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:

MommyHunt-Hi Ruthie!  Sorry I haven't been on for a while.  I live in North Phoenix!  Not too far from you. I used to work in Scottsdale.  My sailor is in San Antonio and is there until July.  I'm hoping he goes to San Diego after that.  Maybe we can meet sometime!

Hi Nina, this group is not  very active. I can tell you that C school is where they go if they need to learn a speciality. You may get more info by joining a group about your sailor's rate.

Hi My name is Linda and my son just started C school in San Antonio.  The weather there is quite different from G.L. We are in AZ so I guess he's more accustomed to the weather in San Anonio. He's happy to be there but he misses his car. I guess it's different there because he said he now has to get a PO Box number  to receive mail and anything I need to send to him. Well, I'm glad to be here at the "C" school site!

My husband is graduating Jan 13 in Florida and he is going to c-school for mechanical/electrical aviation in San Diego...

Regina it just depends on his orders because he started out with orders to go to Norfolk, Virginia for c-school and his orders were changed yesterday

I am just trying to get a little info about where C school might be for my son. He doesn't know where he will go after A school in Pensacola!! Does anyone have any experience? He is going for the aviation mechanic (AD)!! I appreciate any info.

Comment by Greg-and-Angela on August 1, 2010 at 10:27am
C-schools are just plain hard! I looked at the homework given to my sailor this weekend and I would totally fail it. I have a new respect for my son , thank you Navy!
