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.
