Apparently OPSEC is a joke...




I tend to join quite a few military groups while Huzzy is gone. I avoid the news but I still like to have my feelers out there so I have an idea of what's going on. Whether Huzzy tells me anything or not, I'll find out what's up from one of these ladies who obviously have no regard for OPSEC whatsoever.

Today I was reading (trolling) one of the groups and found a pretty innocent post. It was basically just a post about what the group members were excited for, happy about, etc. People were posting about plans for the weekend, house remodeling and other inconsequential things. That's cool.

Then I get to the comment from someone who is obviously way too happy to bother checking to make sure she wasn't revealing too much. To most people, the post seemed simple enough. She posted about how long (exact number of days) her husband has been gone. She was excited because she knew when he was going to be in port (which I won't repeat here) and chose to share that with the group.

There are over 3,000 people in this group. From what little that woman posted (and a quick trip to Google), I now know what ship her husband is on. Even if I wasn't sure exactly which one (many times more than one ship leaves on the same day) the big ass picture of his ship on her Facebook profile kind of gives it away.  Since she was kind enough to tell me when the ship will be pulling in, I also know generally where in the world he is. I can safely assume he will be pulling in to one of two possible ports.

Good thing I'm not one of the bad guys, huh?

But who's to say all of the other 3,000 people in that group are as trustworthy as myself?

I know that most people will read what she wrote and not think anything of it. It doesn't say when he comes home, right? So how bad could it be?

Right. Because we never get attacked in foreign ports. Never.
