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 had thought this was on a Saturday for some reason. I will be in the middle of moving and that day is a tough one. Will do my best to make sure I am there.

I believe this is for my daughter's berthing group... 48 "deck girls". It started out as a valentine project :-)
