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."

Replies to This Discussion FB the navy said they don't have a DVD for 12/22.  Do you ask?  I try to call this number and no answer t

sorry, I press the bottom by mistake


I try to call this number because in FB the navy provide the number that iriejennifer have, but not answer and I want to see if they can reimburse my son the money.  I will keep trying. 

Yes I am referring to the dvd for 12/22/10 because I asked about that specifically....They told me to fill out the order form. did not mention anything to me about not having it. reading all your replies are the first I am hearing of not having it UGGG I will be so disapppointed if that is the case. However I did speak to someone about it. If they send it to me and all works out on a positive note will for sure let you know about it. Maybe they hadnt answered the phone due to the New Year .?.?.?.?
Oh, iriejennifer!  I hope it is true that they are sending out the DVD's!  My SA ordered when he ordered his Pictures and hasn't heard anything to the contrary...
Moms......definitively is NOT video for 12/22/10.  Today I receive a message from the U.S Navy Trainning Command explaining (I bug them about the reimburse) that in the next weeks refunds are coming in a NEX card.  Is automatic nothing that I need to do.  They explain they send to me and then I can forward to my sailor.  Stink!!!

I agree with you I was looking forward to watching the video since we couldn t make it to the graduation really bummed.


I just called the Photo Lab.  They do NOT have any videos from PIR 12-22-10.  There were technical difficulties.  If anyone video taped the graduation.  I am wondering if you can make a copy?
