  • Eyes on OPSEC: OPSEC on vacation

    Summer--so many pleasant memories are invoked simply by saying the word: sitting in the bleachers at a baseball game with a cold hotdog and a warm soda; playing "guess the meat" every time dad tries to work the barbeque grill and ends up burning everything to a crisp; mowing the lawn in 100 degree heat while an older sibling sits in the shade on

At this time, the wounded and dead soldiers were removed from the battle grounds and respect was paid to those who gave

    Cooking outdoors - in parks, campgrounds and backyards - is an enjoyable summer pastime. Yet while barbeques provide a fun and casual dining experience, they also provide the ideal condition for a costly mishap. Barbeque grills appear to be harmless, but misuse and carelessness result in thousands of injuries each year. While we're anxious to fire
