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."

Update on Monday 4/30:  

Quote from our expectant mom - "You have no idea how much this means to me! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!"

She lives about an hour and a half from any military resources. Also she has two other little girls. She is an ex-Marine. She is a very nice young woman and a pleasure to talk to. She asked Pat, "Why did you all think to do this?" Pat told her, "Beause we are all Navy Family."

Ladies, I want you to know that you are making a difference in this young woman's life! NAVY MOMS ROCK!!!!!

I thought about gifts for the sisters also so they wouldn't feel left out.  Does anyone know approx ages of sisters? Or names so we could tag their gifts.
