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:

Those innocent eyes met mine as he entered the room, my heart was saying the time came too soon.

As he raised his right hand to swear in, it was so hard to control the tears within.

It's now your time to shine, you make me so proud and I know you will be fine.

Although you are leaving my baby and the next time I see…
