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."

Hello NH Moms,    Do any of you or your Sailors have unwanted blue digital cammo uniforms, white or blue dress uniforms that you'd like to find a good home for?   I just donated my son's blue cammos from boot camp that he doesn't wear anymore to the NH Navy Sea Cadets in Concord.   I hate to "throw away" anything that can be recycled/used by others so I thought this was great!  

Hope your all doing well & looking forward for all this snow to melt very soon like I am!!

Welcome Ichiban!  Best of luck to your son!  I have a close friend whose son has been a rescue swimmer for 5yrs so if you have any questions I might be able to help.
