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."

Alex's Mom, praising God! I want to rejoice and cry with you! It has been a long journey. I have thought of you and prayed often. May God be with Alex as he continues the next chapter of his journey.

I too will be leaving this group. My sailor is now in A school and so far loving it. I've really enjoyed reading posts. This site has really helped me get through some trying times. Thanks everyone!

I am leaving the group too. Thank you all for helping me get through the days while my sailor was in boot camp. Best wishes to all of you. Hey my youngest is 16, I just might be back in a couple of years. God bless.
