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:

A little about me:
Our family lives in the Poconos. We moved here 8 years ago. We originally hail from Orange County NY. Our Danny is 18 and ready to ship out on Sept. 13th. He is the youngest of two children.

Hey, everyone!!!!!! Keep an eye on the RTC on Facebook as they post random pictures of the recruits every couple of weeks. I saw my son in uniform marching the other day and it was just the medicine I needed for my sick heart. Please keep posting on the site as it is truly our only haven during this storm. It is the closest thing to be being with them as we can get at this point. Good luck to all and your SRs!!!!
