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 agree with Kim, eventually each sailor will have duty and get paid his regular salary.  It just takes time.

I wasn't aware of "no money" son was also on the Lincoln and now dry docked but he is receiving his pay.

They will put them to work doing something. It's sad that our sailors are even in a situation that we have to ask this question. I have a Navy wife friend whose hubby is assigned to the Roosevelt. (they have also quit working on that carrier now) He went out with the Lincoln last deployment and is leaving soon with the Enterprise. They get their sea duty in and perform their jobs even if it's on a different ship.

Hi all. My son just arrived in VA the end of Jan. He's in a barracks on the Portsmouth side. What is going on with the sailors assigned to a dry docked ship for 4 years and no money?

Wondering how the budget cuts to our military will effect our Sailors!? i spoke with my son before we found out about the Lincoln not going to the shipyard as planned.we were planning a visit my husband and i and my Sailor son told me he would need a month advance notice so he could have off,now im guessing he wont need so much notice. my husband is finishing up a job and will have 3 weeks off so we will be going for a visit:) crossing our fingers he can have off some time during those 3 weeks:)

IWooHoo!!!!! God bless all our military

Personally i dont like a weaker America. this will be a domino effect for many businesses ect...i also heard our military pay might be cut 20% of their pay. not liking the change.

lynn, my notification said it was from Julie OS. I think she just sent out a general message to the group.

Your Sailor will need to ask for time off in advance least mine did. From my understanding they will be very busy next week im not posting on here what the plan is but ... good luck and have a wonderful time:)

Alaina, once a Lincoln mom ALWAYS a Lincoln mom! I'm sure the Vinson moms will be nice but they won't be as awesome as us ;) lol (((NMH)))
