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 cbc mom: Thank you for the good advice re my sailor's phone and excessive roaming charges.
I texted him last nt and told him to out his phone on airplane mode rt now, and then go online to Verizon and add me as an account mgr on his account. ( I learned this after cslling customer svc last nt.)
Then I can talk to Verizon and see if they will adjust these roaming charges.
I told him to set up VIBER account rt after he arrived; as his DivO had suggested when I asked, but he didn't do it and has been communicating via FB Messenger at least to us.
Since this tour in Japan ends ib earky August, probably no need for him to buy a Japan phone, correct? How much do these cost, Can he purchase at the PX (when he returns to Japan of course?).
He was probably making calls to US from Japan to talk to a girlfriend.

Hi...i sent you a friend request but forgot to attach a note. I used to be on this site all the time when my son was in boot camp almost 3 years ago. While he was deployed on the lincoln from dec. 2010 to July 2011 I followed the ship on the Lincoln facebook not on this site. I just happened to look at this site again as he is now in Atsugi and i saw your post and just happened to wonder if our sons are never know!!! He was stationed in north island and left for japan in december as well as your son. He was suppose to leave in jan. his squadron is hsm 77 as well.
