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."

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to my N4M family.

Comment by Raberta on December 25, 2011 at 4:17pm

I received The Keel this week.  So happy to have a piece of his division and comrades!

Comment by WillMom02-951 on December 19, 2011 at 1:42pm

DVD has arrived.  Can't believe how much I missed and I was right there.  Great to see William as Recruit Commander.  Their camera had a MUCH better view.  Best wishes to all of you.

Comment by Bandito's Mom on December 17, 2011 at 8:25pm

I think we may have received son's DVD, at least the package feels like it.  But he is in Goose Creek and we haven't had a chance to communicate about what has come to our address.  Will ask if we can open the package and view before we send to him.

Comment by WillMom02-951 on December 12, 2011 at 12:59am

Thanks so much Raberta.  I've decided to stay on untile the DVD arrives so I can check to see when others receive.  Will stay on the lookout.  Had hoped to have by Christmas so his grandparents could see.  Take care.


Comment by Raberta on December 11, 2011 at 12:52pm

@WillMom:  Nothing yet.  I asked my son and he stated it takes 6-8 weeks from PIR for those to come.  So I figure we should see it around New Years.  If it comes before then, let me know, and I'll do the same!

Comment by WillMom02-951 on December 2, 2011 at 5:37pm

Blessings to all of you.  I'm signing off, but again want to thank you for your support.  If anyone has received their DVD let me know so I can followup.  Sailor William's Mom!!

My son gave me the same frame. It is already on my wall. What an experience for a new Navy Mom!
