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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

EEkkkk!! the time is flying by and we will be out your way in 3 weeks to visit our son.  Staying at the Navy Lodge but not the one on base.  Looking forward to exploring and relaxing. Any major restrictions with flying if you know ? Haven't flown since Aug. of 2001 so we are just looking on-line to get ideas. Just don't want any surprises.    Hello to everyone.......

He will be E4 in October
Comment by Heather on August 25, 2011 at 3:32pm
Actually, it doesn't matter to me if I live on base or not. What is the BAH there? What I am looking for is something newer with 3 bedroom and 2 baths.
Comment by Heather on August 25, 2011 at 3:20pm
Thank you, Keisha! Definitely going to do some more research. Seems like a cozy little island outside of a big city, sounds nice. I don't like the cold very much but I am definitely tired of this damn heat in Florida, too hot! How cold does it get in the winter time?
Comment by Heather on August 25, 2011 at 3:01pm
Hey all! I am a wife and currently in jacksonville, fl with my husband as he finishes up his school. Were about to put in our permanent duty station request and our choices are whidbey, Hawaii, or here Jax. I am very interested in whidbey and would like to more about it. I am originally from Louisville, ky (big city, not a farm girl) and have a 3 yr old little boy. What is living like up there? The weather, how far is shopping, schooling, the prices of rent or to buy a home?
