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."

Thank you so much! Seriously, your words brought me to tears. I know I sound like a lunatic for doing this for someone I knew for 10 days, but I can't explain the connection I felt. Thank you for helping me to feel a little less crazy today!

I am glad I could be of some help. I hope you get to go. Talk them into it. Talking to the "in laws" or his parents can always be hard.

I haven't done anything really. I have been to two NAVY graduations before and both times more people always came. As long as we all got there early there was no problems. We always went at like 6:30 when the hall opens and there is plenty of seating. It may not be fou though because his mom may not go. I hope this helped:)
