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."

glad that you posted about officer's too, cause for some reason the Lincoln command didn't include officers in the count.  And then we were short!  But I sent them in January so they got them after all.
Yes I am just not sure what commands count is including. He very specifically stated this so ..... He made a very big point of saying not to make specific to any rate/rank or job etc.... So all should be generic. All I can do it go by what they request, they are command :)

me and 2 others are still making food themed pcs as the fabric has been purchased and some are made.


I see on your stennis group that you have a Sue with 150.  Is that me?   I'll have to let you know how many food ones we get made once they are made.  We are shipping in Sept.

The food themed will be beautiful and popular I am sure. Thanks I will change it was just a number that we came up with when ME and I were talking about how many culinary there were. :) Sept sounds great.

Thank you so very much Sue, your support means alot to me!

I am updating your count :)

I sent my son his pillowcase from home, he was happy to get it...
I miss him...

How do I get my son on the list?  He is being transfered from the Nimitz to the Stennis and will ship out in July/
