OPSEC Reminders: Eagle Eyes

Keeping Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point safe isn’t left to solely law enforcement personnel. The responsibility extends to everyone in the community, even visitors, to safeguard the air station and those living and working on it.

One way to do so is by having engaged Eagle Eyes — Watch. Report. Protect.

  • Suspicious surveillance. Is someone taking notes or using binoculars near a military facility?
  • Suspicious questioning. Is someone attempting to gain information regarding deployment status of a military facility or its personnel?
  • Tests of security. Are you aware of any attempts to breach or test physical security or procedures at the military facility.
  • Acquiring supplies. Have you noticed someone attempting to improperly acquire explosives, weapons, ammunition, dangerous chemicals, uniforms, badges, or flight manuals that could be used in a terrorist or criminal act?
  • Dry runs. Is someone appearing to prepare for a terrorist activity, such as mapping out routes, playing out scenarios with other people or monitoring military facilities?
  • Deploying assets. Have you observed abandoned vehicles, stockpiling of suspicious materials or persons being deployed near a key military facility?

Personnel are reminded that all government information intended or likely to be revealed outside of the Federal Government must first undergo a formal OPSEC Review Process.
