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:

Wow, that's pretty crazy, though we've heard stories about changing orders like that before. We have a few friends who have been in the Navy for a long time and their advice is always: be as prepared as possible, and as flexible as possible. It does indeed sound like an adventure! I had heard some info about the prototype in GC messing up, does that mean that all prototype will be in NY? or just that there will be fewer nukes doing prototype in GC?

I will be at GC in mid-June. The picture was taken the Saturday before my husband went to boot camp. Our son Knox is 3 months old, you were right on! I am really looking forward to being in GC - how do you like it there? How has prototype been for your husband? How soon do you learn where your first station will be?

Boone is an awesome place to live! I just love the mountains. I am really excited about living in GC, though. I am just as much a fan of the beach and have been told there are some really great beaches around the area. How long have you been at GC? What rate is your husband? How old is your son?
