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."

Event Description

Navy Week is coming to Houston from October 24th through November 1st!

For those of you that are not sure what Navy Weeks are, they consists of a series of events designed to tell the Navy story: what the Navy does, why it’s important, and what opportunities exist in today’s Navy.



Houston Navy Week 2009 is packed with events demonstrating the mission of the Navy and our proud heritage. These events could include Blue Angels, "Leap Frog" Parachute Team, and Navy Band performances, Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Dive Tanks, SEAL Accelerators, SEAL Fitness Challenges, Blue Angels F/A-18 Flight Simulators, Accelerate Your Life Experience (AYLE) Simulators, Navy Theme-Wrapped Suburbans, Navy TACH Demos and Flyovers all intent to give the public a personal look at the men and women of the Navy serving throughout the world in different roles.

Houston Navy Week will have a Flag Officer as our spokesperson. In addition to the admiral, there could be guest appearances from the Navy Blue Angels, Navy "Leap Frog" Parachute Team, Navy Band and other outstanding local Sailors.

N4M is not sponsoring this event, but if you're interested in coordinating something special with fellow N4M members, here's some Do's and Don'ts to keep in mind :)



DO get involved with Navy Weeks.

- You are encouraged to participate in Navy Week activities when appropriate.

- If you want to get involved with the Navy coordinators, your group should appoint a "spokesperson" to coordinate with the Navy. (This will alleviate multiple calls on the same topic.). The Navy Week points of contact can be found on www.navyweek.org. Go to the schedule and click on the city that you are interest in. The point of contact for that city's Navy Week will be listed.



DO NOT independently contact the flag officers or VIP participants involved in your town's Navy Week, but do work through the appointed Navy Week points of contact listed on www.navyweek.org
