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."

My Son leave on July 11 also. I think I am done crying for now.... we are less than one week out, and I seem to be doing ok. Hopefully you are doing better now as well.

I have been doing OK...I can't believe it's next week already!  I haven't cried yet.  My eyes fill up a little when I think about it.  I think I am saving any tears for after he leaves.  I am so proud so I am focusing on that feeling instead.  It's hard.  

My son leaves on July 13, and it's getting harder and harder.  We have figured out something that helps, however ... whenever I start getting emotional or he see's me getting misty he just says "Mom, I'm still here" and it snaps me right out of it.  I shouldn't be missing him while he is still here!!!!  

I have been missing mine too and he is still here. I hug alot!

Liamsmom, I left info for you on your My Page.

God Morning, Not sure what time it is where you are but I am in Phoenix, AZ and it is 9:24 am very hot and Muggy. My son swore in July 5th 2017 and then was off to his new Journey in Great Lakes. I have to say I am very proud of my son. I just received his box of clothes yesterday and then on top of that his Graduation pictures. I am still just waiting for his next call home. But I was able to write him a letter.

My son left on July 11th, I am very proud of him but it is hard not hearing from him. 

My son left on the 11th and I still haven't gotten the box. Tessie have you gotten the box yet? Yesterday it seemed like everyone was getting the box and the form letter. I want to write to him so bad
My son left the 11th too. I got his box Friday but no letter yet!

My Son also left on the 11th. I missed his box on Friday. They should try to re-deliver today. I have been writing him everyday, even though I don't have an address to send them to yet. It seems to help me, I feel like I am talking to him.

Nicknukemom, I left info for you on your My Page.

Tessie, check your My Page.
