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'm moving on to the Groton Sub School sites.  Good luck to all of the new Sailors and their family.  It has been a comfort having all of you to help me through boot camp worries.  I hope you all can find a new group to join and help you through the next phase in our sailors journey.  God Bless you all.

I know it's here somewhere but I can't find it.  Does anybody know how I can order extra pictures?  My son got a really nice package, but I need 2 more 5x7s.
