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."

Hi all! I am not an official 11/12 PIR mom but I wanted to wish you all the best and let you know your sailors are in my prayers. My daughter is on ship 02 div 902 for PIR 11/24/10. She will be singing in the choir for your sailors PIR. I would love to see pictures if any post them. Thanks and the best to you all and your sons and daughters!

Time to brag about 952....When I talked to my Sailor he said they got the HIGHEST BS21 score in forever! A 4.98 out of 5 and they have the most flags (ALL of them) of all divisions including the Battlestations flag! Boy - do we have some good ones or what!
