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 agree!!! I found this when I was looking threw a million things. It's from 2008, but I think it's pretty creditable. I printed it out and read it. It's around 30 pages. It has a lot of info so be prepared lol. I had a highlighter handy :-) I hope it help you. I'm going to pass it along to other ladies too.

lol. It's actually not that hard. They give you step by step instructions so I just followed those. I mean my brain is going to explode with all of this information. It's crazy, right?
At 9:52pm on March 11, 2011, Megs-Sailor Wife said… filling it out now?

Yeah I just received mine today, too. I am going to go Monday and get mine as well, but I was really worried because my daughters name wasn't on the form and I wanted to see if your sons was on there. I got nervous made some phone calls and found out she in enrolled in the program but they chose whose name goes on the form but she is in the system and enrolled in deers. I know a little info about some of the things because my girlfriend just got out of the military. Her husband was a Marine. The military covers the men at 100% for medical and everything else. For us (spouse and kids) they don't cover dental at 100% so we have to pay monthly which is gets taken out of their checks. So I think that's why we only have to fill out stuff for dental and send money the check now. Yes this is all crazy for sure!
