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 son just got back from his first deployment December 2012.  He is stationed in Hawaii, on the USS Greeneville, a fast attack sub.  He loved the deployment, 6 months long and got his dolphins and is a 3rd class petty officer now.  He was home with us on leave the end of December for 2 weeks.  We dropped him off at the airport Jan 12th, but have not heard from him since.  Worried, but hoping no news is good news.

Sarge just said the location was great because everything was located within walking distance.  Just to have things to do close and not spend all our time traveling.  Which made good sense.
