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 think that there are quite a few of our aviators that have gone through the process. My son's was prior to signing up. When he was 14 years old, he broke his leg at the ankle and has 3 screws in it. Initially, the Navy told him that there was no way that they would allow someone with "hardware" into the military - let alone aviation. We live very close to regional airport that is used both by the Navy and Marines when flying into Denver. We actually live in the landing pattern and when we heard jets coming over the house, we went over to the airport. It was a couple of Marine F18's that flew in. Mike talked with the pilots and told them what the recruiter said. This is while he was in college. They encouraged him to explore it further and see if he could get a medical waiver. It took the last 2 years of college to do it, but he finally got his waiver in 2005. During OCS, he was told that his blood pressure was a bit high. They asked him if he was under any stress. His comment was that he had just met his DI for the first time just before going in for his physical. Yeah, he was stressed.

Mike's last flight was before we got there. He told us that his wet down resulted in his life vest inflating. He had taken it off and put it on the wing but it fell off and got wet. It is good to know that it doesn't take a bunch of water to inflate these things but the supply office wasn't real happy. $$$$ you know. By the way, a couple of years ago, Mike told me that the Navy yell was HOOYAH but I have never heard anyone use it. OORAH is much better, but I'll never tell him that ;o)

Speaking of pictures, once I get my pics downloaded from my trip last week, I'll post one of Mike standing next to the plane with his name on the side. It is currently being overhauled, but it does have his name on it.

Hi everyone,
So I am learning all the time also. The RAG is the replacement air group. Andrew will be training in Norfolk to replace a squadron on a carrier that will be losing aviators through a variety of reasons. ( finishing commitment, becoming instructors etc.) I feel like he is in our own backyard from Texas to Virginia- and his little sister is in college in PA so they are both happy about that. I think he will be feeling a lot better once SERE's is over and he his home for Christmas. He is driving up to Maine Sunday. Please remember all of our aviators as they go through this difficult training simulating "downed aircraft and capture". Thank you all for your support. Although I am not a frequent writer I enjoy learning from all of you.
Leslie,-- you have a great sense of humor!!
Jane,-- I'll talk with you soon.

Hope you all have a chance to see your kids this holiday season! Due to the delay in the Truman deployment our son and his family will be here at Christmas. He was supposed to be at sea this holiday season instead he'll be home, two Christmases in a row!

Leslie, I had to laugh at your comment about the 53. When Mike was in CC he was taking off one day and there was a Sea Stallion out in the field off the runway. He started his take off and rotor wash from the Sea Stallion almost flipped him over. The next thing that he heard through the radio was the tower asking the Sea Stallion to move off to the other side of the field. It got his attention - that's for sure.

I added some info on the winging gift site - I just can't figure how to get it over here. Thanks

I think I got the floating frame at either Michaels or Hobby Lobby. I think that it was a document frame.

I meant to say between 2 pieces "glass". Oops.
