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 Irene,

Just wondering if your son happens to be a corpsman working in the E.R.?  My son is there and his best friend is McClure, so just wondering if that might be your son I am always hearing about?  My Son is Jake Lake.

thank you Irene!!  I will suggest that to him.  He has been doing his homework on this, so hopefully it all pans out for him.  : )

Hi Irene, I've got you on my list! It's best if you can send me your info via my email: Send me info on your sailor including: a nice picture in uniform (jpg), name, rank, where your sailor is located right now (base or ship), one sentence of what your sailor is doing (their job), you and your husband's name, and town your family lives in. So happy you're coming and do pass the word...I'm hope for 50+ attendees! Thanks!

Thank you for accepting me as your friend. Nice photo album! I finally put a few pictures on mine today. So uncomfortable that my son is deploying but know that is the whole purpose of joining and all the training. I know he will do well as he is a pretty smart guy. I am so proud of him. Bet you are proud of yours too. So nice you could go to Neal's funeral and that you are there to support others like the Swinks. God bless you my friend.
