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."

Recieved a letter from my son on yesterday and it was very interesting. His call yesterday was kind of sad because he actually was crying and saying how he miss us and wants to come home. Well, I miss him but I am glad he is doing ok...I always send him words of encouragement to help him daily.

Very happy
