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:

No not yet!  :(  I am getting a little frustrated. I did get a letter today which was a nice surprise! This poor kid had his wisdom teeth taken out and has a bout of strep throat! He said he had what looked like a fungus in the back of his throat! Good news is the group is really starting to work together and the ROC had let up on them. I had no idea this would be so hard. I really miss my Son I am hoping I will be able to keep it together when he does call. Thanks for checking. :)
