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 Liz. Hope you are well. We're almost there! Have you heard from your hubby? I received one long call (30 min) a few weeks ago & then a call Friday telling me she failed a run by 40 seconds & if she doesn't make it on the retest Monday her graduation will be postponed.  She said she will call tomorrow and let me know what is going on.  She said during one of her runs (in the beginning) some guy kept stepping on the back of her shoes cuz she was not running fast enough. Would be funny if it was your hubby. LOL She said they are doing Battle Stations today. Hope that is going well.

I just sent a group message to this group with the dates I have.  It should come into your "personal email," not your email on N4Moms.  Give it a few minutes and if you don't receive it, let me know!  I will then send your dates personally to you.
