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."

Hi, I was just wondering if they are allowed to take anything with them to A School such as a cell phone, laptop, their own clothes, etc. If so, do we bring that stuff with us to graduation? Thank you for your input!!

Hi everyone, my son doesn't leave for BC until April 20th.  His A School is in Pensicola FL and I think its about 6 weeks long.  How do I find out if he's a G&G?  Do they have a decent amount of freedom in A School as opposed to BC?  I know there's no freedom at BC nor much time to call or write.  I hope its different when they go to A School so I can talk to him more.  Also what is "class up"?  Thanks for helping me with all of this!!  I really appreciate it!!

Thank you for all this information!!  I would be totally lost without this site.  I feel as though I will be more prepared for when he goes.  Its funny how I keep giving him tidbits about the information I'm getting here.  I'm telling him what to be prepared for as opposed to him telling me!! LOL  Thanks again!!
