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 Morning,

My daughter wrote that there is a photo of her holding a flag, posted somewhere on here.  Anyone seen any photos of Ship 11 Div 200? 


Thanks, Cheryl

Prob on facebook

Thank you...we found it!  This is cool.

I can't seem to find it right now, but I put it on my computer. Let me see if I can figure out how to attach it!! I sent it to my dot. I wonder if your dot saw mine- which means they know each other. Cool! (wink)
Here you go. I had to change the name. Not that RDCs don't know who I am by now anyway- lol  Thanks, RDCs for taking care and molding my baby girl! (wink)

Wow!  They look great!  Thank you so much.  Yes, she said her friend, who's right behind her was out of step when she saw the photo and they were laughing about it.  Can't wait to see her (and all of them actually,  on Friday...what a milestone!


Thanks again...

Where did you find it?  Where on facebook?  The only link I pay close attention to is the US Navy Recruit Training Command.  They post the grad pics and some random pics. 


You are very welcome. It's funny to get some feedback on the pic. I haven't gotten any from my SR! thanks for sharing. Yes, this was on the facebook page in random photos. When I went to tell you where, I couldn't find it, but I remembered I saved it.

See ya Friday!

Teach...when did she fly out

She is now in San Antonio.  She's in the MA program there at Lackland. 

It was so great to spend some time with her and now we can communicate on FB etc.

How about your sailor?

Parrot- I was so blessed. She didn't leave till Sun AM. I let out a big, "Praise God" when she told me. I had prayed for that to happen. I guess this was when it was good to be in a later division. Many of the earlier divisions going to SA left on SAt am.

Did you ride with your sailor on the plane? It sounded like it, but I may have been confused.
