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."

Merry Christmas to the best group of Bootcamp Survivors (families) that I could of been included in for those weeks back in 2011.

I'm lucky to have my sailor home this year for Christmas before a future deployment (who knows when or how long - you just never know).

Remembering those that are not as lucky as we are on this Christmas week.  Prayers, hugs and love to those so far from home
