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."

Does the M & G cost anything? & if it does do you need a deposit? If not, put us down for 4, possibly 6 if that is ok.

is it too late to RSVP for the Meet & Greet @ Anastasia's? We are going to the one @ the Ramada &would like to try to make it to that one also. Would it be a problem if we showed up w/o RSVPing? Or should we RSVP just in case?

Thank you for inviting all of us to the meet and greet. My mom and I will be coming to Anatasia as well. (2) Looking forward to meeting everyone, can you clarify if a red/white and blue ribbon is what everyone is wearing.

Hi, wanted to welcome you to the AECF group. I see your son is still at boot camp so you probably don't know which rate he is going into yet but both are great rates with lots of schooling on the front end and well respected in the Navy. Our son is an FC and is stationed in Hawaii now. He is actually on his first deployment and is doing well. You can expect your son to spend his first year (give or take) in GL and then they will move to another state for his C school. Location and length to be determined at the end of A school and it will be based on which rate he gets and what system he will be working with. Our group is a busy one, stop by often and welcome!
