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."

They're having a blood drive then picking up their pictures, tomorrow's the Navy Pride Run around base(Walk-if it's too, 'boot camp debriefing', then they get their official orders/paperwork. He was G&G, but apparently, they aren't 'set up' in VA for CS, since they just moved the whole program from GL's, so looks like I get more time with him:)
