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."

Ok, He signed for 6 years (5 active, 1 year of reserves).  Thank you for the information.

Comment by abuon18 on July 24, 2017 at 1:28pm
Depends if they signed a 4 year or 6 year contract. 4 years only go to A school; 6 years go on to C school before receiving their first set of orders.
Comment by boogieboysmom on July 24, 2017 at 1:21pm

Does anyone know if sailors would go straight to a ship after completing A school in San Diego? Would they not need to complete C school first before being sent to a ship?

Hi, does anybody has information on stg graduation ceremony on May-19th?  

Comment by jillymom on December 3, 2016 at 4:49pm

My son is on a destroyer stationed at Pearl Harbor; this is good as we live on the Big Island. They keep him extremely busy; he is a 6 yr. I'm wondering how the new ratings change will affect our Sailor's job assignments. Very confusing as they are specifically trained.

My daughter is an STG 3rd Class PO on a destroyer based in Norfolk, currently deployed in the Middle East. She's been in for 3 and a half years.
