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:

I thought we could share Battlestation Info. By sharing here we will all have an idea when our SR is going through Battlestation...the most important criteria for PIR.

Ship 02 Division 904 BS tonight.
Comment by Betsy, mom of Stennis sailor on December 13, 2010 at 12:43pm

Hi Kate, Yes we have conflicting dates from the divisions.  I have not heard from my son when his div. does BS.  But, since he is ship 04, div. 020 I am thinking he starts Monday night.    

Comment by Kate-Ship 12/Div 039 on December 13, 2010 at 10:07am

My daughter, Ship 02 Division 904 was not clear when she would be having Battlestation.  She said Monday or there another Mom/Dad/Spouce/Significant other who may have this information?
