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."

Hi Everyone!  Our son is a new Sailor on the USS Carney!  Arrived onboard June 13th, 2017.  So far, so good, he seems very comfortable with his new digs, and LOVES the homeport of Rota.  God Bless our Sailors!

Happy New Year USS Carney mom's hope everyone had a great holiday. It was wonderful having my son and family here for the holidays. We will also be welcoming a new little sailor in July of this year. I can't wait to be a grandma again.
