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:

My husband wrote and said he knows your husband- considers him one of his friends in the DIV- thats so cool! From what I hear there are a lot of idiots in their DIV, dont know if your husband is saything the same thing. Poor things-:(.
Well hope you are doing well! Let me know if you hear anything! Also- are you staying in a hotel near the base- we booked at the Ramada Inn...

Hey NavyGreens, wanted to welcome you to the AECF group. You will find it to be an active and supportive place to learn everything about ETs and FCs. I was a Navy wife for many years and my hubby was an FC and now our son is the FC and is stationed in Hawaii...and loving life needless to say! Was your hubby signed to a specific rate or will he find out at boot camp? We have seen it done both ways but the good news is both ET and FC are great rates with lots of schooling on the front end of their careers. We do have a "wives club" thread within the group that I invite you to check out - anything you want to know about life in GL, the job, etc. is there for ya and if you don't see it...just ask!
