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."

Comment by JennieO_Hunter's Mom on April 23, 2013 at 1:22pm

You are welcome V-- I will try to keep you updated.  You know how that is though. Sometimes communication is fluent and sometimes not.

Comment by goobemom on April 17, 2013 at 11:34am

Kathy,  I know on the past deployment Tim received 3 weeks off.  It sounds like he has 3-4 weeks off coming home from this deployment.  They have to work a few days after the ship gets back to San Diego to unload and close it down from deployment.  They still have to stand watch on the ship to.  So usually the first week they have to work some and then there are others that will not be able to take leave right away because of watch and other misc. duties.  I would say by now Paige should know what is allowed for her.  They are less than 30 days back.  They will port in Hawaii and then they will pick up the Tiger cruisers (family that wants to join them on the last part of their journey) and then they will be home.  Yippee.
