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, sorry to hear about your SR, hope he has a speedy recovery from his injury. Thanks for the support and prayers, and you have mine. Im here if you need to talk, we're in the same boat right now, but it will pan out soon enough, probably make our boys stronger, more patient, and more appreciative of the accomplishment in the end:). Keep thinking positive thoughts, our boys need it.
