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."

Does anyone know how far the Navy Lodge is from the Ramada?
Comment by Pearl Harbor MA on April 1, 2011 at 10:18pm
The meet and greet itself is free. I think the provide light snacks. There is a bar and restaurant where you can buy whatever. If you are a guest of the hotel they give you a free drik voucher.

Will we have name tags?  Not a big deal, but if they do, we should put our site names on them as well as our real ones.  Just an idea!
Comment by talia on March 31, 2011 at 3:18pm
This is wonderful!  We arrive into Milwaukee early Thursday and are staying at the Ramada.  I look forward to meeting everyone!
