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."

She did't date the letter, so I take it as this Friday coming up.. I hope they all do well... She said she recieved some letters so that makes me feel better.. we took some pix, and sent them to her.. It made her day.... Hope you receive letters today..   God Bless

I didn't know what I.T. meant, so I called her recruiter, he told me that it meant intense training, that's why we haven't heard from them.. I didn't want to hear that, but she said there are some that don't want to listen, so they all get punished.. which is sad.. That's why they haven't recieved their letters yet.. I hope you get one tommorow!!  My daughter asked for me to send her stamps too.. talk to you later,,

We received our letter today..  She said that hey had  I.T.  a couple of times, because nobody knows how to listen.. What ever I.T. means. We have written alot of letters, and she said she has not received one yet.. We started sendind them out I think on the 14th of Feb. I don't know why she is not receiving them.. I hope you get your letter today.. Talk to you soon..
