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 didn't really say. She did mention their marching had gotten better. 
I'm sure letters are forthcoming. She also said they hadn't gotten mail yet. 
See you in 37 days.

My daughter is in the same ship and division. I did get a phone call from her and
she told me that their division is finally complying. She said Sunday should have
been a Holiday Sunday which means they should be allowed to write. No news
is good news. I will keep you and yours in our  thoughts.
