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."

when we go to PIR, is there any way to find our division when we are trying to find our place to sit, is the siting divided up to let us know ware to sit so we can be in front of our division? I don't want to sit on one side and my daughter is all the way on the other side. How early should we start to line up at the gate that morning, we are going to stay in Deerfield.

who is out there?

Is there any one out there that has a child in ship 12 division 037 that has PIR on 1/7/11? I am so exited to see my daughter I can pee my pants. I'm going to need a depends that day. Any body from Texas? It has been a very long and hard road for me, I cry every day. You know, first child away for a long period of time with out talking to her. We use to talk every day (or text). But soon to be over, at A school she gets to have her cell phone, so that will make me feel better.:)

If some one is looking for something meaningful to give their child or loved one. thing of a challenge coin. something so small means a lot to them that know what its for. If you don't know what they are, look it up. the tradition of a challenge coin goes way back in military history, that stands for pride and good work. there is more to it than that but just throwing out an idea. you hand it to them in a greeting hand shake or hug. not in a box.
