ChristinaE --- 8 years ago -

Tammy --- 8 years ago -

I am so sorry Megan. I didn't mean to cut our conversation short. I hope you hear from yours soon. 

Meghan --- 8 years ago -

Tammy-- Its ok hun. u were talking to ur man. very understandable. 

ChristinaE --- 8 years ago -

Mine waited about a week to call, but he's not big on waiting in any kind of line for anything 

Meghan --- 8 years ago -

ChristinaE --- 8 years ago -

Meghan --- 8 years ago -

kayla --- 8 years ago -

My hubby called at 1230 today. Said he was in Iraq and gonna be somewhere for a couple days then would be going to the camp he will be staying at. 

Meghan --- 8 years ago -

He finally called. I was right about the lines being long and him sleeping tell they were shorter. So glad to hear his laugh. 

ChristinaE --- 8 years ago -

yay! I know that's a relief. 

Sassypants --- 8 years ago -

Kayla, my man's in the same situation. Not where he should be yet. But I have gotten facebook messages. No phone call probably until he gets there in a few days. Bummer. :(

Good that you heard from your men. I know thats a relief but Once again OSPEC needs to be brought up. Saying where they are and when they got in cant be put up. It can make a huge mess and put them in danger especially when they are coming home. We have had flights delayed by weeks because wives have wrote when they are coming home, where they were, things like that. Please change your comments and Mods really should be on this.

Here are the OPSEC Rules for everyone:

OPSEC Rules (Operational Security):

1. Do not post exact deployment dates or redeployment dates
2. Do not reveal camp locations, including nearby cities. After the deployment is officially announced by Military officials, you may discuss locations that have been released, normally on the Country level.
3. Do not discuss convoy routes (“we travelled through Takrit on our way to X”)
4. Detailed information on the mission, capabilities or morale of a unit
5. Specific names or actual nicknames
6. Personnel transactions that occur in large numbers (Example: pay information, powers of attorney, wills, etc)
7. Details concerning security procedures, response times, tactics
8. Don’t discuss equipment or lack thereof, to include training equipment
9. Don’t speculate about future operations
10. If posting pictures, don’t post anything that could be misconstrued or used for propaganda purposes. A good rule of thumb is to look at your picture without your caption or explanation and consider if it could be re-captioned to reflect poorly on coalition forces. For example, your image might show your Soldier rescuing a child from a blast site, but could be re-captioned to insinuate that the child being captured or harmed. (it’s happened!)
11. Avoid the use of count-up or count-down tickers for the same reason as rule #1
12. be very careful if posting pictures of your loved one. Avoid images that show significant landmarks near their base of operations, and black out last names and unit affiliations
13. Do not, ever, post information about casualties (coalition or enemy) before the official release of the information.
14. Do not pass on rumors (“I heard they’re coming home early”, etc)

PERSEC Rules (Personal Security):

PERSEC is also known as personal security. Like OPSEC, this involves guarding the information that you know. Do not give out your service member's name along with rank. Be vague about your personal information on the internet. This is plain common sense in just every day life -regardless of if your husband is in the military. The old saying loose lips sink ships still holds true today. Keep your service member, your family and his unit safe by keeping the information you know to yourself. You never know who is lurking and gathering information on message boards, Myspace pages and profiles,etc. Better safe than sorry!

Please be sure to look at your Bio's and make sure that there is not any identifying personal information. Keep your Myspace and Facebook profiles private, don't add anyone you don't know, just use your head :)
