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."

Yes, he did mention the pics as well. I'm glad we will get calls then. Just a week and two days until we hear from them again :-)  Marking the days off everyday.

Did anyone get a letter today? I was kind of looking forward to it since today is his birthday. It would have been nice to hear from him... Oh well. Next week is coming soon. Do you know if our guys are Saturday departure can we still spend Friday with him? I read grad-n-go is for the guys staying in GL. He'll be going to Conn.. Like everyone else I'd like to spend as much time as possible with him.


No didn't get a letter today :(  Was kinda looking forward to one too... I'm not sure my SR knows when he departs yet (he thinks Sat, but hasn't received orders yet)
No, no letter yesterday.  Maybe today.  He did say he sent one on Friday.  Hoping that it comes today. 

No letter today... Hopefully tomorrow.

did anyone get any letters??

No not yet.  Keep positive thoughts.  Only one more week!!

I got a letter. He was sending about 5 page letters until last week. This one was only a page and so was the one last week. Oh well at least I got one right?!

He said he went through the gas chamber it was not that bad. He said he was sick and not just a cold. He said he has fatigue, chills, light headedness. He said he tried to hold out but he was going to ask to go to medical because he had he was going to have a big week and he needed to be better and ready and this needs meds. I am so glad I heard from him but that was how the letter ended.

He did mention one of the "screw ups" was gone.
