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."

Dear Michelle,

Please remove your post. Here is the section of the Navy For Moms Guidelines that your post violates.

• Don’t Solicit for Products, Services, etc.:
Advertising and promotions are allowed ONLY on your profile page. You may not use Private Messages or Chat to advertise unless members specifically request information. No individuals, groups, or businesses may solicit any project or purpose external to the site within the Forums, Groups, or Blogs.
This includes, but is not limited to, the following:

• Products or services you are selling
• Asking for signatures, money, gifts, or donations either for yourself or an external cause
• Work-at-home businesses or opportunities
• Job opportunities or resumes
• Charities and charitable causes or fund-raisers – even Navy-related
• Promoting your own Web site/blog or a Web site or online support group which you represent
• Promoting an entry in a contest

Dear Moms, Wives, Fiancees, Girlfriends (Anyone with a loved one in the Navy or other branches of the military),

I am 64 years old. I have been around not only in years but in business of successfully earning a living. There are scams out there. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. There are no get rich quick schemes that work. Hang on to your money. Get a job thru normal channels. Save by doing without "luxury items" - learn to do without. There are many way to earn extra money. Learn a skill. Many scammers are cloak in veneers - respectable jobs, church goers, friends, neighbors, volunteer organizations. You hear about them thru a friend of a friend. If they guarantee a return on your money that sounds so good, that you can't pass up - walk away fast - they are after your money. Get rich schemes want you to sign up for their program - that is how THEY get rich.  Pyramid schemes, Ponzi schemes - they all need fresh blood (money) to pay off the upper tiers. Don't get involved.

Take care, everyone. BQB.
