OPSEC - Navy Operations Security

Always keep Navy Operations Security in mind.  In the Navy, it's essential to remember that "loose lips sink ships."  OPSEC is everyone's responsibility. 

DON'T post critical information including future destinations or ports of call; future operations, exercises or missions; deployment or homecoming dates.  

DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

My son arrived at RTC on May 17th.  The FedEx box was delivered yesterday but still no form letter :(   Does anyone have a recruit with the same departure date?  If so, have you received a form letter yet?

I'm hoping to get a letter this week as I know they designate Sundays to writing letters home. I can't wait to see how my son is doing. We got the box last Friday, form letter on Saturday. His graduation is July 14th!
