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 email, phone, chatrooms, and message boards, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

Yes, the notarized copy will suffice.

Comment by wheresmycoffee34 on June 7, 2016 at 1:21pm

Quick & total last minute question....My younger two are coming to graduation with me (6/10) and my son has his school ID but my daughter has misplaced hers...of course within the last two weeks...I have recently moved and I am searching for her birth certificate somewhere in the still packed boxes... My accountant said she has a "copy" of her certificate and she can notarize it and that can be used for ID.....does anyone know if this is correct or should I just go and get a new certificate...??
