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."

Then it must start tomorrow, It's hard to understand what they are talking about
Sometimes when they try to fit everything in the letter at once
Sometimes I feel I need a navy decoder ring to understand it lol
I hope all goes well they both make it through and I will see you at the meet and greet

Hi :-) My husband is also 037. I got a call this morning and he told me they should be going next sunday the 8th for B21 cause their final PFA is on the 5th.

Thinking that their date, along with 038, will be Th/F (overnight drill), 1/5-1/6.  I know that they are first to go through.
