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."

Good luck Leah.  All will be good.  We are thinking of you and your SR. This is such a rollercoaster ride ;O)


Thank You!! Hopefully you will get that call soon!!
I think Leah is correct.
I really wish they would call. I miss my sr sooo much. 321 and 322 have been having some down time. They were able to use a computer. Now BS starts tonight into 10am. Right?? I can't wait to meet you all Thurs night. Who is going?? Well my name is Michele.  
Do we know if it's tonight or Monday night?  Sorry, I won't be there on Thursday night because we don't fly in until 11:00 p.m. Thursday night.  My name is Dawn and would love to meet you on Friday :)
Ill be there. Yesterday I hugged my srs pillow and smelled his smell lol crazy but I cried cuz I miss him.
