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:

Profile Information

A little about me:
Hi! My name is Tonya. My boyfriend left for basic on October 7th 2011 and I attended PIR on December 2nd 2011. It was an amazing experience and it truly made my boyfriend and my relationship stronger. We have been together for a year; however, been friends for 2 years before we started dating. Before he attended Basic, we were already in a long distance relationship after both graduating from Penn State in May. My boyfriend is now currently in A School in Pensacola, FL.
I am here to support my
Spouse/Significant other
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
