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:

Hey Marc C, I spoke with my son today and he says he knows your son. Hopefully, you got a phone call today also. They sound like they are doing well. He had a short ten minutes to talk so I couldnt ask many questions. But he did say all of his div is still intact. Thats good...said they were testing. So pray for passing scores...take care.
