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:

Sorry it took me a little while to get back to you. I haven't been on this site for awhile. My post was old. I am in the habit of looking way into the future about things I can control. We haven't left yet. Being in the military I have found is about planning the things you can control, and letting anything go with the flow that you may or may not have planned. Always be prepared. Anyways, enough of that. My husband went from boot camp, to A school, then to C school. He will be down with C school in July and from what we know now, the last week of that is when he will get his first Permanent Duty Station. We are hoping Japan, and he is still an E3, I am skeptical of what anyone says, unless it's in writing. However, his higher ups, (multiple) assure him I can go with him no problem. He took his promotion test recently, no word back yet, but in his area not many people get promoted from E3 to E4 the first time they test. Any more questions, just let me know. I'm still pretty new to this, but I tend to research WAYYY to much. =]

Hi Ariana!!

We live in San Luis, close to Yuma, my son  decided to get enlisted in the Navy and here we are !! I miss him so much, he will stay in GL for A School, so we are going to be able to spend the weekend with him, hopefully, we are leaving AZ next  4/16/14 from Phx airport.   He was so excited leaving AZ and even trading AZ/Illinois weather, but not later than  week he hated the snow lol.
