Do not (I REPEAT) Do not tell anyone what I'm about to tell you or I'll have to find you and tickle you to death.
Just kidding. HELLO....have you noticed the whole world can read this blog?
Today, our DSPYEOSS (double secret poke your eyes out spy stuff) is going to focus on OpSec...which is a big fancy word...ok...its actually a short acronym word. BUT, the important part is that its commonly used by the Army (and other armed forces groups) to mean Operational Security. Its time that I address this here in my blog. Remember, I'm not locked down here...as in...ANYONE can read what I have to say and so as an Army wife I am bound to follow some basic OpSec rules.
Now whats the likelihood that there is a terrorist following the mundane life of little ol' me? Probably very small, but I'm not going to take the chance that something I say could harm a soldier in any way.
So...with that being said...OpSec rules for me are as follows...
I will never post any information about the following:
**Identification of units being deployed
**Troop movements (this includes locations of units moving from one destination to another)
**Unit departure/arrival dates/return dates
**Deployment destinations (including any stops during air travel)
**Military activities including pre-deployment meetings, training and formations
**Length of or extensions of deployments
**Information on proposed port calls
**Information about future deployments
Phew...so, that pretty much rules out me talking about the next 10 years of our lives until we're no longer in the Army.
Just teasing...I wouldn't subject you all to the horror of my posts being all about ME...unless you all need some sleeping pills and then I can oblige with a boring story or two of life on Post...
All joking aside...I will provide some information about whats going on...photos to share, stories too, but please know that if you want details you're going to have to call me or email me or smoke signal me.
That being said.
We love our soldier.
And we wish you were here with us all the time.
And we'll leave a light on until you come home.
