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."

So glad you were able to get one. It is very cool. Almost like their yearbook.
Comment by Mamamary805 (Joe's mom) on July 20, 2011 at 2:18pm

Still haven' received my keel. I was finally able to track the # down & thank goodness they had one left over & they are going to mail it to me! My sailor ordered package A & that package came with a keel, he wasn't showing that one was sent to me either.

If anyone needs the Photo Lab # here it is: 1-847-578-6205.

Hope all is well with everyone & their sailors!

God Bless you all my NavyMom family......=-))))

I agree with everyone, I miss this group too. Not the same there was more sharing of feelings and information since we could not communicate with our kids.

Yes we received Doug's last week also. I miss this group too - John C Stennis group does not seem the same. Hope all is well with everyone!

Navymom-Thanks, I was worried............. the email address that is on the site  for the DVD comes back to me as undeliverable mail.

Hopefully mine is in route to my house.......=-)))))

Hey Mary I received my son's Keel last week so yours could be on it's way.  I would give it a few more days since mine just came.

Hello everyone!

I really miss this group, I joined the RR group & it sure doesn't feel the same as our PIR group.

I was wondering if those of you that ordered your keel has received it? I received my DVD but not the keel, my son ordered the package with the keel but we have not recieved it. Does anyone have a phone to call?
