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 Annette, It was great to meet you too. We are still in Great Lakes flying out tonight, hanging around in case Adam gets some time off before we go. He had to be back at base every evening early so made for short days Sat & Sunday. But was wonderful being with him. So for now thats all I know. We will be getting home after midnight Calif time. Look forward to talking to you Tuesday. Janeen
