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."

So sorry about your friend! I'm a 216 mom and have gone through some ups and downs during the bootcamp experience. There are some wonderful and supportive ladies in our group. I couldn't have made it without them. We all have tough times...tell her please don't be embarrassed. Praying for your friend

I know I haven't been on a lot, school has been ridiculous this summer considering I am graduating in August. But thank you for all the prayers for Jayson. I really appreciate everything! I haven't heard from him in about 3 weeks so I am READY to hear him tell me that he is a sailor!!! I miss him so much and I can't wait to jump in his arms Friday! People better watch out if they are in my path to him! haha! My candle is lit and I will be praying ALL night for him! He is strong and I know everything will be great!!
