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."

Good to hear from you Soonergirl! How's your sailor doing? Hi Valtameri! As a matter of fact ours just returned home yesterday, for about 8 days, after a 9 month deployment. So good to see him.

Three years ago today we were in Great Lakes watching our SR's become US Navy Sailors!  It's amazing how fast the past 3 years have flown by!
