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."

ShoeLover, my daughter just completed Prototype and is on the George H. W. Bush.  I sent you an email last night.  Let me know if you can't find it.  There are so many ways to leave messages, sometimes I miss them!

SailorMoon, thank you!! :) In the beginning, I was fairly sad on and off. Now it's probably more tension. I'm so excited for you... your daughter's on her next journey.

JayDee659, so did your daughter just complete her A school?

Comment by ShoeLover 23 hours ago

SailorMoon, that's great to hear!! I'm pretty excited.  Did you order a copy of the ceremony CD?  Do you get to sit close enough to get some good pictures?  It's so awesome having this forum to get the real scoop.  Thanks!!  :)

Comment by SailorMoon yesterday

My daughter's PIR was this past Friday! What an absolutely amazing ceremony!  So lucky we got to attend. She left for A school early Saturday so we didn't get much time with her but every minute was such a blessing! We all noticed the changes in her.  I told my hubby and son she now has "Sailor Swagger"  ;)

Esti'sMom - hang in there! I seriously would cry for any little thing while she was in BC.  It wasn't always because I was sad, I think I was just so tense all the time I needed the release! 

Comment by JayDee659 yesterday
ShoeLover I sent you a friend request. Please feel free to ask away. I don't want to overwhelm you. There's lots to learn.
Comment by ShoeLover yesterday

JayDee659, thank you for the info.  If there is anything else you feel would be helpful, I would greatly appreciate it.  

Comment by JayDee659 yesterday

ShoeLover, yes she can wear the Baby G Shock while in uniform.  I believe they can have a fitbit if it's black but I think they can only  have one thing on their wrist???  

You can look up NNPTC, Goose Creek, SC on Google Earth and you'll see the barracks west of the Rickover.  Upon arrival your daughter will most likely be put in a room with another sailor.  My daughter was lucky enough to be put with a young lady who'd been there awhile.  She showed her around the base and was kind enough to get her some immediate supplies at Walmart.  The barracks are kind of like a dorm room, they share a bathroom with suite mates.  Yes, she'll have plug in places for her phone and whatever else.  I'm sure they can wear make up, not sure if it's an earned privilege or not as my daughter does not care to wear it.  And yes, she can have her own underwear and running shoes :)
