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."

Do you know how to delete a profile picture?  I have tried everthing and it will not let me.  It says we should not have pictures on here

Your photos will be under My Page, then go to photos and you should be able to go to the pic and delete it.

bpa1955-- I went to my photos and was able to delete it there.

I am here too! Glad the letters came today. Thank goodness they can change the guest list. He didn't put his sister on

lol, that is a good thing you can change it! I talked to Sarge and he told me that they could too because we have other family that was thinking about coming if they could. He just said to make sure my SR tells them how many will be there.
