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."

Welcome, Sam!

Profile Information

I am here to support my
Spouse/Significant other
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
I love My Sailor so deeply and true
He is my Husband, my Friend and a Daddy too.
He chose his fate when signed that line
To become a Submariner and serve his time.
As the Submarine is prepped and the workday ends
He comes home to tell me, "It is that time again".
The night before "The Boat" gets underway
We prepare ourselves for that dreaded day.
He Packs his sea bag so snug and tight
For it will be time to leave at dawn's early light.
With his sea bag across his shoulder
and the tears in his eyes
we know it is time for all the goodbyes.
My Sailor and his crew are running silent and deep,
Protecting our freedom while awake or asleep.
For the beautiful flag flies freely in the wind
My sailor will proudly salute it until the very end.
