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:

Awww! I'm so happy you were able to spend the day with him! I know it must have been hard to leave, but there are other visits to anticipate and enjoy! As to the Mom-induced AWOL, I don't know that the Navy would smile at the notion, but I'm sure that it would elicit at least one grin at the originality. "No, really, Sir. My Mother made me do it." "I suppose your dog ate your homework, too." :-p
