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."

Hi, my baby girl went to boot camp about 3 weeks ago now. I am so ready to hear her voice whenever she gets to call. I’m also waiting on a letter of any sort. I just love ❤️ and miss my baby so much.

My son graduated boot camp in November 2012 and was then sent to Pensacola for A-School.  He7 just graduated there on June 17, came home for a week and is now on hold in Norfolk for a week.  He flies out to the USS Nimitz next week to meet up with the squadron he is attached to.  Are you going to PIR?  We went and it was wonderful.  If you can not go, there is now a live feed that you can watch the graduation on!  It is worth seeing.

Hi ladies,
Haven't been here in a while. Had some health issues. But, I'm back to 100 percent. Hope everyone is well. We are here in Norfolk at The Navy Lodge.
This is our first deployment. I'm freaking out. Just a little. Does anyone have done advice as to the best place to watch the ship head out is? I hear at the dicks is not that good.
The temperature here is hotter than Florida. Wow!!!!
