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."

Congratulations!  I'm so happy for your "Sailor" and yourself.  Jealous you're on your way, but my turn will be in 3 more weeks.  Love him, hug him, and cherish all the moments you have with him!  Have a great weekend and tell us all about it when you get back!  So happy for you!
