the donut of misery is a pie chart that helps you visualize how quickly your deployment is passing, how much you have accomplished and how much you have left. it is an excel spreadsheet that divides it down tot he seconds you have left. ENJOY!
The donut is NOT an OPSEC violation, as you have 3 variables. The date they left, the date they come home, and the rate down to the second at which your donut changes percentage. In order to figure out what your percentage indicates you would need to know 2 of the three variables. If someone knew that, it would mean that you had already violated OPSEC, but with the donut, there's no need. 30 people could all have 16% left and all have different homecoming dates. Thus, the donut is NOT and OPSEC violation.
