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."

Whitwoo:  soundslovely! Baker:  well said :) thank you

Comment by Baker on August 13, 2017 at 8:58pm

I agree whitwoo. The Blue Candle is a symbol of our loved one away from us. Being in the Military is a little harder than going off to college but still the same. They are away from home and on their own. The candle helps us to deal with their absence and also to bring our attention to their journey. It also gives us a moment to pray or send good thoughts to our Adult/child. I wish the best to your Daughter on her Navy experience.

Our Blue Candle Glows for All SR, Sailors, Families and Friends. Especially for babies yet to be born!

All my windows have white lights in them, except for my girls room...the day she left for boot camp it got replaced with a blue light and I love every time I see it. It makes me think of her. Oh how I love that girl.....
