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."

Hello - Everyone. I'm new to this site/group. My name is Jess. I have one step son, who is a cook for the Navy. My youngest step son will graduate Boot camp on Feb.5th. After boot camp, he'll go to Mississippi for A School. I had know idea, what AGs do, until recently. Do they spend a lot of time, out to sea?
I'm looking forward to getting to know, everyone......hearing your navy mom stories
