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."

Well Thanksgiving is just around the corner. My son is now in Va. He is set to fly to Fresno Ca on the 21st of November. Lemoore will be his home base. With him getting there the day before turkey day, does anyone know if he will be able to come home for the holiday. We live only 90  miles from there, so we would love to pick him up.
