WILL EXERCISE UNIFIED DEFENSE AND RESPONSE
3) THREATCON DELTA IS SET FOR ALL UNITS IN GERMANY.
4) THE AIR DEFENSE ALERT STATUS FOR ALL UNITS IN GERMANY IS SET TO YELLOW.

FURTHER INFORMATION WILL BE DISSEMINATED AND ORDERS WILL FOLLOW AS THEY BECOME AVAILABLE.
