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."

Oh ok. Thought u were losing it! LOL. We can't post on FB rtc page about the ribbons can we?
they will delete it if you do on their main page, but you can on the separate discussion pages for the DIV's and you can private message about them.

Okay I am trying this again, please let me know if you can see this post. There are some crazy things happening on this site tonight lol. I wanted to let you know that all the ribbons for this DIV that have been paid for as of yesterday have all been shipped. I am still waiting on payments from several and as soon as those payments arrive I will ship your ribbons. There is still plenty of time to order and get them in time for PIR. If anyone else would like to order some ribbons to wear to PIR just click on my name and send me a friend request or send me a message to:   I will be sending more ribbons early next week as I receive the payments. You can see more pics on my page here on N4M's or on my facebook page. The link for it is below, just click on photos on the left side to see the pics and then send me a message on Navy for Moms or email me to get ordering information here is a link to it:
