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:

I cried reading his letter of four pages I'm so happy and so so so glad I finally got  a letter, I'm hoping I get a phone call today also. I've read that our SR's may be able to call home on 2-3 and I think that's today, I hope. *Crossing Fingers* I miss my SR so much, I reread his letter so many times it just makes me so…
