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."

Robin-Congratulations to Will on his selection day. I am thrilled for him too. It is the best thing Derek has ever done getting into the Navy and getting into the aviation area. He loves flying, It's a lot of training but the Navy does it really good and really prepares them for the tasks ahead. So what did Will say when he called. Give him a big HOO-Rah from us!

Gail -

The guidelines of this community were created with the Navy and they feel comfortable with the content that is on this site. Just be sure to follow the rules - no sailor's last names, no specific details on where he is, no contact information. So long as you stick to the guidelines and are smart about what you share, you should have nothing to worry about :)
