Live anthrax mistakenly sent to 9 states, U.S. military base

Dugway Proving Ground military base, seen here in 2010, was the source of several anthrax shipments that are suspected of containing live samples of the disease. 

The Pentagon has advised four civilian workers to get preventive care; more than 20 military personnel are also being monitored for exposure to the potentially deadly disease.
