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 Oklahoma City from June 12h - June 20th!

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.

Oklahoma City Navy Week 2009 is packed with events demonstrating the mission of the Navy and our proud heritage. These events include Navy Band performances, Navy Warrior Fitness Challenge, Blue Angels F/A-18 Flight Simulator, Navy Theme-Wrapped Suburban and Navy 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.

Rear Admiral Douglas McClain, Director of Global Operations (J3), United States Strategic Command (STRATCOM) and an Oklahoma City native, will serve as our spokesperson. In addition to the admiral, there will be guest appearances from 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 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

I'm in california, but my youngest son lives in Oklahoma City, so I am hoping that he will go over to the events this week! I'm hoping he will tell me about the events that he attends, so we can write to his older brother who is now in boot camp!

Wish I could go. I'm a Navy Grandmom. I live in Broken Arrow and that sort
of occasion is really hard in a wheelchair. My heart will be there though.
