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."

Renee, I just called Diane and left a message for her to contact you. I am not sure what kind of help is still needed. Definitely for packing that is for sure. Welcome to the Central Florida Group - we do amazing things here and happy to have you aboard.

Diane - sorry if I woke you - you said call any time and I didn't want any mom to be left out. I'll be up all night - still cooking - got a late start. Ladies, bring your appetites and your families. A good time will be had by all. I PROMISE - remember the camera will be rolling - so smile pretty.

Wendy, sorry - we will miss you. Hope you feel better soon. Get up your strength for the next one - cause you know it will be coming up - us Navy Moms Rock - especially the Central Florida Group.

Wendy Mom of Michael Comment by Wendy Mom of Michael on August 21, 2009 at 1:33pm
I soooo, soooo wish I could come to this one, but I'm recovering from surgery for a blocked kidney. Also, I have a previously scheduled meeting with my landlords to sign a new lease tomorrow, and they're from out of town, so couldn't really reschedule it. I'm so sorry; however, I'll be there in thought!!
