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:

Helllo, I'm new to this. I came across he website becuase I was googling answers to the many questions I had, so I figured I could give this a try.. My boyfriend left for bootcamp on Monday, I cried like a baby when he first left, of course. But surprisingly, Tuesday&Wednesday were really easy for me. Yesterday it really hit me that he is gone. I just feel so lonely. & dont know how to handle it really. I dont have anyone to really talk to about it, because no one…

Paige Ann, don't worry about transportation. My 19-year old son is graduating on the 26th as well. My family can pick you up from O'Hare. We live in Indiana and will be driving right past O'Hare. I will be traveling with my husband, 16-year old son, 18-year old daughter, 19-year old daughter-in-law, and my grandbabies. I think it's awesome that you are doing what you can to attend, and would hate to see your finances crushed by taxi fees from O'Hare to Great Lakes. There's enough of a distance that if there is a shuttle, it's going to cost as well. Do you have your flight or hotel booked yet?
