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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

It is to the right of the receptionist desk.  Take the long corridor around and there should be a table at the door with someone manning it.  They give out tags for you to write your name and where you are from.  Of course we all know each other by some pseudonym or the other.  I am sure there will be lots of Kates.  Hope to see you all there.

I get that this is at the Ramada Inn, but where exactly inside is it at? The restaurant, or a banquet room? Does anyone know?
