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."

I don't like the lavender either, especially since our's is an all male division.....but if we use the black's not as "noticable". :)

I have made with and without accent color, I like the plain one the best so far out of the ones I have made for myself. Of course our Div color is sky blue..hmm

That is what I am going to do.  Bright yellow scarf.  Lavender ribbon with black edging. 
Just ordered my scarves off Ebay! Their really cute. :) I'm soo crafty, can't everyone tell? ;)
mikki i like your scarfs, would love to buy one of the ones on the right ,not to handy with that kind of things , are you  selling any
I like the idea of Yellow Scarves for everyone--- they will really show up! ... and I like the pictures of the scarves already made--- but like several of the div 069 Moms said, Lavender clashes with Yellow, big-time, Ha ha!  Too bad the div. color isn't burgundy or something else, but I'll look for some pale-lavender ribbon & see how it looks against the yellow fleece--- maybe I'll go shopping Mon. or Tues.--- if it looks really ickey, I may just wear All Yellow and shout out "Division 069!", or something!  =)       Oh, I just realized... Div 065 is Yellow--- well, That's Easy!!  Ha ha ha!!!   

well crap.... i just realized 804 is tan but I think our division is going all yellow too... UGH  

 ok to my 804 girls....

are we adding the tan or gold to the yellow scarves for our 804 or going all yellow?  I think the gold color will be nicer then tan....


 Division 065 is plain yellow too! 

do you think that Gold will show up on the yellow? what about a rainbow ribbion??? just a thought, i dont know if anyone has purchased anything from our group yet?
BB - I'd stay away from rainbow --- especially for an all-male division. 
I saw some really cool gold accent ribbons. Some had dangling coins or stars or things like that. I thought it would look cool to have some of the dangling bits, if you had metalics....
thanks! this is my job this week. keep me busy I hope :(

Yea no rainbow for that group..

 I thought about doing a gold bow and tie it on my yellow scarf.  Did you come up with anymore ideas?
