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."

ha I need help with the pass code to get on base my son was changed to the group 097 last week and he didn't say or send the pass code home so I could drive on base to the grad. could you send me the pass code for that date?

so sorry sweetie- ONLY your SR can give you that info... just be sure to ask when you get the "I'm A Sailor Call"

It's a MAJOR security clearance issue. Best wishes!




Faysnavyonship11div105... and anyone we maty have missed... all get to our private fbk page for Meet & Greet info, 097 group photo and "family" support. 

We are counting down and making plans : )

well looks like our TRITON RDC's in general were not out to get any popularity awards with their new SAILORS not allowing any privilages after BS21...too bad, would've thought the recruits would have gained enough respect by now for all of their achievements???

it seems the other DIV's have & receive that respect now...maybe things will get better by PIR...a sad "i'm a sailor" call today...praying for their rest, RDC's included.

...hope yours all went better...

I agree so much for the "building them up" part. 

I'm so glad you are on this journey with me! I was feeling a bit down after the "I'm a SAILOR" call- nice to know i wasn't the only one : ) See you soon!!! HOOYAH!

I'm so grateful to have had you also, as well as the others. very soon we get to see those brave Sailors and show them the respect and pride they so deserve, see you there. HOOYAH!

hi sunshine! been a long trip home today since starting it about 12:30am... sounds like lots of 097's are in P-Cola...8-9 flying out to Corry also...will call you this week!

Glad you made it home okay!!! ...looking forward in hearing from you!!

can't believe you are STILL finding more 097's!!! love the photo from "personal photographer" promises to get me some photos by the weekend ; )

I could kick myself for I found them weeks ago Just was not sure it was them. After taking to my Sailor I need i did indeed find the right family.  Now I only have one more name to find that was on his list of people he talked to the most.


looking forward in seen photo's ...just don't post any of sad me : /
