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."

Moms/Dads/Families with Nukes in Ballston Spa, NY

Wanted to start a group for moms, dads, and other family members that have Nukes currently attending Prototype in Ballston Spa, NY.

Members: 166
Latest Activity: Feb 14

Thought I would start a group for the families of sailors stationed in NY for Prototype. It will be nice to chat about what is going on with our sailors whether it is good or bad so that we can support each other. I have connected with many people on this site but it is always nice to meet others that are going through the same things together. Also if you have had a sailor in NY for an extended amount of time then you can help the new ones just coming in on what to expect.

boconavymom, congrats to you and your son! My son is also graduating on Jan 29th. Unfortunately, we live in Washington State and will not be able to attend. There is a mom on the NukeMom page that says she is going. I've asked her to take pictures of my son for me.

Excited to see my son on Jan 13th for his supposed grad date of Jan 15th.
But I now bought a ticket to see him Jan 28th thru the 31st for his new grad date of Jan 29th too. Hope it doesn't change again! :)
Any parents attending?

Welcome Donna!  This website isn't as busy as Nuke Moms but it was very helpful during my son's stay in BS.

Comment by DonnaEricsMom on August 11, 2015 at 4:41pm

I all!!  My son will be heading to BS in the next few weeks.  He's at the end of his Power School classes and graduation is just around the corner.  He just let me know that he will be going to BS, so I thought I'd get a head start on my reading.  LOL

FYI - I added a discussion above about Prototype coins for BS if anyone is interested.....

By the way, loved Saratoga Springs!

Anyone have a Sailor leaving BS that has some furniture to get rid of?! My son is moving into an unfurnished apartment and might be interested.
