OPSEC efforts earn post top Army honors


Creative efforts to spread the message about security operations have earned Fort Hood top honors from the Department of the Army. Fort Hood swept three of the four categories of the 2015 Army OPSEC Achievement Award competition to recognize DA personnel and organizations for creative and innovative methods to solve OPSEC problems; winning first place in both the organizational and multimedia categories.

"It is a great honor for the program to receive this level of recognition validating the effort and time that the garrison puts into it," Ricky Rounds, the chief of operations for U.S. Army Garrison-Fort Hood said. "Over the past three years, Fort Hood has consistently placed in the top three for most of the categories."

Fort Hood’s Visual Information staff worked in close collaboration with the installation's Security Division to create two original OPSEC posters that took first and second place in the multimedia print category and an OPSEC briefing video for post newcomers.
