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 am a new Navy Mom from NY with a NUPOC daughter heading to OCS mid July... I am an emotional wreck

Moehrle, Sorry I can't help with flight info, we drove.  You might want to join the OCS Moms group - and if you're on Facebook, the best source of current information is a FB group that is set up for each class as they arrive - Search for Navy OCS Class XX-17 Friends & Family.  Also, you should consider joining the NUKE Moms group here - It's a very active group and that will be the next step after OCS in the Nuke pipeline.

Thank you for the information.  What airport is best to fly into?

Comment by ITgal on March 17, 2017 at 4:39pm

Hi Moehrle,  I don't remember a limit to the number of people that could attend OCS graduation.  There was a limit on the number that could attend the 'Hi Moms' reception the night before, due to space.  The candidates have to pay for that also, so that created limits as well.

Hello..  Does anyone know how many people are allowed to attend the NOPOC graduation ceremony? 

Comment by T's momma on June 16, 2016 at 3:33pm

My son was medically disqualified offically two days before he was to leave for OCS.  Needless to say this has been a roller coaster.  Thanks to all of you wonderful moms for helping me prepare myself for his leaving and for being prepared for big bumps in the road.   Good luck to your daughters and sons, I will be praying for them.  I will be leaving this sight since I am no longer a Navy mom, but I will never forget all of you and your supportive comments and I am grateful for your loved ones who are allowed to serve our country.   Please pray that my T finds a good job in the civilian world that will make him happy.

Hi Melissa, My daughter Hannah signed in Feb as well. They must of been there together. She still has two years of school to go

Comment by T's momma on May 28, 2015 at 12:11pm

Hey moms,

I am new as well.   T signed on with the NUPOC program in Feb of this year.  When he  graduates with his undergrad in Biomolecular Chemical engineering next year, he will leave for OCS.  How often to they have classes and sessions beginning for OCS?  Just curious if we will have anytime with him between graduation in May and when he has to report to RI.  I am trying to mentally prepare myself for his life changing adventure and am curious about OCS and how many of us will be allowed to go to his culmination ceremony in RI.  I noticed that PIR said 3-4 maximum.  That stresses me out a little cause our immediate family is 5 members other than our officer.  I would hate for some of them to miss it, but I understand the security issues and contraints.

I am a new NUPOC mom with a daughter still in College looking for any helpful guidance

Comment by dbs55 on June 22, 2014 at 2:57pm

Is there any mom out there with a Son or daughter in Power school. My son just started and finished preschool and has been in power school for about 2 weeks now. Would love to hear about other mom's  stories about their child's experiences.
