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:

Navymalespouse - Thanks for your encouraging comment!  First off, it's kinda nice to have "a guy" on N4M's!  My husband was wondering if that happened here!  haha 

My prayer has been that B would continue to live out his Christianity, even in BC.  I'm thankful for people that have been praying for him and writing letters to him to bolster his spirits and encourage him in his walk with Christ.  I pray he continues to let his Light shine to those who need Light and that he continues to be Jesus' Hand extended.

Blessings to you and your family as you navigate this new life = Navy!

Hi Josh, thanks for your invite. And of course I remember you. How cool we live in the same town. I hope your children are doing ok, bet they miss mommy. How about I inbox your Facebook because I remember your last name, and give you my email and cell #. My husband is ok with it. He can't go to PIR, he's got to go back to work so I am driving out with Alyssas bff. My one niece is getting married on 3/19 and our other niece's son is turning 2 on Sunday 3/20. Well I'm tired and I am having a hard time getting around the web site, I'm not good with computers so I could use your help. Well you take care and hope to hear from you soon, Melissa & John

That's great you got her letter!!  From what I understand, they write the letter the 1st week.  I hear that some parents and spouses are receiving mail from their SR's but we haven't yet except for the form letter.
At 4:20pm on February 2, 2011, cyndaroo7 said…

You haven't received the form letter but you  have her ship and div #?  How is that possible?  I think that's all you need to send a letter plus all the regular address. 

The 1st line is the only thing diff. 

SR (last name, 1st name, middle init)

ship / div
