Trooper to Trooper featuring Command Master Chief Reynaldo Tiong Remain open-minded and see the glass as half full THE WIRE | PAGE 3 | TROOPER T O TROOPER PSEC ALERT PROTECT YOUR INFO!What to do with old uniformsDont throw them away! First thing, sanitize them! Remove your name tape and rank, warfare insignia and any other patches. Next, look inside did you write your name or last 4 on the tag so you could claim it from the laundry? If you did, remove the tag or blacken out your info. Then take a good look at the uniform. Is it still usable? If it is, take it to the thrift shop or ask your shipmates or battle buddies if they could use it. Otherwise make it un-wearable by cutting it in half down the back and cutting the sleeves off. For pants, rip them in two. Dont throw uniforms away whole theyre valuable and a whole uniform could be used by an adversary to try to access places they shouldnt be. So take care of your uniforms and protect your personal information. USE OPSEC! Command Master Chief, Joint Task Force Guantanamo Pay attention to the details, big or small Lead by example and try to establish good habits Try to remain calm and be kind; its nice to be nice
