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, Heather. My daughter also expressly told me to try to find you! Gotta follow orders, you know. You've already replied on the other group/forum or whatever it's called on here where I posted trying to find you. Thank you for that. I love being able to come on here at least once a day and checking to see if there's something I'm missing. Yvette is very good at telling me what she's doing -- after she's done it -- but not very good at giving me a run down of what's upcoming on her schedule. I don't know if she passed her physical fitness test yet. She was suffering from some knee problems, and she's never been a very fast runner. I'm absolutely not concerned with her academic things, but the run, boy, that's a concern of mine. Yvette will be staying in GL for her A school for AECF -- don't know if it's ET or FC yet -- and then who knows where she'll go for C school. I think she'll be in GL for something like 17 or 18 months before she gets to C school. I used to live in Florida when my dad was in the Air Force. I loved it there. The most beautiful sandy beaches you've ever seen. Well, keep in touch. So glad to meet you, and we'll see you at PIR.

Finally found someone else with a Div.9 ship06. My granddaughter Autumn is assigned there also. Haven't heard from her myself yet. I know she had to get some wisdom teeth out. Sure hope that goes okay.
