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:

Thank you for your message.... I'm going with 'no news is good news' and of course the Facebook pictures of my son are helping!  I wrote him a letter and asked him to PLEASE try to just say HI. It's all I need....of course I WANT more than that...ha! But I just need a word. :-)   Maybe after he gets the care package of COOKIES and stuff...he might feel inclined.  :-)

Thank you so much for the info! I'll send him a care package and a letter. I don't understand why he wouldn't email me.  Kinda upsets me when I see that most everyone else is hearing from their sailor. But I have seen a FEW of his pics on the Stockdale FB page! That was a NICE surprise and he looks great! :-)  So, again...thank you for your help!! :-)

Did you hear anything from your son yet about BStations? If not, maybe he will call tomorrow. He could have had watch today and was unable to call. Post when you hear something!
