The Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, Inc., a 501(c)(4) public education organization, is more commonly known as OPSEC, is borrowed from a military acronym for Operational Security. And that’s what we’re all about: Keeping America Safe. OPSEC was formed by two former Special Forces officers after the shameless and unpardonable leaks of classified information coming from the Obama administration after the killing of Osama bin Laden in May of 2011. The organization is comprised of special operators including Army Special Forces, Navy SEALs and Air Force and Marine special operators as well as members of the military and civilian intelligence agencies, to include CIA, DIA, NSA, and others.
OPSEC is a non-partisan grassroots advocacy organization of former members of Special Operations Forces and the Intelligence Community. OPSEC is focused on protecting U.S. Special Operations Forces and national intelligence assets from political exploitation, misguided policies, and intentional misuse of classified information, all of which expose them and their families to greater risk and reduce their ability to keep Americans safe.
