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."

One of my most rewarding and tearful duties while in the Navy was as the Casualty Assistance Calls Officer (CACO) for Northwestern Wisconsin and upper Minnesota.  I made thirty active duty calls and provided thirty courtesy honors for Navy retired and Veterans enlisting the assistance of AL and VFW.  Unfortunately most active duty deaths were in automobile accidents.

Glad to hear from you, Florence.  You are keeping busy!

I have been to York, NE a few times.  May I ask why there?

Blessings to all.

I'm trying to stay warm.  Hope you are doing alright, Cecelia.  At least it is February and the sun is staying around longer!!

Hi,  Please pray for this family.  Chief Painter's mom goes to my church.  This has been really hard on them which I am sure you can relate to. Peace,
