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."

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.

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

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.

My son Nick graduated from Clemson University with a BS in Mechanical Engineering in December 2010.  He leaves next week for OCS in Newport.  He'll then train to work on submarines in Charleston.  I've picked up a lot of information about OCS on this site, but still have some questions.  Assuming Nick doesn't "roll," when can I expect him to graduate?  Is it usually the Friday of the 12th week?  I have heard most people arrive for graduation on Wednesday late afternoon and stay until Sunday.  Is that what you did?  Is your LO able leave OCS at that time, too?  Thanks!

My son graduates from OCS 9/10/10. My son will be on a surface ship.
Comment by dlouise on July 12, 2010 at 3:32pm
We are trying to decide how long to stay in Rhode Island after OCS graduation. I assume they get the whole weekend off.

Hi Barbara:

Yes, my son did nuke school as enlisted. He just finished up in August and is in the process of applying to officer school. I don't know when he will hear on that. My understanding is he will go to Officer School and then go back to Charleston and do the nuke school as an officer. Where did your son go to Officer School? Did he just graduate from college? You will enjoy Charleslton. When you go, let me know and I'll tell you about the places we went. There are so many things to do there!

Hi Barbara:

I was just curious, my son has finished nuke school as of August, he has applied to officer school, but in the meantime is on hold. Did your son do officer school in college or is he just starting the nuke program as an officer? Charleston is a nice place to be for awhle.
