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."

Take care of yourself first and foremost. I hate headaches more than most anything. Especially migraines. I will keep you in my prayers. Usually takes me about a week to recover a feel like 'me' again. How do you think you did on your test?

Are you okay? We just wanted you to know that you were missed yesterday. Please let us know if you need anything - and how you are.
