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:

Hi, I'm not sure if this is a duplicate message as I have replied before, maybe not to the right place. I am attending the Ramada reception on 03-10-11 along with 3 other family members.

My name is Kathy and my SR is on Ship 12 Div 098.

Thanks and I am looking forward to meeting you :-)

ship 12 div 092


we still have not received but 1 real letter and 1 real call-getting a little discouraged

but reading the comments-his group seems to be doing well, so I am feel better about that but it would be nice to know if he is having problems and if his graduation date will remain the same-hopefully no set backs

That is so neat that they are friends. I haven't heard from my son but his girlfriend got a letter today and he says things are great and they were close to getting their second flag. I hope to hear from him soon. But I love hearing everything is going so well.
