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."

Received 2 letters from my baby boy this evening...I'm still laughing out loud over them.  Despite basic training he has not lost his comedic touch.  He said he really enjoying it.  He let me know that he probably wont be able to call much if again soon...said this was hell week and they would be very busy.  I'm assuming he wrote the letters this past Sunday.  Crazy the end of the letter he asked me to send him lotion, toothpaste and a stick of don't know if he was serious or not.  I would hate to send it and he get in trouble.  I was under the impression we couldn't send packages. He also asked to pleaseeeeee send more pics...I have been copying them and writing the letters on the paper with the pictures...I think it provides him a feeling of still being connected.  I'm going to send him an entire page of pictures tonight to fulfill his request.  I can not wait to see him!  3 Fridays after tomorrow!!!!!  I hope to meet most of you there.  Be blessed.

I just read my letter my son got move to another division. Something happen I am not sure what happen. It was serious just keep him lifted up in prayers.
