Entry: DEFCON (n.)

In context: "Both AMNAT and SOVWAR go DEFCON 2 to DEFCON 4."

Definition: Okay, so there is a lot of military jargon there, but I've heard of DEFCON enough I wanted to take a look.

Wikipedia has: A defense readiness condition (DEFCON) is an alert posture used by the United States Armed Forces.[1] The DEFCON system was developed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and unified and specified combatant commands.[2] It prescribes five graduated levels of readiness (or states of alert) for the U.S. military, and increase in severity from DEFCON 5 (least severe) to DEFCON 1 (most severe) to match varying military situations
