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:

Profile Information

A little about me:
I am a mom of 3 beautiful children and a wife to my wonderful huband. My oldest son decided to join the Navy last February just before he turned 18. I am so proud of him and the decisions he has made to be part of such an amazing group of people. It was the hardest thing letting him go but I know that he will grow and learn so much and make lasting friends that will make a difference in his life.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it

Hi Kristie,

I have 2 daughters. My husband was a Marine and of course you know my oldest Marqy is her name, decided to join the Navy right at the beginning of her Senior year.  The youngest Bryana is graduating 6/12 and also decided to leave for the Airforce when she graduates.

It is a pleasure meeting you.  Marqy is an OS (operations specialist) on the USS Dewey, Burke Destroyer.  She is currently on deployment....its like BC all over again, not going to lie.  I am attached to my iPhone and computer and is sick  :)  I live in Reno. NV and it is 1hr flight to San Diego where she is dry docked, (stationed).  Hopefully she will be back in the US sometime in Feb or March 2012.


I too am looking forward to hearing from you and getting to know you too.

Hi Krisite 09/016


Thanks for being my friend!  Looking forward to getting to know you.  Totally cool that our SR's are on the same ship and in the same division.
