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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

Mine does not, sorry

Got another letter and questionare today!!! He has told me in his last two letters that they were the last letters and I got more today,,, hahahha But he did say this is the last one for sure!

His division has gotten all their flags and said they have not missed one. He said he wants to eat somewhere after PIR, go to hotel, shower, lay down and use the bathroom in peace, lol,,He wants to buy some junk food and just chill. He said the schedule says his phone call for Friday is 1600-1700 and said be sure to pick up! ( I am thinking little do you know I will be staring at the phone all day!)

The questionare asked if he liked his Petty Officer and Chief,, said yes they are funny. Listed his favorite RDC (wont name him due to security). They make them laugh. I asked about his grades,, he said all he knows is he PASSED. He just got over being sick and cannot wait to get to BS and be done with BC>

He finds these questionares funny,

Questionare dated Jan 24th and letter dated Jan 30th

Ditto.....So I will post when I get the call and He is a "SAILOR" but nothing about anyone else

I am sure the parents from yesterday are stressing out I will be if I dont get a call today but if not today then surely they will do it on sunday night into monday morning. happy thoughts everyone
