    Jun 14, 2013

    Loose lips sink ships.

On post, Soldiers and Department of Defense civilians are trained to keep quiet on information considered to be matters of Operations Security, better known as OPSEC. This guidance also applies to Army Family members, contractors, retirees and others throughout the community.

  • Seat belts: a disciplined choice

    Jun 9, 2013

    June isn't just National Safety Month - it's also the beginning of summer and the season of road trips and vacations.

The numbers are going down from the spike we saw in 2010, when 29 unbelted Soldiers died, to 13 at the close of fiscal 2012. Accident reviews show that had seat belts been worn, nearly half these Soldiers would still be in the ranks because the survivable space inside their vehicles wasn't compromised.
