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."

Thank you Paige. My daughter posted to me today that she was welcomed into Neptunes Kingdom as she became a Shellback. 6 months to shake off the pollywog seemed long to me :)

You're welcome Iansmom!  I hope everyone's sailors are doing well.

Below is a brief video about the Howard and CARAT.  It's nice to see video clips of the ship and crew we all are so proud of.
