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."

actually theres nothing you can really do.they will allow you to cancel it and use it to later date and you have to pay for cancellation i think and pay again for booking and also you have to pay whatever extra on that.but if the customer service is really nice to help u they will refund the money.happend to me before i have to cancel my flight cuz hubby wont be home in japan.but the next time i cancelled another flight the customer service saying he cant do anything about it
