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:

Hi Yvonne , thanks for the reply and for filling me in on all the date of BS and gassing ( thats my biggest fear for Deidre!) I think she just neglects to tell me these things so i don't worry but I like to know whats happening good and bad. LOL I guess their growing up trying to protect mom! I understand your excitement all I do all day is talk about Deidre to all my clients and coworkers, their probably sick to death but I can care less LOL. I hope Justin feels better, Deidre was sick 2 weeks ago but she fought it off real quick luckily no pink eye yet! Thats so irritating I can really feel for Justin with that crud!!! Well I'll see you at the meet and greet for sure I'm making my husband and I T-shirts with her pic, ship and div # so it will be easier to spot me LOL. Take care and fingers cross for this Monday, I hope they do well!. Debbie
