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:

You are correct that their BattleStations will be that Tues....calls coming in on Wed afternoon.  That make sense since 277/278 will be the last to go.

My daughter ran into those same problems when she was in boot.  Please tell your daughter it will get better once all the girls learn to accept one another and work together as a team!!!

Thanks for the friend request!!  How is your daughter doing in bootcamp?  Good luck to her, I hope she fulfills her dreams!!!  I was stationed in San Diego, years ago (we won't discuss how many!!!) and I loved that city!!  I was at North Island.  Would love to go back and visit some day . . . .
