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."

Hang in there Mom1997!!  It is very hard during the bootcamp days because you go for a long time before you get to hear something.  And all us Moms do is worry and wonder!!!!  Keep sending him letters and when he graduates you'll get to see just how much he's grown into a mature brand new sailor.  Your heart will have a hard time holding all that pride in!!!!!  Sending you cyber hugs to help you get through  {{{ . . }}}

Soon, boot camp will be just a memory for your sailor SALTY, but a great foundation to begin his adventure! ** Well said Baker!

The Blue Candle is an effective way to remind us that our loved one is in the Navy. Ours is an electric blue candle that reflects off a picture of our son's Boot Camp picture. That was 4 years ago and it still rings true for us. It brings our attention to it every time we enter the room. A prayer, hand salute and "Have a Good Day!" One Day at A Time!

Our Blue Candle is Glowing for All Our SR, Sailors, Families and Friends!

We light our blue candle when we settle in after work (around dinner time) then blow it out at "lights outs" - 10 p.m. - for us, it symbolizes another day he made it through basic. Helps to feel connected a bit. No news is good news...
