Conceit
Most men will “hand out a line” to impress a woman. When you hand out yours be sure it isn’t a military secret. Be sure the line doesn’t make a noose that fits around Uncle Sam’s neck.

Faith
Personal secrets are yours to share with whom you please. Those that belong to the Armed Forces are not. The more people who know a secret, the less chance there is of its ever being kept.

Enthusiasm
Everyone interested in his job finds it hard not to talk about it. When you’re about to go into action it’s even more difficult. That is when you are “easy pickings” for the clever enemy operative.

Ignorance
Enemy agents do not go around looking like old-style movie villains and vamps. They are hard-working, meticulous investigators who can put bits of information together wherever ignorant people drop them.
