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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

Well, I can't believe it has been six years and my beloved Warrior has fulfilled his commitment to our country.  He accomplished his passion joining the Navy's special forces and made it through his contract safe and sound.  He chose not to reenlist but to pursue a civilian career now. I thank you Father God for answering my many years of prayers and thanksgivings for his safety and protection! God bless you my beloved son with your new career endeavors and thank you for your six years commitment to SWCC. I love you so much!!  God bless and continue to protect all our military sons and daughters serving until they return home safely too. Happy 4th of July!

Frances - you did send the message, but with my ipad I can't seem to respond to PMs.  I have to wait to get on my work computer to do that, but posting in a thread is no problem at all.  Very weird.  But, yes - I am going to Sarge's.  I'm staying at the Indigo about 10 miles from RTC

Hi Bon. - how you holding up?
Comment by Forever proud on January 7, 2014 at 9:57pm
Aren't we the stuff FrancesT? Leaving Thursday from Atlanta, but I don't think you were asking me... My son was so nonchalant when he called today, like it was all so easy and boring. But when I told him I couldn't wait to see him, he said "me too, momma" and I heard his voice crack a little bit. I t was so precious to me.
