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:

Does anyone know what our sailors do during the time after they graduate A school til the time they have to report to C school? Mine has 30 days in between, does he get to come home, stay at a school, or go to c-school early? Any ideas of what happens would be greatly appreciated!

Attention please Never ever use BBG Communications (Luxemburg) while traveling internationally this company is a rip off... more importantly don't use your debit/credit card to pay for it they charge like $50 a minute!! I'm not kidding on top of that they charge you several times even if you made one call. This company is found at airport on pay phones.

@ Tiffany - my fiance is in GL for A-school. I'm actually up here the rest of this week to see him each night on his liberty. He starts school on 3/21. I plane on coming up in a few weeks when he gets to phase 2, so we can also get married like navywife72. Then I plan on coming up about every 3 weeks on his duty-free weekends :)
