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:

That is great. She has not started A-school yet and not sure yet when she will. They had told her it could be up to a month so they may start at the sametime. She will go home after that then go right back to gulfport for C-school(combat training). Do you know where he is wanting to be stationed 1st. Casey has told them west coast but not sure which base in Cali she will in up at. Hopefully San Diago.
