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."

So, to change the subject.....

My daughter got in on the new APac program that went into effect June 1st.  She goes to school in Pensacola.  Does anyone know what her school is called, since it isn't A School and it is for undes. Airmen?  Thanks.

To me evaluations are subjective. It doesn't take much to get bad evals. In fact, you just have to be assigned to work for someone who decides he or she doesn't like you. We've all seen it happen.

I feel better scores are given to people of color. My spouse 1st class is the laziest person ever he steals my spouses ideas. Tried to steal a program he made but my spouse locked th program and made him look like a fool when h chief saw it and he tried to say it was his idea but got screwed. Loved it he was so mad at my spouse  and my spouse just said don’t steal my shit

I was actually surprised myself when I did the math. I didn't realize it was that bad.

Comment by NavyBrat on June 29, 2018 at 9:23pm

if you look it up and do the math, you'll see what I mean

Comment by NavyBrat on June 29, 2018 at 9:22pm

problem remains, evaluations count too much.
