Some Observations on Urban OPSEC and Situational Awareness

Some Observations on Urban OPSEC and Situational Awareness by 1stMarineJarHead for The Organic Prepper Recently I had the great opportunity to visit with family in a major metropolitan area. This city was their city of birth, so it held great esteem and nostalgia for them. I wanted to comment on some observations I made about Operational Security (OPSEC) and Situational Awareness (SA).

Who Do I Answer To?
