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."

Yes, please remember when you are posting you have to be on page 1 or it will not post!  If you find you are on a different page don't panic - just copy your post and then go to page 1 and paste it so you don't lose it (and have to re-type)!  The site is operated by NING and it didn't used to be like this but back about a year ago when we had all the problems things changed (and haven't been quite the same since!).  We keep finding lots of little "glitches" that no one seems to know how to handle ~ sigh.

Somehow I ended up on the wrong page and didn't realize it until my comment wouldn't post.

Anyway, from a page back.....

JayDee659, I know what you mean about the "next" step. My younger sailor was shocked to discover that all the studying/testing continues once they are in the fleet. A school is where the hard work starts, and after the pipeline it just escalates.... They definitely earn their bonuses!

Love reading all the support offered on this site!!!  Women are just amazing creatures!!!  So glad to be one!  Also glad to have learned of this site!!!  Yes, take it from one who was concerned about my son getting through Nuke Program, it is doable!!!  I was so impressed w/ the Navy's set-up.  They seem to know how to motivate these sailors; they set it up for all to succeed!!!  Areas that had been a challenge for our son were a non-issue for him in Nuke school b/c of how the Navy had the whole program set up!  ditto what the other moms have already written.  Blessings on all of you incredible moms!!!

Hi all - Happy Wednesday!

PattiP - Yes, Fiona looks like a little ballerina <3  She looks like she's having so much fun swimming around!

ProudOfK - wow, PIR on Friday - I'll bet you are just busting at the seams right now.  PIR is so awesome - enjoy!

melissa - yes the program is hard but it is doable!  You just need to be the biggest cheerleader for your son and keep the encouragement flowing.  There will be easy days and tough days (and more easy days and more tough days) but just remind him that no matter what happens, it isn't the end of the world!

Thanks again for the comments.  It helps to know that I'm not alone in all this and I have a group such as this for support.

@ ProudOfK, I cant even tell you all the emotions you will experience on Friday.  The whole thing is so great.  I still can't stop smiling..lol

melissa, there is a lot of "hurry up and wait" in the military. I can remember, though, leaving PIR weekend thinking I gave them a boy and they made him a man. That's what boot camp did. It's an amazing transformation.

The hardest thing for some of us is the sporadic communication. Before they start school it's not so bad but there may be long periods when you won't hear so much. They are busy taking care of business. Don't worry too much if you can help it. We keep our phones close and drop everything if they reach out. Keep the email and letters going. They may not always respond but they count on hearing from home. It keeps them going. For us, it's why N4Ms has been so important. We are here for each other when we need the support.
