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."

Amber, I am sad to report that my son did not graduate on Friday with is Div.  He did not pass his final running test on the PFA, so he was moved into the FIT Div where he will retest in 2 weeks.  It as so sad, but I am happy that we got to spend 2 hours with him.  You have Frank's graduation Friday, right?  Good luck to you guys.

Amber, that is great.  My son graduates next Friday. I can't wait for this to be over. This past week or so has gone by fast.  I hope the same will go for you. Almost there.

Thanks for the request. It is nice to have connections to take us through this. My older son has dated his fiancee for 7 years as well. Are there wedding plans?

Hello.  Thanks for the friend request.  My son left June 4th.  I received his address a few days later from his recruiter, I also received his Box that same day.  Now just waiting on the Form letter.  He is on Ship 13 Div 229.  When did your husband leave?
