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."

How is everybody finding out the ship and div information, is it from the recruiters or have letters slowly started filing in? 

The recruiter actually emailed us earlier today, but when I got home from work the form letter was here. I was expecting it sometime next week. Now I can only wait for his phone call....I believe I read somewhere on here it comes about week 3 or 4. You should be getting one any day.

I got my information by calling the recruiter and it was correct, and then I got my form letter yesterday and it was the same information as what the recruiter gave, My daughter left on May 1

My daughter to, got my official form letter yesterday, can't wait untill the 29th yippy!!

Hi Lisa, I wonder if this division is integrated? I can't wait as well. Now it's just waiting for the phone call! 

I don't know, I can't wait been looking online for reasonable prices for flights, totally outragious, but got to get a flight booked.

I was looking them up as well last night. I'm planning on seeing a travel agent just to insure that I get a refundable/transferable ticket. I haven't even looked at hotel prices yet! Yikes! 

I know the prices are outragious, and exspecially if you have to leave at a certain time of day it gets even more expensive, the brochure they sent the rooms don't seem to be to much but i guess the longer we wait probably be booked up, gonna have to try to book them tonight or tommorow, might use my points on credit card, got to check to make sure refundable by doing that though


Me either, its like a countdown, makes it alot easier, cant wait to see my daughter but then shes going to a school in pensacola the next day



FYI...there is a facebook page for your division!/groups/437211246...
