Army National Guard members stand watch near the Holland Tunnel on New York City's Canal Street on May 28, 2003. Security has been more visible since the federal government heightened the terrorism alert from red to orange.

The U.S. military expects to have 20,000 uniformed troops inside the United States by 2011 trained to help state and local officials respond to a nuclear terrorist attack or other domestic catastrophe, according to Pentagon officials.
