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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

Thank you Courtney!! Im glad to hear they will let your husband come home for the baby. My husband will be in school when Im due too, so hopefully they let him come home.

Kimmy- once BC is done, a lot of pressure is lifted. My hubby PIR'ed in Feb and we have talked everyday since. He will be in GL for the rest of the year, but will get to come home when the baby is due (I am 30 weeks, due in September). My hubby is in GL for school for the rest of the year. My experience so far has shown that BC is the hardest part. Hang in there!! :)
