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:

I'm sure he will. And with battle stations I am sure the division will help each other to succeed.
My SR just called and only had a few minutes said they were being called for battlestations.
Bs? You're kidding? I got a call the same time. Mine said they had to clean their racks. Although mine wasn't getting kicked off the fone like last time.

My husband talked to him. I asked 3 times are you sure. He was sure. Not sure what is going on with all the other comments about cleaning racks and such.

mine called too. he called about 4 oclock talked for about 15 min. then called back later and talked for 10 min more. I DONT KNOW  WHAT WAS GOING OON.i was just glad to hear his voice....take care everyone

my son still has blood in urine he gets 2 days duty then they test it again.i read on line it could be caused from too .much exercising.

Good evening everyone, I wanted to let you know that all the ribbons for this DIV that have been paid for as of yesterday have all been shipped. I am still waiting on payments from several and as soon as those payments arrive I will ship your ribbons. There is still plenty of time to order and get them in time for PIR. If anyone else would like to order some ribbons to wear to PIR just click on my name and send me a friend request or send me a message to:   I will be sending more ribbons early next week as I receive the payments. You can see more pics on my page here on N4M's or on my facebook page. The link for it is below, just click on photos on the left side to see the pics and then send me a message on Navy for Moms or email me to get ordering information here is a link to it:

Thanks so much, have a wonderful weekend, Lora

Lala. Were you going to type anything? Or are u just letting us know you are alive and well......:D
It is so weird I posted a comment saying all the ribbons that have been paid for have been shipped. I posted it for every DIV discussion and none of them are there. It is sooooo weird lol.
