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:

keke mom, Have you been hearing from your son now that he is in A school. My son had a test last week and received a 94 and this week a 97. He is doing really well. It is nice once they finish BC and they call and we actually get to talk to them.

keke, How is your son doing in A school? Did he start any classes yet? My son loves it. He is doing really well in his classes and gets liberty on weekends. Him his rommates and other shipmates go into Chicago. His new roommate lived in Chicago so they stay at his friends parents. Good Luck to you and your son. Gail

I am doing much better. Rough week last week. My eye gets very tired easily and I have to take alot of breaks at work. Oh well. How is your knee doing? Do you PT? and not the navy PT. LOL I see you had your son for the whole weekend. Very nice. Wasn't PIR great. It was nice being able to spend time with our sailors also. The weekend really goes just so fast. My son will be coming home at X-mas for 2 weeks. Didn't you say your son was en EM also?
