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:

**UPDATE 7/29/2021** You now must be fully vaccinated in order to attend PIR:

Dan's leave wasn't approved, probably waited too long to put in the request, but he'll be for a 96 Christmas.

The holiday season is here...trying to figure out flight schedules to get son home for Christmas but it isn't easy when he doesn't yet know when he's arriving back to CL from 29P. Then he's off to the sandbox soon after the holiday...
