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."

WOW NO WAY! ! this is one mothers day you will never ever forget! I am so happy for you. I don't think I'll get anything for my son because he is too broke all the time I wish you would learn how to save his money and not by so much crap. Oh well.I let him know about Brandon harwart. my son is having a hard couple of days because his grandfather just passed away and he could not come home for the funeral yesterday. But he is trying to be really strong and continue to do very good on test. He has a big test Monday and I hope he does very well. But wow, I bet you are so proud wearing your new jewelry! Have a fantastic Mother's Day

Hi! Yes mario esparza,  right now he's school house leader. His graduate 5/30. Yes I will tell him to be on the lookout for Brandon hewart! I'm sure that he can point him in the right direction.  He said that in 2 weeks,  he'll get his orders. Scary!! We're hoping for California

tgif!! mario found a girl that was in the AD working party. asked lots of questions then when an opening came up, she talked to whoever was in charge and recommended him. your son has to seek them out. he should get on it asap if poissible cuz he can get lots of study time. i dont know how they pick who starts school, but he needs to find out where that list is and find out where he is at. only so he can gwt an idea of how long its going to take. then check regularly to see how he's getting closer to starting. i think they take 15 at a time.

my son is doing really good in school.. right now hes the house-class leader...extra work. but he treally wants to be able to pick where he gets stationed. let mre know if your son finds that list!

Hi jojo!!! spoke to my son yesterday about the floods, he said not bad like the news is showing us. He said the courtyard has a lot of water in it but was not horrible. So that's good. He completed his first week of school yesterday and says lots of studying to do. I hope that our sons get to talk sometime. And I hope your son can get on the ad- working party.I keep thinking that I might go see him graduate but I'm not sure what to do. I know he told my daughter that he hopes we get him a watch as a gift for graduating a school. So it will be between the watch and a ticket to Pensacola, hahaha because of course the watch isn't a Cheapie!! but hopefully after graduation did you come home the next day.
