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:

Hi Kim,

I just received a call from Jordan! He said that he knows Natalie and they realized that you and I have made friends on this site :) He sounded great but he too is very disappointed in not receiving dessert as he said 3 "brothers" are over the weight requirements so no one is allowed dessert. He has the opposite problem and has to work to keep weight on. (very unlike his mother) :) I just wanted to share that we are being talked about.

Hope you are doing well. ~Carla

Thanks for the friend add.  Nice chatting with you last night.  I was going to tell you join your "New" PIR group....but I see Jessica beat me to it.  You will get lots of info. and support there....everyone going through the same things, sharing when they get mail, phone calls etc.  I'll catch on chat soon I'm sure. Have  a good day.

Oh know! Hope she doesn't have stand in front of everyone and sing! :) I am sure she will just be happy to have mail. And - no form letter again today! Take care!

Yes, we received the box last Wednesday. The next thing is supposed to be a form letter which should have the PIR date and address on it (I already have the address from the recruiter.) They can receive mail but the recruiter said they will not be able to send mail until around 5 weeks. They said no musical cards, only plain white envelopes, no stickers on the envelopes tht would make it "stand out".

Hi Kim,

Yes, we are planning on attending graduation. I am anxiously awaiting the form letter. Am hoping it arrives this week.
