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."

Way to go Div. 337 for winning Captains Cup today!  Next step Battlestations!
How did you find that out? Did you get a phone call or something?
It was posted on fB and on the main page for this group as well as on the Page, Captain's Cup.
YAY! they've worked so hard to get to this point. I can't wait for the call.
Congratulations division 337 that is how it is done.

From what I understand 337 is rocking it! Good job brother division! My husband said he was sad he didn't make it into that division, and obviously he was close with being in 338. =)


BS is this week and I'm sending good thoughts out to all the SRs! Only a few more days and we will be there everybody. I've heard that basic is the hardest, after this point it's all down hill.

From all reports - it sounds like all of our divs are doing great!  I can't wait to see everyone of you and every single one of our Sailors on Friday.  LydiaEmily - I'm going to be watching out for you along with a few others - I know you will jump into your hubsters arms with extreme joy!  ;-)  All of us in 947 have been told that when Liberty call comes,  (please note the quotes here) "keep their asses in their seats" until our Sailors come and find us.  At Liberty call, our bunch will have to put their stuff away first, and then find us.  While that may mean we have to wait another couple of minutes, it also means we will get to enjoy the sites and sounds of all of you greeting your Sailors.  Hope I can keep it together as I watch that.  I have exact BS dates if you need them, just message me and let me know. 


Watch out GL!! Here come the TG47 familes!!!  HOOYAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Jump with joy into his arms as well as bawl like a baby. =)
I second that!!! Can't wait for Kiya to see her daddy too!!
Aww that's going to be the sweetest moment. I hope I get to meet you and your daughter. =)
