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."

My son just called me to say that he's finished w/his ATT school in GL and he will be heading to San Diego on Friday. At least now we will be in the same time zone. And Terri, I cry also when I watch the grad DVD. The cool thing is I can see at the end of the DVD when I finally found him and when I'm running up to him to get that ever so coveted hug.

I'm not sure. Her ship has been based in Washington and Italy.
Comment by Oneofalot on July 28, 2010 at 4:21pm
Sorry that it moved. They don't usually do that. Do they?
Comment by maussie64 on July 28, 2010 at 4:17pm
My daughters ship was home ported in WA until this summer. I could have visited her there.
Comment by Oneofalot on July 28, 2010 at 4:07pm
Yeah my daughter asked for Whidbey Island and got San Diego. Her friend got Whidbey Island. Go figure.
Comment by maussie64 on July 28, 2010 at 4:03pm
Close to my home then. 8) I am an hour from San Diego.
My daughter asked for San Diego and got Diego Garcia. LOL!
God's ways are (often) not our ways.
Comment by Oneofalot on July 28, 2010 at 3:58pm
She is in San Diego. That is sort of close but I still wish she was in Washington instead of California.
Comment by maussie64 on July 28, 2010 at 3:56pm
Nice that she is close to home.
