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."

Dont take your husband for granted. You will miss everything about him when he is in bootcamp or deployed. Even the fights! Cherish every second with them because the next day he may have to leave!

My husband is in SHIP 09 DIV 075

Hi, wanted to welcome you to the AECF group.  We have a "wives club" in the group just look at the threads at the top of the page and there will be some great info there about GL and living there, also a chance for you to meet with other wives that live there.


Although his school might be seven months long, most students are there a year (give or take a few months) because of the holds/waiting to class up but as long as you are together that is all that matters!   We have an active group, stop in often with your questions or concerns.


Have you gotten your first letter yet - it's so much better once that arrives!
