The Family Readiness Group (FRG) page exists to keep communication flowing between members of the FR USACAPOC(A) page OPSEC Rules
Do not post exact deployment dates or redeployment dates – stick to generalities like “Spring”
2. Do not reveal camp or FOB locations for future movements or deployments, including nearby cities. After the deployment is officially announced by Military officials, you may discuss locations that have been released, normally on the major city, province or Country level (I,e Baghdad or Kabul are larg
e enough places to name).
3. Do not discuss convoy routes (“we travelled through Takrit on our way to X”)
4. Detailed information on the mission, capabilities or morale of a unit
5. Specific names or actual nicknames
6. Personnel transactions that occur in large numbers (Example: pay information, powers of attorney, wills, etc)
7. Details concerning security procedures, response times, tactics
8. Don’t discuss equipment or lack thereof, to include training equipment
9. Don’t speculate about future operations
10. If posting pictures, don’t post anything that could be misconstrued or used for propaganda purposes. A good rule of thumb is to look at your picture without your caption or explanation and consider if it could be re-captioned to reflect poorly on coalition forces. For example, your image might show your Soldier rescuing a child from a blast site, but could be re-captioned to insinuate that the child being captured or harmed. (it’s happened!)
11. Avoid the use of count-up or count-down tickers for the same reason as rule #1
12. Be very careful if posting pictures of your loved one. Avoid images that show significant landmarks near their base of operations, and black out last names and unit affiliations
13. Do not, ever, post information about casualties (coalition or enemy) before the official release of the information.
14. Do not pass on rumors (“I heard they’re coming home early”, etc)
If you have any questions, contact your (or your sponsor’s) unit OPSEC manager.”

The Grinch had a devious plan to thwart the 410th’s holiday plans this year, and he would have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for those meddling FRG Coordinators! SSG Finke and Mrs. Lugo have been secretly coordinating with Santa Claus this year, and enlisted the help of volunteers throughout the battalion to ensure the success of “Operation Door Dash.”
