The Massachusetts National Guard is expected to arrive at Logan International Airport tonight to bolster security after British intelligence uncovered a potential terrorist plot.
Governor Mitt Romney was expected to address about 50 troops tonight before they begin their duties.
Summoned from homes and jobs across the state, Massachusetts National Guard soldiers and airmen began reporting to Logan for training this afternoon to help protect New England's critical travel hub.
From armed patrols to gate security, the Guard will be assigned to the airport indefinitely to supplement security by the State Police, Massport, and Transportation Security Administration, said Master Sergeant Pallas deBettencourt, a National Guard spokeswoman. http://www.boston.com/news/globe/cit...nal_guard.html
