Many of you may have seen news stories this past weekend of a list containing the names, addresses, and photos of 100 current U.S. service members.
The list was compiled with the respective addresses and photos based off of information obtained through social media sites such as Facebook and LinkedIn.
In light of these events it is highly recommended you review your current online footprint, particularly in regard to social media sites. Furthermore, have a conversation with your families about Operational Security (OPSEC) and how we all need to be careful about what we post online. There are real threats out there, and it is important that we do what we can do to mitigate our exposure.
Here some easy steps you can take to help ensure your security online:
As always, force protection is a primary concern. It is important that we all remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to base security forces, Air Force OSI, or the local police.
If you are partying tonight, make plans to use a designated driver. According the the Pennington County Sheriff’s Office, March 17th has become a deadly day in the US with a dramatic spike in drunk driving fatalities. Please be responsible and make this day a safe one for everyone.
If you think you never have enough time on the weekends, you definitely are not going to like this weekend. It’s Daylight Saving Time again, and this isn’t the fun one as we turn the clocks forward an hour.
The official change of time begins at 2 A.M. on the morning of Sunday, March 8th, 2015. Be sure to set your clocks ahead by 1 hour before you go to bed on Saturday Night.
Daylight saving time is currently adopted in over 70 countries and imposes a twice yearly 1 hour change in local clock time. Many assume that the time change only affects your sleep pattern that night, but a study out of England suggests that the seemingly small one-hour shift in the sleep cycle can affect sleep for up to a week. In my opinion, I know I didn’t need a study to tell me that.
Either way you see it, don’t forget to turn your clocks forward one hour so that you aren’t late for anything on Sunday!
Kids in grades Kindergarten through 6th grade will be able to process through the deployment center and then be reunited with their families.
There will be activities at the Pride Hangar for everyone not deploying.
