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:

Jessica's mom


I have a 16 year old son and have been trying to convince him the same thing about

the Navy.  He was into the Marines but he's not so sure of that anymore.  I think

when he talks to his sister, he might change his mind (hopefully).

Hi Jessica's mom


Just read your name about my daughter's first name.  Her real name is Arianna and she

goes by Ari.  I don't think it's the same girl.  She did write in her letter that she has been

making a lot of friends though.  She said she met girls from Hawaii, Texas, Missouri, California and Florida.  Is your daughter from any of these places?  She said her compartment has about 100 females in it.

Is that your SR's last name in the post on the 6/17 board?  If so, you will need to please delete it.  Absolutely NO last names are allowed on these boards...Navy security policy.  If that happens to be a FIRST name, then it is ok...although we advise that NO names of your SRs be used on this site.  The RDCs do read these posts and that connects any comments you make to your SR....not a good thing. Just click the "x" in the post box!  Only you or the group creator can delete!  Thanks!
