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."

Well we leave on Wen and will be in GL Thursday. I can not wait. We got a call tonight from Casey. She was so happy and upbeat. She does flyout Saturday morning sometime so we can be there for her to hand off her cell and laptop we just bought her. Her laptop died just before she left soooo.I can not wait to see her and to meet everyone. The only thing we have not decided yet is weither to rent a car, take the rail up to Waukegen then take a taxi, or just use a taxi the whole time. I may take my GPS to be on the safe side in case we decide to rent a car. Oh well. It is late and I am rambling. Talk to you guys later. Good night!
