Knowing is half the battle

Operations security is the safeguarding of information that, if disseminated to the general public, could cause a threat or bring harm to military members or property. This is something that not only military members should think about, but also family members wherever they are, to include at home.

Bad OPSEC practices can lead to mission degradation and put lives at risk, while smart OPSEC habits can help ensure safe mission continuation.

In order to be able to contribute to OPSEC success all members should be familiar with the wing and unit critical information list. These lists are designed to capture information deemed most important to protect. At a minimum family members here at Incirlik should know the basics and receive family consolidated CIL cards.

Shawn Hughes, 8th Maintenance Group wing weapons manager.

Holocaust National Days of Remembrance Event

The Soldiers of Company L, 157th Regiment, 45th Division arrived at the Nazi concentration camp gates and saw they were locked. They scaled the walls and took out the guards. When they had liberated the camp, what the Soldiers saw brought many of them to tears of sorrow and anger. How could a human do this do another human?

April 29, 1945, at 7:30 a.m., marks the 69th anniversary of the liberation of Dachau Concentration Camp, Germany. Less than three months after Dachau was liberated, a frontline medic from the 71st Infantry Division arrived to assess the cleanup effort. After 92 days of combat, his unit had traveled more than 1,060 miles and had taken 108,000 Prisoners Of War. What this medic saw would change his life forever. His name was Alvin Fleetwood. Fleetwood, a World War II veteran, was recently the keynote speaker for Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson's Holocaust National Days of Remembrance event at the Frontier Theater on JBER-Richardson, April 10.
