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."

Comment by LMC -mom of 2 Sailors! on September 1, 2010 at 10:06pm
Oh and I did tell Brian Budd about it but don't believe he or another will make it.
I will check with him in the morning for a firm answer and tell you when I arrive.

Yes 1 for Me.
I have a very nice 22x28 artwork for us to give the R.A. from all of us. was done by a local artist and is mixed media (? if that makes sense to you). Ter will love it since it is a picture from Vermilion. I thought It would be nice of us to thank the R A for giving us her time and also give her a memory from us.
I have a thank you card also that reads: If there were more people like you in the world.. There'd be more smiles like mine! Thanks.

I am adding a plus 1 to my RSVP - hope that's okay!
Comment by terbeasch on August 31, 2010 at 4:55pm
Susan - No special infor and we would love to have them join us, I'm sure they could get some questions answered from the attendees. I also got a phone call today asking if it was ok for an author (sorry dont have her name) of a book about being a military wife to join us and I said sure, she would speak after ther Rear Admiral. I hope this is ok with everyone.
Susan R Comment by Susan R on August 31, 2010 at 10:26am
I have to work since schools have started back. So I may send hubby as a stand in. The LTC of the NJROTC unit at the girls high school was asking about the event, I "believe" he was considering attending with a couple of the seniors that are planning to join after graduation. Any info I can pass on ?
Comment by LMC -mom of 2 Sailors! on August 26, 2010 at 8:25am
I just requested the Meet and Greet kit. It didn't look like anyone had. (I figure we can play pass the box at the meetings.) :D
