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."

Good night Ladies, have a great weekend and God Bless!

Comment by Phoenixmom yesterday

I was wanting to send like beef jerky, popcorn bags, you know stuff like that and he shot it down, so I figure if he wants me to send him some stuff he will let me know. But I think it all sounds Great! yes I was told they have to wait until they see their name on the list to be able to go get their stuff from their post office.

My neighbor sent my sailor fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. He was unable to get them for a week as his C School hours didn't allow him to stop by the mail room during the hours of operation as they are only open during certain hours that did not coincide with his schedule.  That being said the cookies were sort of stale but he still loved and and appreciated them and her for doing so.

Good Morning Ladies, Happy FRIDAY!

Librarianmom I'm not sure, Yes we can send things directly to our Sailors, unless you send like bulk a few packages of this and that and have him to share with his unit. I ask my son if he would like me to send some goodies and he told me no, I was sad....he said mom if I want any of that I can got to the store here on base. He missed what I was trying to do.......I hope it works out Librarianmom, let me know what you plan.

A local Cub Scout group wants to make some care packages for a Veterens Day project and was hoping to send them to my sailor and his unit. We know we can send things directly to Our son and his roommates, but is there a better way for something like this.
