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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

good Idea mamawalrus, I got another letter from my son today yay!!!!!!!!! he past his PST even being sick now I dont know about you but I believe our boys have to be the toughest guys around cause I sure the heck couldnt do it. I was jsut so happy that he pasted. just 13 more days I am soooooooo EXCITED!!!!!!!!

thank you again ladies for letting me stress and vent the other day.

will light a candle for them for sure!

It is a good thing that we don't all have our "bad" days on the same day! nothing like someone adding fuel to your fire! We are all going to have those times wheather it is related to our boys or not, but having them away from us and the lack of communication that unfortunatly is going to become our reality at some point does not make the day to day ups and downs any easier. I know that I have said it 1000 times I feel so fortunate to have you all with me, and charish the friendships that I have been blessed with here!!!!

Ditto and cheers to 804!
12 MORE DAYS!!!!!!!!!! talk about being excited someone needs to tie my feet to the ground.

FOR SURE!!!!!!
