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:

Hey coltonsmom, I wanted to let you know that I can put your daughter on my sons list if you would like. Seth's dad can't make it and I remember you telling me she wanted to go. I don't know how late they can make changes to their list but it's sure worth a try! I could give him her name when he calls after BS21. Let me know. So excited!!

I think we're safe on the date. My concern is whether he is a grad and go? Not sure how many nights to book. My son will be 19 on Sunday. Oh, I wish I had an extra spot for her! Still waiting....but they say no news is good news! It sure would be nice to hear from him though.
