This is the MOST important policy! Please be sure that whatever you are doing, you are taking any of this into consideration, for your safety and the safety of our soldiers.
OPSEC/Operations Security is a process that identifies critical information to determine if friendly actions can be observed by adversary intelligence systems, determines if information obtained by adversaries could be interpreted to be useful to them, and then executes selected measures that eliminate or reduce adversary exploitation of friendly critical information. (Wikipedia)
PERSEC/Personal Security: Again, this is for your safety and the safety of your soldier. Do NOT:
- Post deployment dates and locations online or anywhere for that matter.
- Talk about missions with ANYBODY.
Example of TMI: "AHHH! In three more days I get to pick up the love of my life Sgt. Joe Schmoe from blah blah AFB! He just called and is in Kuwait right now!!"
Better example: "AHHHH! Only a couple more days until I get to see the love of my life again!"
