Follow-up from yesterday’s conversation about the new Army regulation and its impact on military bloggers.
The Office of the Chief of Army Public affairs (OCPA) has fully jumped into the discussion about AR 530-1 and its impact by putting out this one-pager on the issue.
I think the key point is here:
· In no way will every blog post/update a Soldier makes on his or her blog need to be monitored or first approved by an immediate supervisor and Operations Security (OPSEC) officer. After receiving guidance and awareness training from the appointed OPSEC officer, that Soldier blogger is entrusted to practice OPSEC when posting in a public forum.
We will see how this all continues to unfold.
Update: The best summation of the past two days can be found here (after discovering this blog during the latest dust-up, An Army Lawyer is the newest addition to my blogroll).
