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."

I would love to be a part of this fantastic event, unforunately I live in Los Angeles, Ca. I hope someday that same experience will occur here in my hometown! Maybe we can make it happen!

Oh I wish I could be there! Sounds like great fun! If N4M would like to set up a booth at FleetWeek in San Francisco in October, let me know. I'd be delighted to help!

Sounds like a great event. I will not be attending as our daughter may be home from Boot Camp at that time. Unsure.
