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."

Hi Jacque- welcome to the group. We made reservations at the Quality Inn. I haven't booked our flight yet. Those phone call sure are great huh? Even if they are bittersweet, I told Tori we can't cry because then we can't understand each other and who knows how much time we have, it didn't stop us from crying lol. The contact does make things 100 times better though. 32 days left, Wow. I love that time is flying by.
