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."

Hey Sandra, my son is doing fine. He has settled in A School - Great Lakes for Hospital corspman and hopefully classes will start tomorrow. He had to stay in bootcamp until wed after graduation before he moved over so he's been taking the stress, financial classes prior to A School. Where did your son end up for a School?

I did get a phone call from Ty yesterday (aka Will). I asked him..hey do you know a guy by the last name of "wiggins"...he said yeah...I said..OMGOSH...I've met his Mom on N4M's site. apparently a bunch of recruits were talking aobut their Mom's being on the site, etc..and he thought it was really great. I said I plan on meeting you at the MeetNGreet. He sounded soooo much better, filled with confidence. A little nervous about an upcoming test. But all in was great phone conversation. I cannot wait..I'm getting more and more xcited. He only had 5 a lot of information was exchanged during that time...
