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:

Hi Alisha, are you planning on going to the airport and sitting with your daughter Saturday morning?  I don't know my son's orders yet, but I am planning on going to sit with him if everything works out, and thought we could visit a bit if you are going.  :)  Also, are you going to the meet and greet?   And... you had mentioned sitting together at PIR, that would be great.

I'll bet they do, or they will by the time Battlestations come around!  My SR is a VERY social girl.  It's not hard for her to get to know people.
