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."

He leaves 9/14 but said he could be on hold until 9/21. I guess in SA because he talked about the cleaning they do on hold like I've read on the SA MA site. Your son is a G&G then. My sons division doesn't seem to be G&G because it seems like they all ship out 9/14. Congratulations again, I bet you are so excited about tomorrow!

You are very welcome!

942 on August 29th...and the BStations schedule is complete!
At 11:05pm on August 18, 2010, diannep said…
295 and 296 are going on Aug 30.
At 11:03pm on August 17, 2010, diannep said…
suggestion: Can you put all of the divisions going on the same date on the same line? Easier to see the schedule that way.
At 11:01pm on August 17, 2010, diannep said…
They normally do them Thurs, no Fri, no Sat, then Sun, Mon, Tues, and Wed (if necessary). Your group won't do Wed because of the Thurs PIR. I'm thinking Wed, Thurs, Sun, Mon, Tues for your group. I have a feeling your 900 division will go alone on Mon (8/30)night...they usually do. Very possible that 818 is going on Thurs with the other 2 groups. They may have the rest of the groups on Tues then.

I don't think the 27th (Fri) is right for BStations. I see where someone posted tonight that 294 goes on the 29th. That makes much more sense. Normally there are no Battlesations on Fri night because of Captains Cup the next day. You may want to change the 27trh to the 29th for 293 and 294---brother divisions..

Hey! mamahink4 posted that Div 292 Battlestations will be 8/26. I think you probably can add 291 to that same date since they are brother divisions.

I'm glad you enjoyed it, it made me feel a little easier having some idea of what they do in a day. When I get home I'll go back over the Marlinspike letter and let you know if there was anything more. If you think anyone else would be interested let me know! I loved all of the navy lingo!

If they did not work out earlier in the day then they do hygiene after dinner/chow. Then an hour or so for "acadenic studies" in their training guides for tests. One hour before bedtime or "Taps" they "dress down", out of their "NWU's (blue camo uniform)" and pass out any clean laundry. Then to their racks.
Where I have used quotes is where my daughter said was the Navy lingo. So how about them apples!
