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 would be happy to answer any questions you may have about Groton, Ct... I got married on the Natulius Sub, which is now a muesum. You should check it out when your there. You get to go on the sub and take a tour of it. It's pretty cool. Since I have lived in Ct. for many yrs. I used to watch the subs come in and go out all the time. That was my down time for me and raising my two kids, while my husband (at that time) went out to sea. I miss the beaches. Not a far drive and another place to take the kids too. How long will you be in Groton? They have nice parks and people are generally nice. It's a sub town so to speak. Alot of Navy/ military. Across the river you have the Coast Guard. Alot of shopping areas and you can't starve. Alot of places to eat. Hope this helps you out some.
Your pics are beautiful. Nice family.
