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."

Blue Star Mother's of Corona (CA30) had a goal of 1000 care packages this year and we hit 1015!  The final packing party was on Saturday and was a huge success. 

There's going to be a lot of happy Sailor's/Soldiers this year!
