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."

I can't imagine going through the last 8-9 weeks without the support and knowledge that this one site has given me.  Friends - you will ALWAYS be dear to my heart.  Admins - you will ALWAYS hold a special spot in my heart.  You all are the best.  Looking forward to continued friendships with the PIR 7/17 Pensacola moms and continued friendships with the moms going to other adventures.
