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."

I got my 2nd phone call today from my Sailor, Ship 3 Div. 328.  He sounded good, said it's getting easier and 4 weeks left.  He is still glad he decided to join the Navy.  No regrets.  This makes me feel happy.

Last week I posted I had a writing party with my son's friends, fed them dinner and they wrote letters.  It was so much fun and I mailed them last week, so I'm sure he will get them this Friday.  I decided to take it a step further and created a event on my Face Book and ask everyone to send me a few words to my son whether they know him or not (1,517 friends were invited) and within 20 minutes, I had 8 letters sent to me.  It was friends from Jr. High, old work friends, ones I don't talk…
