ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (Tribune News Service) — The Main Gate at Holloman Air Force Base was closed Aug. 19 due to ongoing Holloman AFB Security Forces and local law enforcement presence following a vehicle crash.

"The capabilities of our personnel and resources ensured there is no further threat to the safety and security of Team Holloman," the post states.

The Welcome Center operated normally early morning Aug. 19.
