If you are a military spouse and your husband is leaving for deployment, you cant post on public forums things like this...

MY HUSBAND LEAVES FRIDAY FOR DEPLOYMENT

MY HUSBAND COMES HOME TUESDAY FROM DEPLOYMENT

MY HUSBANDS UNIT HAS 2 WEEKS & 3 DAYS LEFT OF DEPLOYMENT...

ETC> ETC>

It is a violation of OPSEC, it endangers the whole unit's safety, and it may (and definatetly has) caused an entire unit to be delayed in returning home if leadership sees said posts!!! Please do not post these things! I've seen 3 posts like this today!!!

Yup. But don't tell that to women posting it. I did once and got bashed like crazy.

I usually call the person and tell them personally if I know them, but lately I havent known them all.

 I think its great they are excited, but they need to be more vague about it.  When my husband deployed we were only allowed to post things like:

:(  I think my hubs is leaving in October for delpoyment

:)  He might get to come home in April to visit

:))  He thinks he is coming home for good in September

I never counted down days.  I know it is exciting to do it, but who the hell really knows when they are leaving or coming back.  When he came home, the Army couldnt even tell me when!  LOL

Because we will be making it easy for someone who wishes to do harm to us.... by telling them a whole unit will be here at said time...

 because if any kind of terrorist group, anti military group- anyone against them knows when exactly they are coming home, when they will be traveling- it is easy to plan an attack on them.
