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."

Terry I went on mapquest and punched in Buffalo NY to Great Lakes and it came up with 573.76 miles, I deducted the 50 miles south and that is what it came up to. I never thought Virginia was so far away from anything, but it is. You can go on mapquest.com and punch in your physical street address and then the address to the base and it will give you accurate mileage plus gas expense. Kim
1239 mi. I'm flying there if all is well with my pregnancy. If not, I'll have to go for the 21hr drive.
Priscilla, I hope your pregnancy goes well and you are to travel. How many months will you be during the month of December?Kim
Thank you. I'll be (31weeks) 7.5 months during time of travel.
Priscilla, are you traveling alone? Kim
I'm going to be with my father-in-law if I fly. If I drive, I'll be with my father. Haven't taken a long road trip since I moved to LA from IL back in 2000 so we'll see how it goes, esp driving in super cold weather & my pregnancy lol. Thank God for heated seats.
Very good, just glad that you will not be alone no matter what mode of transportation. Kim
Priscilla,

How far along will you be by the PIR date? I hope you are feeling well. I hope if you drive, you will make a bunch of stops. Gotta give that little some rest (and you)

Betsy
Oops, nevermind, just read how far in your previous post.

Betsy
So far I'm the closest. Roughly 3 hours if traffic is bad. 150 miles or so. Far enough away we'll need a hotel though.
That is awesome, right about now, I wish I was only 3 hrs away from boot camp. Kim
2166.66 miles We will be flying, there is no way I am driving across the country. Wow Priscilla, you're a trooper!!
