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 stepson will be heading out to the fleet after his upcoming leave. After which the USS Oklahoma City will be his home. 

I'm so excited to be a part of this group. Thank you!

My son is on the Oklahoma City

Since my son is no longer assigned to the OKC and this group never became very active, you will not find much help here.

I have sent you a friend request and will be happy to answer any specific questions you may have through the 'message' system on here.

Mine also liked Australia, but the phone he has does not work well in many places, so I don't hear from him often.
