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 Linda! My son Brandon is heading to Jacksonville on Tuesday and then on to boot camp the following day. I have such mixed emotions right now. This is something Brandon's always wanted and I'm so proud of him, but I miss him already. Love your photos!

Hey Linda, 


Thank you so much for responding to my email and sorry that it took so long to get back to you! The information you gave was exactly what I was looking for!!! My husband is older as well being 26, but we have both graduated from college and have a little girl. Really never thinking that he would go back to what he wanted to do 10 years ago but never followed through. LOL. So here we are and I am ready for the journey and very proud of him for wanting to do this! I will keep in touch! Where did your son go to A School? My husband leaves in February and the time is flying by. Also, we love Chicago but where did you guys stay when he was graduating any info you can give me about that? 

Thank you so much again you have been a huge help!
