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."

@Janet, is there a quicker way to find you on Facebook?  I searched Janet Miller and quit looking for you after about 15 minutes.  There must be 1000s of Janet Millers on Facebook.  Then I searched Greater Latrobe High school and found two groups, but did not see you in either of them.

All going well here in Maine--a busy season for all of us working to house and feed the many visitors we have.  So many folks make their living in this short season we are all bustling!  Great news!  I will see my sailor on August 1st for the first time since November!  He has 12 days leave and will fly here from San Diego!  I am very excited---what a change I bet I will see!  Hope all are well and I will get to Facebook sometime.  Appreciate very much being included and not forgotten.  Stay safe and strong all.

Hello all.  Mama Bear hope you will hear often from your sailor.  It is hard to have them so far away I know.  Had another call Sunday from my sailor---says he is off the ship and into the town right after liberty is called each day!  Has met some SD people and is exploring like mad.  Sending cool breezes from Maine to everyone.  Barb---doesn't it just make your day to have a word!

WOOO HOOOO!! Heard from my sailor this morning!! He was able to email me from his navy email account. I don't think they have access to anything other than that. Not sure. The first email was all of two words "hi mom". lol Once I responded he sent another one. The second one was more of a short letter. He did say all is going well. He's learning MCMAP. It's Marine Corp Martial Arts and says he likes it. I was watching it on YouTube. Looks interesting and intense and a good way to stay fit.

Hello Adm60! Good to hear from you! Nathan went off to Bahrain last week and is doing well. Hope to hear more on your sailor soon.
