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."

He goes to the school each day, but hasn't actually had class yet...they changed it to next week I think.  I know that my son went to the movies last weekend, but I am not sure who he went with.  I haven't joined any other groups yet, the nuke moms group has lots of good info.
