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 so long to get back to you.  My senior daughter keeps me BUSY!  You know by now that your son is not missing school by not being in Groton yet.  But I know it is frustrating to him that he is stuck in Great Lakes when he should be learning the ropes in CT.  My sailor is Spurgin.  He and your sons were buddies before they even left the Dallas MEPS office.  Bryan is working on quals and should be able to stand watch soon.  Yesterday he toured a sub and was very impressed.  It is so different for them now.  He has had weekend liberty and has so much free time during the days.  They muster three times a day, and have PT three times a week.  Hopefully the Navy will find those medical records soon and your son can get to CT so he can "hurry up and wait" with the rest of his group, lol.  Keep us posted.

My Sailor is from Allen and was also in Div 327 and is now in Groton.  May I ask your/your sailor's name.  I am sure our kiddos must be buddies.
