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."

Tina, Yes, they do get time off after Power School grad. Our son graduated in Nov. and he had a choice to take leave then or Christmas. We were there for 5 days at graduation so he chose to come home for Christmas.

Dan;s Mom--If you can get to Goose Creek at Thanksgiving, try and get into Foster Creek Villas ASAP! We shopped at Sam's two years ago, started telling our son to invite anyone he wanted over for dinner. I also invited some of my N4N Mom's to call their sailors. We had 13 for dinner and it was awesome! Let me know if you are interested and I'll give you my hints.
This year we did the same for Christmas, and fed sailors (and one Air Force DEPPER visiting) 3 times over the week. Thank goodness we had picked up charcoal the day before as the power went out. It came on an hour before we served, so we finished up veggies, etc then.

Hi Kathy, Your's is the first report I've heard from a prototype grad - do you have any idea what portion of the graduates were there? I can understand your reaction to the comment about "hard work", the guy was spot on for the most part though. For most being a nuc in the fleet is harder work than the training. The main exceptions are boomer sailors (other than about three weeks of refit before getting underway, and shipyard periods), and carrier ELTs. I see your son is on the GW in Yokosuka; our shipyard has a large workforce there for several months of work every year supporting the ship. I'll probably find myself there for a week at some time in the next few years.

You know, I am going to go out on a limb here, and I would say if you can afford the time and cost to come for your Sailor's graduation from A School, then do it. It may not be the most impressive, but it is a huge accomplishment, nonetheless. To support our young adults in their career paths and to be there in person to share this first step is as important as celebrating their other milestones (little league, report cards, high school/college graduations, marriage, etc). Certainly, if the travel distance and time away from work and/or cost is too much, that may be different. But if it's possible, then I would want to be there so my son knows, and sees, my support of his life choice. My son has just arrived in GC and hasn't classed up yet, but we will certainly plan to attend if at all possible. I agree with Kathy in that in each level of their training, our nukes are indeed working hard, and each graduation is a HUGE success! Just my thoughts... :-)

my3sons, Our sons car is registered in California. We have an every two year smog inspection requirement but we have a form he can sign when the car is not in California this regulation is waived until and if he returns to stay in California such as assigned to a base here. I'm sure Texas has something similar.

I posted the following comment on Mr. Da Busch's blog on availability of meeting kits.

See the EVENTS tab on the menu bar. Just hover your mouse over it, a drop down menu will appear with the words "Meeting Kits" - click on that. It will take you to their page.
The following text appears on the page.

"Hey, Moms! Our Meeting Kits are no longer available for request but we still have a few things you can download to help make your event successful. Thank you for your interest and for all of the effort you put into your events!

Click here to check out the flyers, contact cards, and name tags that you can still download for free!"

If you click HERE, it'll take you to a page with downloadable flyer, name tags and Contact cards.
That is it. NO balloons.

On you profile, You said, "I am the Strategic Marketing Plans Manager and Influencer Campaign action officer for NAVYForMoms." I thought Navy For Moms was just a website and Campbell-Ewald actually owns the site. At least, that is the official information provided on this site. Please click on ABOUT US on the above menu tab. If you have just been hired by Campbell Ewald. That is wonderful. One more person I can complain to. LOL.

my3sons - I'm pretty sure that states that normally require vehicle inspections with registration renewal waive the requirement for their military personnel serving out of state.
Comment by smbjboyd on June 17, 2010 at 6:48pm
Just wondering does anyone have a sailor in Class 1031M? My son is in that class.
Comment by Kathy on June 17, 2010 at 5:25pm
my3sons--there is a rule on the travel range (i think it's about 400 miles) from base. if he wants to travel further, all he has to do is fill out a leave chit (he will also have to provide a mapquest showing where he is traveling too)

also--you can keep your license/registration in your home state. no need to change when the military moves you every few years. same goes for military spouses.
