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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

Hello Nan, thanks for sharing. Sorry about your lose. You are right, pets become part of the family...Abby is beautiful. I'm thinking about getting a dog when my daughter leaves in March. ....

I know how attached we all get to our little ones.  14 years with tiger is wonderful. We just lost our Buffy at 15 and it was very hard.  We still have Gizmo who is 10 and our puppy Abby, 14 months old now, hard to believe.  Abby is not just my son's dog, she has become my baby and I will never give her up, if he moves out, she will just have to stay

This is what Abby looks like these days, her look has changed many times in the past year.
