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."

Well this weekend's PIR was awesome. So glad to have found you all here on Navy4Mom. Really can't thank everyone enough for the help, information and support throughout the book camp experience. But now it is time to move on to the next step, which means joining some other groups too. Good luck to you all on your Navy Family Journey, best wishes to all your new sailors, and see you out there on the other support groups!
Thanks again everyone!
