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."

I didn't learn about the mole skin or two socks until the last week of BC :/

ncdeb Oh haha I guess I missed that part lol! I totally don't blame you! You may also want to send mole skin or tell her to wear two pair of socks. My daughters poor feet were beat up pretty bad and this kid has played sports her whole life. She had huge blisters all through BC.

Praising God for a heart that matched this incredible Navy Mom. Lifting her up to our almighty healer for a full recovery back to health that she may continue doing His will. In Jesus unmatchable Name, Amen.

Praying for the Navy mom!

I have been out of touch for a bit here. Esti'sMom, I hope your daughter heals quickly!  Wow Blondie, your girl is no quitter! Kudos to her!

MoparMom - I went through the same with my daughter. She was initially in a push division and when she got ASMO'd they put her in a regular division so the 2 week training set back equaled 3 week set back in her PIR.  It was really tough going from 2 weeks left to 5... but she made it through! Your daughter can too! Keep encouraging her to keep her chin up and focus on her end goal! I'll say a prayer for you both too, I know how stressful it was!

Hello again!!!

Sorry I've been MIA for awhile, we were in a campground for several days with no internet!!!  I have a lot to catch up on so bear with me!!!  Hubby and I also celebrated my birthday while in this dead zone - I sat in a small local restaurant having my birthday dinner while trying to read all my birthday greetings on facebook!!!!!  Anyhow - - - 


So sorry your daughter has had this set back.  I understand how frustrating that can be.  You have to continue to be encouraging to her, as I’m sure this is so disappointing for her as well.  I would just try to find the silver lining in this and try to stay positive for you and her!!  Blessings to you both!!!! And yes, it is a roller coaster for sure!!!!

Esti’s Mom,

Hope your daughter continues to heal completely and quickly!!  I’ve had stress fractures myself and they can hurt!!!!


There is nothing wrong with being prepared!!!  It seems many of our girls suffer from this problem and I’m sure it’s because of the boots they have to wear!!!  They ought to supply boots to the deppers to get used to them before they have to go to boot!!!!


Wow, sure glad your girl made it through bootcamp and is now healing.  Hope all continues well for her!!!
