Operations Security Guidance for Family Members
As a family member of the military community, you are a vital player in our success and we could not do our job without your support. You may not know it, but you also play a crucial role in ensuring your loved ones' safety just by what you know of the military's day-to-day operations. You can protect your loved ones by protecting the information that you know. This is known in the military as, "Operations Security", or OPSEC.
What is OPSEC?
OPSEC is keeping potential adversaries from discovering Information that is Critical to your families safety and also your spouse's Mission Accomplishment. Mission Accomplishment depends on secrecy and surprise, so the military can accomplish the mission more quickly and with less risk. Enemies of freedom want this information, and they are not just after the military member to get it.
