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:

Wow, thank you joshswife, I clicked on the link and just purchased one so if he is able to call, i will have the information to give to him. If he doesn't call, I can mail it on Monday. Thanks, I feel so much better. Just praying that he calls. 3 weeks is a long time not to talk.

joshswife ~ Thanks. I also heard that he could buy a card on base, but that the time it takes to stand in line to purchase one is taken away from his actual talk time. So I'm hoping that by sending him one, I'll save him 10 minutes of talk time.! :)

Thank you so very much for that information. That helps me so much.. I will do just that. I hope you here from your husband soon. Being a single mom is hard when you are use to having his loving hand beside you up to this point. I hope and pray a letter comes for you on Saturday.. What a great gift for your heart, just before Mothers Day!!!
