The U.S. Army is reminding Soldiers to be on their guard against foreign intelligence agents. Soldiers may go out and have a good time and not realize that they are being watched or listened to. Agents can get useful information just by getting within earshot of a group of Soldiers, especially Soldiers who may be drinking, and talking loudly and carelessly. Something as simple as when your unit is set to go to the field or when they are set to start the next exercise can give foreign spies something useful. Agents may even find a way to maneuver the Soldier to where he or she can be blackmailed. Suspected foreign espionage activity can be reported to your base Military Intelligence Detachment.
