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."

You can tell I`m seriously BRAND NEW to this site.l0l It took me literally hours trying to figure out where your comment to me was.hahaa BUT I finally read it and now replying I do apologize for the late reply. Well to answer your question I`m holding up better than I thought I would. His letter just made it even better :) it is comforting to read his letter even if it was short. I never knew that receiving a letter would be feel that amazing.l0l I`m new to the whole writing a letter thing and actually sending it to someone. I never thought that I`d ever love writing a letter as much as I do only because it means so much to me. But how are you holding up? I read that our SR`s are in the same DIV? If I`m mistaken I`m sorry.l0l but I think that`s what one of your comments in the groups say.

Calls for Recruits.org would like you to know about a program for the Men and Women of our Armed Forces.  I am giving away free phone cards for Recruits to use while they are in basic training to keep in touch with Family Members and Loved Ones.  I feel that the Family, Loved Ones, nor the Men and Women of our Armed Forces should have to pay for phone calls from Boot Camp.  Please click the link above and get your new Service Member the FREE phone cards they need.

I wrote my first letter today.  I've saved all the clipping from the newspaper from the Hockey games -- Coyotes won today!

Go to facebook and look up http://www.facebook.com/NavyRecruitTrainingCommand

They have pictures there.  I'll try to find the other places.

Great!  I'm trying to find out if we should be writing or not.  I don't think we get an official letter for a couple weeks, but I think some people get an address from the recruiter.  How do you like my profile picture?  I tried to get a picture of the ocean, but it's hard to see.  It's the sunset over the ocean on a cruise.
