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."

 Hello Diannep,

 Is there anyway to know when Ship 13, Div 011 will be doing Battleship?  Don't want to miss the call and hoping

it will be before we leave for Great Lakes.  Any info would be helpful.


Thank you in advance.

Thank you Diannep - you have been very helpful.

Do you know when Ship 13 Div 012 will have Battle Stations?

Italian Mom:  Sorry, had to delete your post because you disclosed the BattleStations date.  Remember, we can't post the BattleStations date anywhere on this site or on FB.  Just private messages. 

Glad you talked to your son!

Ladies, what Italian Mom said was that her son confirmed the date that I was giving out for Div 011/012.  We just can't post that date on here.  Message me if you need it.

Hi my son is on this ship as well. Were you able to get any further information?

Tjmax:  Just sent you a friend request with the info....don't hit ACCEPT or it goes away. 

Thanks I got the information I needed! Your the Best. :) Have an Awesome Day!!

I was given a date for Battlestations for Ship 03 Div 17.  Was wanting to double check that date.

Just sent you, VickiK, a friend request with the BattleStations info I received for 017/018 to see if it is the same as yours.  Don't click ACCEPT before reading it or it goes away! 

Yes that was it.  Thanks.

How can I find out when my daughter's division is doing battlestations?  I am pretty unfamiliar with this site, so let me know what I need to do?  She is on Ship 14 Div 013, thanks!
