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."

Just busy- usual stuff of life- I really do want to try to come- My Mom has been ill- she is better now- that has taken a lot of my time up.. It really depends on how she is as the week progresses- I help organize the Tybee get together and then missed it- I was dissappointed. But I am going to try my best. Hope eveyone is doing well along with their sailors, my sailor is fox hole training- I have no contact for to weeks and have two more weeks to go :=(, but he was so excited about it.. THANKS Mary for asking about me- Many Navy MOM blessings to ALL :=)
