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."

Wishing the absolute best for each and every SR this week !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  They are all tough  (kids)  that have done a tremendous amt. of growing over the past seven weeks.  I admire each and everyone of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  GOOD LUCK for a great future with the Navy.

Yes! Good Luck to them all <3  Cannot wait for Friday :)  Peggy - I am assuming all is well with your grandson?  I never heard anything from my son and I saw a pic of him at the PIR on Friday so I take that as all is well with him ;)

I have not heard from him either by phone or mail.  Just praying and keeping my fingers and toes crossed.  I am going on no news is good news!!!!!!!!!!!!  There was an excellent profile picture of him on their first PIR performance, but I have not spotted him on the last PIR. Still looking.  Just hope and pray that they all survive this week!!!!  Really be happy when the phone calls start coming in.

Isn't that the truth! I have been going on the No News is Good News thing too! LOL  Lets get these phone calls moving ;)
