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 son is going to be an SK. He seems to think tht he will be starting
school on Thurs. I told him about Meridian's rep and he had already
heard about it in boot camp. Word gets around even in Boot camp.

I finally got to hear from my son who arrived in Meridian on Wed. One of
the sailors there let him use his cell phone to call me. It was a short call
cuz he was using someone else's phone. Didn't get a chance to ask the
name of the person who let him use the phone. If it was one of the
N4m kids thanks for raising a good kid and letting Jason use the phone. It was
aea code 240. I can relax now knowing he has started the next journey
in the Navy.

My daughter graduates on wednesday and is hoping for Norfolk as we live in Virginia.. she too heard that alot were getting orders for that location... we are praying that she will!! She get's to come home for Christmas!! YAY. only unsure thing is if she will get orders before she leaves or will have to go back to Meridian and then get orders... UGH We really hope she will get her orders and be set to leave to her duty station from Christmas leave.
We keep praying for her and all our sailors!! God Bless all of them and hold them safely where ever they may be!!

She went to get long johns last night!! :) She is getting briefed this week and starts school sometime around Nov 12. She said that is the hardest part ... just waiting around to start school, I'm sure she will stay busy tho.
