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."

My son Facetimed me from Guam today 11 am his time. He said the Typhoon is expected to be a direct hit (150mph CAT 5) at approximately between 1 pm until 6 pm Guam time. People living in lower elevations were told to go to schools for shelter. Flooding in lower areas is expected. It is supposed to be the worst storm to hit Guam in decades. If anyone on here knows more info please post. Thank you.

Near Category 5 Super Typhoon projected to make a direct or near direct hit on Guam.  Prayers for safety for all!

What a beautiful baby girl!  So nice to hear an update from all of you.  I've not checked in a while.   Our son has also been in Guam for almost one year now.  Loving the work and a new adventure.  Miss getting to talk to him as the time difference and their schedule does not allow for much.  Hoping to make a trip over at some point.  Pictures look awesome!  Really looking forward to that.  Again, great to hear from everyone.

Hello Moms! My son has been in Guam for 2 years. Hopefully going back to San Diego next year. His wife had a baby girl  in Dec. My 1st biological grandchild. I will be going to Guam as soon as he gives me the "OK". I don't want to fly all that way from Fla. if he'll be gone on a deployment. I have 7 "step" grandchildren but this one is SPECIAL!
