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."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

LOL, I UNDERSTAND!

Blondie this is a never ending winter!  We have a freeze warning and a high wind advisory.  Yesterday it was 80.  On Monday it snowed here yet the lawn company was at our office mowing in the snow.  Whatever.

Beautiful morning here in Ohio.  Snow is falling, ground is covered.  Wind chill is in the teens but what a Wonderful sight!  I tried to upload some pictures but having trouble again. Will try when I get off work .  

Hope all is well.  Navy Mom Hugs

Tweetybird,

Yes, those feelings are real and we understand how you feel!!  Currently I have a son deployed and my daughter, although her deployments are different from those on ships.  She's gone for a month and home for a month.  I never know where she's going until after the fact.  Just know you are not alone, we are here to help you through this.  Is this her first deployment?  I saw a newspaper yesterday that mentioned the Truman leaving.  Hope you find all those groups you are looking for and that you get her address.  Stay in touch here also and let us know how she's doing!!

here are a couple more things I learned re: sending care pkgs across the waves: be sure to include her address inside the box, place it and the items in a trash bag just in case the box becomes damaged or is exposed to weather/water. Just to be safe I used packing tape on all the edges too. These boxes get stacked & loaded onto a pallet before being shipped. Taping the corners and edges will give your pkg a little more strength.

Comment by JayDee659 on April 16, 2018 at 3:22pm

Tweetybird, I've reached out to the NukeMom's.  There's probably one of them on the Truman who can help.  Hang on.  I'm getting ready to leave my office for the day but I'll keep an eye out and let you know.

Comment by Tweetybird on April 16, 2018 at 3:22pm

Oleander how do I go about contacting her FRG? And to top it off my other daughter is going the Marines going crazy her!!!!!

Comment by Oleander on April 16, 2018 at 3:18pm

Hi Tweetybird! I know exactly how you feel! My daughter deployed in July and came home in February. All those feelings are still very fresh for me! 

Yes to USPS - here's the info: 

Call 1-800 610-8734 to order Military Care Kit which are free to you. I believe you can order as many as 10 kits per request but that's a LOT of boxes. You should get 6 flat rate boxes per kit (2 lg, 4 medium - 2 different sizes). Mine arrived very quickly but they say 7-10 days. I believe you can also pick them up at the Post Office but you should check.

As JayDee says, definitely contact your daughter's ombudsman or FRG , you'll need to make sure you have her exact address.

Sending hugs!
