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."

Here's is a picture of the tshirt we all want to get for our meet and greet. We need to know who is interested in getting these? Need to know how many and what sizes. Need to know by 6pm central time Tuesday so we can get them by Sept 11th. Price will depend on how many we order. The more we order the less they will cost.

Is it too late order? I need 2 in the XL size please if I can still order them. When do we pay? at PIR or do we have to go to the website to order and pay there. Sorry for the late notice. Just got in from work. I haven't even had time to scroll thru the comments here or on the PIR group site yet. Heading out to the gym. Since I am off work tomorrow, I will scroll thru everything when I get back tonight. Oh, by the way, I sell these in my store (It's online), so if anyone wants one, please let me know before midnight tonight so I can include them with my current order going out. The cost is $5 each and you can pay me at the Meet and Greet. As long as I get the order in before midnight, I will have them before I leave and can bring them with me to PIR. 

i want one thanks

That is just too adorable! Would love too have one just don't know if we will make it to the meet and greet.
