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."


Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

GROUPS: Listed by Name of US Naval Ships (actual US Naval vessels in service)
 Looking for other Navy For Moms members with sailors on the same ship/boat?  

Here is a list in alphabetical order by name of ship. List doe NOT include groups with fewer than 3 members and/or groups which have been inactive in the last 8 months. Cllckable links have been provided. Just click on the name of the ship. Please post a comment if I missed your sailor's ship (with a link, if possible).  Please note that if your son/daughter is in boot camp, his/her barracks are named after ships. The groups listed below are not Navy For Moms groups designated for barracks (please see groups associated with PIR dates).  Edited & updated Feb 2017 by BunkerQB.

This list refers to the REAL thing - with sailors, guns, etc.

I have listed 168 groups associated with ships plus the above 8 groups. If you have a group that is currently active and would like to have the link to your group included on the above list, please post a comment with the link and/or send me a message.


Checked the information on the ships as they are listed with the Naval Vessel Register.  You'll find it quite interesting.

I looked thru the list and you forgot to add the USS Cowpens CG-63

Will be happy to add Cowpens. It's easy to start a group and fun too. 

@Doreen & Robin, after you add the group, post a BLOG and announce that you have form a new group.  I would post on Forum under General Category as well as here in this category.

If you preferred, I (or Emma) will be more than happy to post an announcement of new "ship" groups for you. Happy to be of help.

BTW, my son's boat does not have a group either - since it's a sub - he is very guarded as to information. I did find a Family Readiness Group on Facebook (private group - only members see comments). So you might want to find out if there is a FRG for your boats. Just type in "USS Cowpens..."

I didn't find a group created for USS LaJolla. Why don't you create one since your son is on that boat. Post the link here and I will be happy to add to list.  If you know there is one already, please post the link here.

My son is in the USS Triton.  Could you add this one?


Mary from McKinleyville, CA

Mary, I just realized your son is in boot camp. The USS Triton you are referring to is Ship 12 at Great Lakes RC - it is one of the barracks. Please go back several pages and look at the drawing and info about the barracks being named after ships. The real USS Triton has been decommissioned.

velvetlace & Patti, the list I compiled are of existing groups already created. I had not included groups with fewer than 2/3 people and those that have not been active for 8-10 months. Please use the search function to find if a group already exists. Click on Groups, input the name of the boat your son is on (eg. USS Triton) and see what comes up. If there is an existing group but I have not included it, please post the link here and I will add it to the compiled list. If there is an existing group but it has been inactive, why don't you join it and post a comment - maybe you can resurrect the group. If you don't find an existing group, you can start one - click on +ADD (after you click GROUPS). Look at some of the other groups to see how others have done it. When you click on any of the boat on the above list, the groups main page will show the creator of the group.

Good luck.

GOD. I almost had a heart attack!
I have a big family down in SD. I am so sorry I don't have time this week to make an impromptu trip to SD when your girl is there. She and I would have a great conversation about her mother's sense of humor! I love the Fish Market (restaurant) down there. Now you'll have to explain .............
I had seen it once before but had forgotten. I have to remember that. Thanks


I just created this group to help locate other loved ones

Great, I'll just added this to the list. Get the word out - you should post a message to some of the other groups - A school people, nuke people, a blog - anything - good luck.
Ahhh.. thanks for adding the Cowpens.. was just going to send the link, I had forgotten to do that when I made the group. Again, thankyou!
