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."

Ok.  I've called First Watch and they said Saturdays are too crowded so they said a weekday is best.  I work as well but I'm going to set it and then just go in afterward.  Can anyone come on Friday April 27 at 7am to the First Watch At Union Centre...9233 Floer Dr. West Chester Ohio 45069.  It's right off I-75 North of Cincinnati.  If so, this is the date I've set.  I'll try to change it above not sure it will let me.  I want to revise.....Friday April 27 at 7am...First watch in West Chester.....If I can get a head count would be great.

I would have roadtripped from WI if I would have had the weekend off, but darn it, I'm working that Fri/Sat/Sun.  Enjoy your time together. ~Linda

Comment by ChrisyDVM(Chris'sMom) on March 5, 2012 at 11:27pm

Yes, I'm interested! I work every other Sat but if I'm off or can trade off I will come...unless Chris is home! He hasn't been home in a year and is waiting to hear if he will get leave in April. Keep me posted! Thanks!
