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:

I forgot to ask him what happened. I talked to him tonight too!  

Ok seriously I cannot believe the behavior of some of these guys/girls.  I understand being young to a point but they are in the military and should be more mature with what they do and how they act!   Boy oh Boy...


Fire is not 49% contained.  146,000 acres and still burning but thankfully away from the town still.. we finally got some rain a few hours ago.. Not much but anything is great right now.. we are still the driest state in the country I heard. 


Well Nick's GF will be going down to the graduation and he will be driving back with her.. do they get to leave the next day or can they leave graduation day?


Nick is in C class....Your son is in B correct?  What is his last name... they only seem to know that. hahahahahaha


I am so happy they are about done... I cant wait to get him home

My husband finally went back to work on Wednesday, 6th,  He said it is super smokey and he was surprised they lifted the evac notice but I guess the firemen knew what they were doing.  It is now 40% contained and moving North of the town but towards one of the pueblos. Very sad as it has burned some of their sacred land.  


Talked to Nick,, he is pretty sure he will get leave, Have you heard anything from Matt on this?  Nick also mentioned that they all got in trouble Monday?  He was texting but had to go clean the ship and said he will call me later,,,, did you hear on this?
