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 son is finishing BDOC in SD. He leaves for Hawaii next Saturday I believe. Sometimes the plans change minute by minute!

Hi your son in SD? My son mentioned he knows another young man heading out to this ship and he is waiting to find out if he will be on hold or sent to the ship.

My son graduates C school on Monday and will then be heading to the Paul Hamilton. I believe they just got back from deployment last week. The ship will be changing ports next year and moving to San Diego. We have heard their is a chance they may not send him to Hawaii and that he will wait in San Diego. He finds out tomorrow. I sure hope he gets the opportunity to have a few months in Hawaii.
