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:

Hey sam, I hope your having a good day. No I didn't get one but Meg whose hubby is in the same division received one today. She lives an hour away from GL but this also means that ours is on its way. We will definitely see something this week. Fingers crossed. She mentioned that they've been punished bc a lot of the young guys don't take it serious. So hopefully we get a call this week or next week but I hope our sr's write in there letters when they are due to make another phone call.

Hey sam, did you receive a letter yet?
At 3:36am on March 13, 2011, Stacy(Div 149/Ship 3) said…

They receive mail everyday, but they can only send mail on Sundays. They are only allowed to write on Sundays, but a lot of them will write at night time when they can't sleep because a red light is left on (so don't write in red, pink, or orange!)

I already know his will be miserable which will be really really hard. But at least once we get our letters we will know exactly what it is that they need cheering up on. 

And by the way, we will get our first letters around the same time they get ours, so don't be surprised if they don't respond to anything you've said to him yet. He will soon.

Just so ready for the letters! Should get it sometime this week!!
