As a family member, can I talk to the press about my spouse's unit and how I am coping during his/her deployment?  
Family members should use their own discretion in talking to the press. However, if you do talk to the media, be friendly, honest, and professional. Remember that when you’re talking about the military, you represent the military. Stick to facts and information you are personally knowledgeable about. Do not make speculations. Remember the importance of “OPSEC.” Even if the information you give does not appear to be sensitive, you don't want to jeopardize the safety of the unit's Soldiers or their family members. It is best to refer the media to the appropriate authorities (Rear Detachment Commander, the Public Affairs Office, etc.) for questions regarding unit activities. The Public Affairs Office can also provide you with more tips on how to talk to the media.
