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."

Here is the link for brother DIV 297-298

That is the link for your facebook DIV group. It will be for your brother divisions since they do pretty much everything together like work, train, sleep etc. If you haven't already joined it please join.  You may be able to find some others there. But it is still early; hopefully more will join you very soon. 

My son is Ship 03, Div 298 PIR date 9/14/12.  I am confused on how to access the different discussions and obtain information, can you direct me?  Thanks so much.  Cindy

hi Cindy my son is ship 3 Div 298 as well...I am new here too so I am not sure what to do either

momoffive2012, Wow I am a Mom of 4>  All you need to do is follow this chat.  Alot of great info for the divisions graduating 9/14.  Have you had a letter or phone call from your son?  My son said he is doing good and not to worry.  Looking forward to graduation and seeing my son and meeting everyone.  :-)

My son is same ship and  div, have you received a letter or call?  Thanks.




I got the form letter on Monday. I've received a couple of calls. My daughter was getting information for her security clearance. But slipped a little how she was doing.


My son is Ship 3 Div 297 has anyone gotten a letter yet the wait is killing me!!!

My daughter is in the same and no, we have not gotten any letters.  I did talk to her yesterday, though, as she called for reference addresses and phone numbers.  She said she really likes her division, so I think all is worries, they are fine!!!!
