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:

Goodmorning Donna, That sounds like a great plan...Check at the NEX for any tickets you might want to purchase they will probably be cheaper.It's worth a try anyway.I'm really hoping they don't have to leave for A school till Sunday.Do you know where Steven will be going for that and I think it's 4 weeks.Also check with your recruiter,there is something called RAP where they can have 5 free days of leave if they just help out at the recruiting office.Mine told me to call when I knew his A school grad date and assignment and then they could set it up.Also I wasn't even thinking of a beach that sound good too.So much to do so little time! We are gonna leave at like 4:30 thurs am. Have a great day!      -Ruth

Hey Donna, one thing that I heard was that we want to make plans to do all kinds of things with our sailors but we need to keep in mind that they really havn't been out in the world for 2 mos and they might get overwhelmed so we might all need to play it by ear.Does your hotel have a pool.We are staying at the hamptom in so if you are interested maybe we could hang out at the pool.Just a thought but we will play it by ear.I hope we might letters tomorrow.All this waiting is for the damn birds!           -Ruth
