OPSEC Tips 2d Brigade, 4th Infantry Division Rear Detachment According to Terrance Wimberly, Installation Operations Security Program Manager, here are Internet/blog OPSEC tips that can be used to help protect you and your Family during a redeployment:  Do not post information about upcoming redeployments or temporary duty assignments.  Do not give details about what kind of work your Department of Defense Family member performs for the military or government (this is also valid for DoD civilians who might redeploy).  If your Family member is deployed in support of a military operation, don’t give details about the location or the activities your Family member is involved in. Predators could be viewing your blogs or personal Web page, they’re not foolproof.  Refrain from posting specific identifying information such as your phone number and address.  Do not provide information that would allow someone to find you or your Family. Writing about the school your child attends, along with pictures of your children, are potential clues to help predators locate you or your Family.

 Do not post your email address on your page. Small town Internet service providers and personal information contained in your email address should be protected.  Just because your spouse told you the information over the phone does not necessarily mean that information is okay to post or disseminate to others.

TOWN HALL Q & A 2d Brigade, 4th Infantry Division Rear Detachment Q: When can we start hanging banners? A: Now! Banners can be given to the Special Events Center any time starting now and up until 24 hours prior to the ceremony date. Just keep in mind that if you hang banners along the fence by Gate 1, then it can only be 24 hours prior to the Welcome Home, and it must be taken down 24 hours after the ceremony. Q: When will our Soldier know their leave dates? A: It is pretty safe to plan on leave once the 4 day pass and 10 Reintegration are complete. Q: I hear that block leave starts on 9 June, is that true? A: There are several Battalions that are conducting a consolidated leave plan; others are by company. Q: Our guys are in SFAT 5 with 1-10 CAV. Who will notify us if they are going back to 1-67 AR? A: Your Soldier’s parent unit will be the ones to notify you. Q: My Soldier said we only got a 2 day pass. Will it be 2 or 4 days? A: It is a 4 day pass across the board. Q: Do the Soldiers get an automatic 4-day for Memorial Day- even if reintegration falls during it? A: There are 2 main body flights that are affected by Memorial Day weekend and ACS Training (completed by 1300) and another conducting RSRP. This is all based on estimated arrival flights.

TOWN HALL Q & A 2d Brigade, 4th Infantry Division Rear Detachment

Q: Do the flights stop in Maine? A: The flight path may change from flight to flight but generally will pass through Maine. Q: Where is the SEC? A: The Special Events Center is building 1829, on Specker Street on Fort Carson Q: Will the flight dates be posted on the vFRG if it will not be on Facebook? A: Not all Battalions use vFRG. It will be up to each Battalion if they use vFRG, eArmy messaging, the phone tree, or a hotline. The Brigade will post ceremony times and locations for each Main Body Flight on Facebook. We also will utilize the hotline, 719-503-2633. Q: Will STRAT Air military flights be on the vFRG website? A: Yes, those Battalions that use vFRG will ensure all flights to include STRAT Air are on vFRG. Q: If my Soldier is in C Co 2STB but deployed with 2-8, 1-67, or 1-10, who is notifying us? A: The original Battalion will be making the calls, but don’t be surprised if you get a call from both units.



TOWN HALL Q & A 2d Brigade, 4th Infantry Division Rear Detachment

Q: Is there Child Care for the ACS Reintegration Training? A: In order to assist the Families of the Warhorse Brigade get their children registered for childcare for RIT, CYSS has generously offered us our own time block at Parent Central. Our day for 2BCT will be 3 May, 0900-1200. We will have 2 dedicated clerks standing by to assist our Families. Parents will need to bring in their children's shot records and have 2 emergency contacts available for the forms. If you know that you have Families interested in doing this, please send their names to me as soon as you get them. Each child will take approximately 20-30 minutes each. We are working on an evening to do this again so we can capture those that work; that date will be provided soon. DAY1 McMahon Theater: Child care will be provided at IVY Child Care (Address) DAY2 1-4 HQs: Child care will be provided on site at the HQs (Address)
