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."

WOW I did not think anyone came here any more. How is everyone? I know a few sailors in Hawaii and a few in Japan. I heard that they love it in Japan. Stephen is in Italy and is loving it, he has been traveling around and is seeing the site. I miss all of my friends from boot camp, hope all is well.

Hey Kathy, glad J is doing good. Stephen is hoping to get to gl to visit some of his friends next week but the time is flying but, 3 weeks is not long enough. Yes, I heard a lot of holds going on even in P-Cola, the Navy is running out of money a new budget is being worked on. Stephen was very lucky, he got in at the right time. So of the boys have been in P-Cola since November and still waiting for school. Maybe no snow here but it has not been nice either, lots of rain and cold. Hey Kathy take care!
