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:

Welcome aboard trinialicia, You will find N4Ms has lots of support. Did anyone tell you that usually when they arrive at bc they can make one phone call to let you know they are there? I wrote a lot of letters to keep his morale up but they held them back until graduation. He was a little unhappy to receive so many letters at one time. I didn't know they didn't get them until later. You most likely will not hear from your daughter until she completes bc. If you do hear from her, be grateful because most of us did not. I prayed daily for my son at bc because I just didn't know what was going on until it was over. Sometimes movies about bc run through your head and you have to tell yourself those things can happen but it is not that common. It is tough, they work hard getting into shape, and don't get much sleep but they learn to respond to orders without hesitation, train to be fit, learn the lingo of the Navy, and bond with each other in a way that that helps them trust each other to cover each other's back. You will be proud of her when she graduates. Blessings,
