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."

PattiP: wow, she is a cute BIG thing isn't she?
COTwin: Those AK photos took my breath away. I went to sleep dreaming I was there. What a great adventure for your son.
Allison: When in AK, you should check out the artist Rie Munoz, her art is at a gallery in Hotel Captain Cook. Her art depicts scenes like COTwin's coastal AK photo, Native Alaskan life etc. Check online.

Hi all - Happy Tuesday!

COTwin - Alaska looks beautiful!  I'm sure your son is finding peace there :)

J's/S'sMom - glad you had a nice visit - albeit too short. Fingers crossed that they will be there at the same time in the fall!

Patti - can't believe how big Fiona is getting!  She looks so cute swimming with her momma!

M'smom, congrats on PIR! One of the best navy moments for me. Glad you could attend. 

Patti, love that Fiona. So sweet. In reality hippos are not animals to mess with. They can be deadly even though they don't eat meat. It's hard to imagine sweet Fiona hurting anybody though.

Welcome new moms! Mixi, so glad you found us and that we are helpful. We're all just like you: moms of sailors. Nobody understands a navy mom like another nanvy mom. Don't hesitate to call out questions or concerns. That's how we all learned.

First of all, reading your convo's have been helpful to me. Thanks everyone! I found this site the last week of BC G6/16. It could've relieved so much stress had I known. I've already passed on the info to a new Navy momma.

M's mom - FT w/son last night. The waiting made him nervous as well last week. He picked up some volunteer shifts to fill the time. We were told to use the INDOC address still until... Being given some liberty just before the 4th, so hoping to begin soon after. Tell him to hang in there.

M'smom, my daughter wasn't big on waiting either, but looking back she was glad she had the time to "relax" and get a feel for the area.  My daughter sent me her address the first day, in fact she called me on my way  home from PIR to give me her address and a list of stuff to send to her!  The address is the same for all of them with the exception of the class number.  Ask him if he has a class number yet.

JayDee659, thank you! Just wondering. He had a meeting yesterday and we still have no address. He just doesn't like sitting around. He's already nervous.
Comment by J's/S'smom 3 hours ago

NancyJo that sounds like a wonderful Facetime reunion! So glad your son is home safe and sound.

CoTwin I can see why AK was such a draw--beautiful surroundings! Glad your sailor is back in port as well.

M'smom I think the class sizes have varied over the years, but 2 weeks is the average wait so it won't be long now and your sailor will be starting A school!

PattiP so glad you're back to 100%! That virus was a doozy!

Our sailor's visit was short but sweet. Both of our sailors should be back again for a visit in the Fall (hoping their visits can overlap a bit so they can see each other). It's always a bit of a let down when they leave, but at least we have some visits to look forward to in the Fall.

M'mom my son's ET class has 22 but I really don't know if that is typical or not. 

Comment by JayDee659 3 hours ago

M'smom, two weeks sounds about right.  He'll have paperwork to do and things to keep him busy.  He should enjoy the down time while he has it.  How did you like PIR?  Just hang in there, the time between schools only gets longer from here on out.

Comment by M'smom 3 hours ago
My son made it safely to SC Saturday.... Now he's just waiting for his classes to start. He said probably another 2 weeks? How many do they put in a class at a time????
