Entering Fort Knox has become more complicated as the post aligns its security procedures with the country’s other military installations.
“We’re having a little more accountability,” Fort Knox spokesman Ken Beyer said.
There was no specific event behind the decision, he said.
Fort Knox still encourages members of the surrounding community to use its facilities, such as the Bowling Center and Lindsey Golf Course, Beyer said.
“We’re not trying to keep anybody from coming on the post,” he said.
