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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

Hi Salma,

Glad to join your alumni group!!   Isn't it so much fun to be able to talk to our sailors - My husband is on the phone now with A.    This is great to be able to call and gtalk him instead of wait for the calls.   Sounds like they are transitioning to GC well and will learn official stuff tomorrow.
