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."

So this group is alive again! Dan garduated Corpsman training and is at Camp Lejeune in his last week of FMTB (Field Medical Training Battalion) training. He graduates next Friday and will become a Marine "Doc". He is attached to the 2nd Marines there and loves his job.

dawn, so glad Dom is enjoying the Drill Team. I can remember a few posts of yours back in boot camp when Dom was miserable and you weren't sure he was going to make it! How far they've come!

Dan graduated Corpsman school Friday. I went to the graduation thinking he would be coming home with me but found out he was put on hold for a week. At least I got to spend a couple days with him. He was so happy and proud. Never saw the kid smile so much!
