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."

Thank you everyone!  I am taking it easy but I can type with 2 hands now!!! I will still hold off on my mouse use. 

MomofJoseph - I am glad you shared your son's scenario. My son also did not get his 2 week leave after A school. It just reminds us that even in Nuke school, there can be similar scenarios, but also different ones. Even what you said about the UIs. 

So, a reminder to all the new members, we share things from our experiences to give you the best idea of what might happen, but things change on a dime and sometimes on a pinhead in the Navy. So, prepare as you are able, but stay flexible. 

Semper Gumby!
