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."

LOL!!  I mentioned I was enlisted 100 years ago - - sometimes that seems not that far off!!  Women were not allowed on ships at that time (this was during the Vietnam war).  Although after I became 3rd class my command wanted to get me assigned to a hospital ship.  That was the only ship where women could serve.  I turned them down because it would not have been a real opportunity for me.  As it turned out I never had a chance to advance any further as an OS anyway because a minimum of 6 months was required to be served on a ship as an OS and that just wasn't available.  A few years later they started assigning women to ships but by then I was out.  Things are so much better for our girls now!!!
