Correct. FP (Force Protection) Condition Delta is the highest alert.
Though I've heard it's only the US East coast posts that are at Delta;
I've had reports that most overseas bases are at Charlie. FPCon is a
localized alert state and will vary by location.
DEFCON 2 has been reached, I believe.
DEFCON 1 does not necessarily equate automatically to war, however. It
is merely the maximum level of force readiness.
