  • OPSEC: Helpful hints to prevent information spillage

    Jun 17, 2013

    Loose lips sink ships. A phrase first used on U.S. propaganda posters during World War II, it still rings true for today's military in the age of social media, a 24/7 news cycle and quick information exchange. All in all, it's now more than ever a "loose keys break knees" society. 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. Operations Security, as defined by Garrison OPSEC Officer Jay Fangman, is "a systematic and analytic process to deny potential adversaries information about capabilities and intentions by identifying, controlling and protecting evidence of the planning and execution of sensitive activities and operations."

  • 238 and Counting: Post celebrates Army birthday with special Family activities

    Jun 14, 2013

    When the American Revolution broke out, the colonies did not have an army in the contemporary sense. Rather, the revolutionaries fielded an inexpert force of colonial groups, formed together from various New England militia companies. They had no formal chain of command, and although Artemas Ward of Massachusetts exercised authority by casual agreement, officers from other colonies were not obligated to follow orders. The American volunteers were led, equipped, armed, funded for, and supported by the colonies from which they came from, according to the U.S. Army Center of Military History. "Two hundred and thirty eight years ago, on June 14, 1775, a small band of patriots joined together to set in motion events that would transform the Nation, and at the time, their ideals were considered to be nothing less than revolutionary," said Brig. Gen. Mark R. Stammer, acting commander of the 101st Airborne Division and Fort Campbell. "That 'band of brothers' set us on the path to a democratic government and a sense of freedom that is still a beacon around the world."
