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:

Where do you get names and addresses to send the boxes to?

Comment by Tiffany on May 30, 2013 at 1:19pm
Jennifer took some pictures. Only two of us showed. We filled three boxes.
Comment by Carol in fla on May 30, 2013 at 12:34pm

Did anyone take pictures last night? How many boxes did you all get done?

I don't think I will be able to make Mandarin from Arlington during 5:00 traffic. Keep me in the loop, though, I would love to get together another time for a packing party! Frankly, I just haven't gotten prepared, either. I only picked up a few items over the weekend. I can bring them to the next event.
You guys have fun!

Comment by Tiffany on May 28, 2013 at 2:15pm
I can help. I work in Mandarin live in Macclenny. Please let me know what I need to bring. I have no idea what we really will be doing :)
Comment by Tiffany on May 22, 2013 at 11:25am
I would be able to help you guys out next Wednesday evening also.
