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 Pat(MP).  We live in Va.  Did not know about the family cruise. Am guessing that you live on west coast?  Haven't been to SD yet.  Hope to soon.  He was home in Dec. and hoping he gets home this summer.  Miss him so much.

Yes mona, definitely one proud mom here.  Wish I could find more about what goes on out there.  Sailor doesn't and can't share too much.

I'm here! My son heads back to base tomorrow. Then, I don't know what they'll have him doing while waiting for his ship to get back to port.

Is this board dead?

Comment by wlssmh on July 17, 2010 at 6:02pm
Of course my prayers are with these young men. I am a new Navy Mom. My son has been in only about a month and just left San Diego Friday. It breaks my heart to hear this news about these two men. Please keep me informed.

I am praying for the 2 sailors that was injured yesterday in a automobile accident. They think they were street racing. They are in critical condition, one with severe head trauma and the other had both legs severed below his knees. Please pray with me for a miracle for these boys. They are 18 and 20 years old.
