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:

Same here on the mailman.  they said 2 weeks, so we have about a week to go.  I find myself wondering all the time what they are doing right now.  i really miss him, but i am also worried about him.  i have heard from many people that this is the hardest thing he will ever do.  oh well, just keep on praying.

Did you find the link to "follow them"?  Petty Officer Duram said will will be able to track where they are.  do you know anything about that?
