Does the government go thru your pics or anything? I would think that they would be worried about what gets out.
Well they dont really go through them. They monitor anything that crosses their network though. So if someone was sending out info or photos to their loved ones back home you can bet that someone is looking at them first.
We have OpSec (Operational Security) rules as do all branches that we are expected to follow. If we violate them there are harsh penalties.
A perfect example was when Geraldo Rivera reported the location and movements of the troops in Iraq. That was a major OpSec violation.

Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good; that honor, courage, and virtue mean everything; that power and money mean nothing; that good always triumphs over evil, that true love never dies. Doesn't matter if it's true or not. You see, a man should believe in those things, because those are the things worth believing in.
Geraldo was supposed to tell where he was. That was the deal. Where he was a couple of months ago was the wild west. It has changed now.

Wow, there are palm trees and grass in Iraq! There were none in the area down south where I was stationed for a year. We had 20 miles of sand in every direction. Look for the Temple of Ur on a map and that is where I was. The temple was actually inside our basecamp.
Gotta love 130+ degree days. Makes Arizona seem cold.
Thank you for sharing the pictures, I am happy you made it back safely. It amazes me to see the photo's of all the people and their ability to keep a smile on thiers faces given all the destruction to their country. That must give you a great feeling and purpose for being there. Now if we could just get everyone home safe and in one piece.
