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."

I printed out eh questionnaire and sent it to my daughter.  I am sure she will get a kick out of it. Thank you for posting this. She sounded more upbeat in her last letter. Thank goodness. She had sounded so down before. Have a great week!

Hey Girls!  we need to try to win that Naval Recruit Training Command Trivia (on FB) contest held on Tuesdays at 1pm eastern standard time.  If we win, we can chose to have our divisions picture posted on Facebook.  Does anyone have the option to get on Facebook on Tuesdays at that time?

Where do you find the trivia questions on Facebook?

That's the thing.  I know how to get to the U.S. Naval Recruit Command Site on Facebook, but I dont know how to get to the trivia question.

Its posted at noon central time and is buried fast so u gotta be there right at noon central time

Darn. I would love to see a picture of their division!  I would never be fast enough to answer the questions on that website. Plus, we are not suppose to get on Facebook while at work.  How haver you been feeling?  Hopefully better. 

I was grocery shopping Tuesday and had forgotten all about the trivia! I will be on it Tuesday but watch it won't be as easy a question. This week was easy, I could have answered it!

His last name is the same as my middle last name on Facebook. Not Yax but the other name. Tell her than name. I really wish I would hear something, anything from him!

ok, I will and see if she knows him

I bet you will get a phone call soon. It sounds like he is doing really well. I just hope I only get a phone call with good news. She seemed so down in her last letter. :(

Ladies...I am sorry but I have removed the posts talking about the RDC you mentioned. No last names means any sailor...and there was a  negative comment about him. Please use the Private messaging system on N4M's or private emails (do not post your private emails on here please) for personal comments. Thank you.

 Sarah's mom... the trivia ? is posted on RTC's facebook page at noon chicago time on tuesdays..   RTC's facebook page is listed as U.S. Navy Recruit Training Command. This is whahat one of the girls on this website gave me.
