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:

Sorry it has taken me so long to respond my son was able to come home for 10 days and we try to get all our time with him when possible after he left we had a home built and finally was able to move in. Been a very busy couple of months. My son went thru boot camp then to Pensacola for 6 months so that was great to have him close he graduated his A school in Pensacola and has moved to Oklahoma City reported to Tinker Air force Base for more training from there he reports to his home base in Maryland in December so very excited and proud for him. When does your son go to boot camp?
