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."

Best Regards.

I'll need your email. Not sure how to do that from here.

you can just email me through N4M, but here it is anyway. :-)

Spent the weekend in Charleston with my Sailor.  He hasn't started school yet so it's been pretty boring for him.  But we had a great time together.  Went to see "Act of Valor" about our Navy Seals.  It's a must see for Sailors and their families.

I just want to let everyone know you can give the snapfish PRI webpage to others. I just want to protect our sailors and every ones privacy.
