US Military to Troops in Europe: Don’t Wear Uniforms Off Base

The Associated Press reports that “the U.S. military’s European Command said Tuesday it has ordered its troops to avoid wearing their uniforms when off base, and to ensure the security settings and geolocation functions on their social media pages aren’t ‘overly revealing.'”  

“EUCOM spokesman Navy Capt. Greg Hicks would not say what prompted the new directive for the roughly 70,000 U.S. personnel serving in Europe. The order, issued Nov. 10, comes after high-profile attacks on soldiers of American allies Britain and Canada in their home countries.”
