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."

Sure has been a long time since I've been on here.  I usually go to the ships group that my son is on.  Makin Island.

Thank you for the info I will have to keep my eye out  for it thanks again


Comment by ISH-MOM on February 22, 2011 at 5:19pm
Thanks.  I just got off the phone with the Photo Lab.  They were just sent out.  It took 6-8 wks after grad date.  So we should be seeing them anyday now.. They were sent out USPS.  So it might take a little longer that usual.  Keep an eye out for it. 
Comment by nanny2 on February 22, 2011 at 5:11pm

I haven't received ours either. I found the number for the Photo Lab, not sure if that's who you call but I'm going to try.    847-578-6205

Ish-Mom   if you or your sailor ordered  pkg A in the pics, the keel was included, not sure how it works after graduation.  You could call the Photo lab also.

Walker  let us know if you have any luck, I will do the same.

Comment by ISH-MOM on February 22, 2011 at 4:30pm

I see.  I wonder if there is still a way to order them?

Comment by walker12003 ship03 div028 on February 22, 2011 at 4:26pm
