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."

My daughter just graduated from C-school this week. She's a HMDA awaiting her orders to the USS GERMANTOWN.

Hi Christine, I sent you a private message, sort of. Read the message before you add me as a friend here. The message goes away once you hit the accept button.
