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:

Did your husband say whether or not everyone gets their wisdom teeth pulled?  My husband has his still and I am just curious because I have yet to hear from him.  He is ship 02 div. 915.

That's cool! We've been together for almost 2 years but we knew each other since we were freshman in HS. My husband is in Great Lakes too going for SECF (Submarine Electronic Computer Field) going to Groton, CT for his A' school.
