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."

I am here to support my
Spouse/Significant other
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Needed to learn more about it
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

I am a proud Navy girlfriend! We started dating January 26, 2011 I knew well before we got involved that he was going into the navy just didn't know it would be this hard!! My bf's rate in the navy is HM ( Hospital corpsman) he wants to be FMF (with marines) :P I didn't know what to think at first, he does still have time to change his mind though i dont think he will. I just told him whatever he does im behind him 110% and will be waiting for whenever he comes home!!! He will be in the Navy a minimum of 5 years, i guess if you're a corpsman they tack on another 12 months active duty. After that who knows he may re-enlist, he may not, whatever he decides im there for him! Right now im focused on getting "US" through boot camp and then A school and then possibly FMTB?? (hope i have that right) If anyone has any suggestions, thoughts, similar situations dont be afraid to ask or tell!!! Im soaking all of this in!!

BF's ship date 3/22

PIR date 5/20

Ship 07/Division 173!!!! HOOYAH!!!


Update: 5/23/2011

Just got back from PIR and NOW have a SAILOR!!!! I am so proud of him words can not express enough!!! The feeling is unbelievable! He left for A school the next morning and is now in Texas for 3 1/2 months!! it will be another struggle but we have skype, texting, and phone calls :D plus im going to be able to visit him!!! sooo much better already then boot camp! :D
