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."

Have fun at the Meet & Greet everyone! I won't be able to make it since I'll be in Chicago around 9:30pm :( I'll see you all bright & early on Friday! :)
Comment by SuSu( Ship 07/Div 109) on March 23, 2011 at 6:14pm
I have contacted the Ramada Inn to give them the approx number for MeetNGreet.  Cant wait to see all of you tomorrow and my son on Friday.  From what I can read we will all be wearing RED on Friday.  Sounds Great To Me.  I appreciate the list of items to bring that helps alot.  Flying out in the morning first thing, starting to pack.  Everyone have a safe trip.  Leaving 85 degrees to 30 degrees but it is worth every minute of it

One day 22 hours!!  Didn't think it would ever come.  So excited to see my Sailor

and all of you!  Everyone travel safe!

Congrats to all of the sailors of 3/25, safe travel, and have a wonderful PIR experience! 
Comment by SSMom on March 23, 2011 at 11:15am

There is actually an organized event going on right now called Red Fridays. If you are a facebooker, type Red Friday into the search and join the "party". Basically we have been encouraged to wear red every Friday, March 18 to July 15 to show support for all our men and women in all branches of the military.

Got the call from my SAILOR yesterday afternoon!  He sounded good but tired after being up for 36hrs.  He asked that I bring his deer jerky this weekend :)
