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."

My boyfriend just left for boot camp last Thursday. It's now been a week, I can say the first few days were rough for me especially not being able to talk to him, but he did the sweetest thing and wrote me a note almost everyday starting when he found out in November the date he was leaving for boot camp. I write him every day and tell him how my day went I haven't got his form letter yet but that doesn't mean I can't write him. I'm doing better because this website is very helpful and I know a lot more than what I did coming into this. We've been together for 3 years now and I'm graduating in January and perusing pa career in physical therapy just wherever he is. This is definitely not easy but I'm doing the best I can and his family supporting us makes it all the more easier. My SR just finished processing and tomorrow will be his first official day of boot camp. ONLY 8 WEEKS TO GO!

@Alysha, I agree soo much! Nights and Sundays are usually hardest for me. 

Comment by Alysha on December 7, 2012 at 11:43pm

Does anyone agree that the days are somewhat easy, but the nights are really hard? I can't seem to get him off my mind when I'm all alone at night & I miss him so much! I've written him 3 letters already & can't wait to hear back from him!
