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 BarbZ  My son is also 02/906. Seems by your comments he will be on the same schedule as E. Coming home to San Diego then to S.C.  This is my first comment since I joined N4M. I just saw your name and new we had kids in the same group. Sounds like you get more info from yours than E. Tells me about their job at PIR. E. does tell me their div is one of the best there!

Just noticed that your son is 23, so is my daughter. She said one of the guys was teasing her about being old on their way to Chicago. I know it has only been 4 days, but still hoping for some word that she is doing well. Probably gonna be waiting for a week or two I know, but it is very stressful constantly wondering how they are doing and not being able to just pick up the phone and call.
