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:

Vette- Dan is doing great, he's found time to take up archery even. He can't get home for the 96 this weekend so we're going down to visit with him. He's in week 3 now, almost halfway!

Hey John,
How's Dan doing with FMST at CL? It's probably been a little warm, hopefully cooling down a little this weekend.

We lived in Bangor for 2 years - 95 to 97. We loved it up there. Lived in Brewer. Haven't had a decent seafood dinner since the last time I went to Captain Nick's by the airport. :)
