Social Media

Communication with your deployed loved one may be through social media, which is a positive, effective strategy for staying in touch. But have you thought about how social media may affect your circle of support back home?

This amazing technology, however, has been infiltrated by people who use it irresponsibly and criminally. It is essential to be aware of criminal conduct that occurs on social media to avoid problems.
