U.S. Northern Command sends another “warning message” to Troops


The command in charge of protecting the U.S. homeland has sent a message to troops warning them to hide family information from terror organizations  who are trying to frighten them.

The memo warns against using “military slang” in public and decorating a home in military items—social conduct that might make them a target by the Islamic State terror group, also known as ISIL and ISIS.

U.S. Northern Command sent the “official use only” message as a reaction to the Islamic State posting the names of 100 American service members as targets for attacks.

“These organizations are attempting to use our own personal information against us to create fear and anxiety among our ranks and within our families,” states the message, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times.

“We all have a responsibility to protect ourselves and our fellow service members and their families. We must reduce our vulnerabilities through active and vigilant monitoring of the information provided via the Internet and social media sources.”
