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."

Same here!!

Me too!  Glad to see I am not the only one here early.  I guess that means I am "on time", right?

My son enlisted last July 26.  I'm just now getting into the group chat because it's getting real all of sudden. I have my countdown to RTC going and today we have 110 days to enjoy our son being home.  He leaves in July.  Looking forward to the journey with all of the other families.

Same here!

Excited to join this group - my son leaves July 2017 as well!

Finally getting to the point where it's becoming real!! My son is scheduled for BC in July.  Looking forward to meeting everyone here.

Really excited to be in this group.  Son leaves July as well.  He signed his papers on his 18th birthday in August and thought we had forever but now its getting real and emotions are all over the place.

My son is leaving for BC on July 25.  Wishing everyone here the best times ahead.

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

My son will also leave in July.  Bittersweet because he is my youngest, and I just found out that his older brother is also moving out of state the same month.  I'm going to be one lonely mama and drive my husband crazy!!!

Hello Fellow Moms!!  My son leaves July 20th!  Anyone else's kiddo leave that day?  I have started getting very emotional when I think of him leaving.  I have been there every step of the way during his Navy experience so far and I've been fine, but now I've started getting sad.  I'm probably driving my son nuts!  Any advice or similar experiences?

Mine leaves July 25th.  We are currently planning his graduation/going away party and I'm starting to feel extremely sad.  I try my best not to show how difficult this on me in front of him.  I do a lot of crying behind doors, at work, in car, pretty much everyone.  I think it's natural as you are so proud and excited for them but sad they are leaving.
