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."

Not positive, but the plan is for three of us to attend: me, hubby and our daughter. Looking forward to it! Our SR is in Ship 13 Div 244. We just need to leave early enough to allow for any traffic delays from Michigan.

My daughter is Emily, Ship 6 Div 935. We are hoping to make it to the Meet and Greet at the Ramada, but not sure. We do not know if we are driving, 28 hours from the high desert in California or flying. Hope to be there!!
