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."

Janice, is he planning on becoming a Nuke?
Comment by Janite on September 21, 2017 at 12:35am
My son is a junior, mechanical engineering major. He has always wanted to go subs,and that was reinforced both last year during the sub part of CORTRAMID, and this summer when he spent 17 days underway shadowing an enlisted man.

Just curious what year your midshipmen are and what direction they are planning on going. Has that changed over the course of their NROTC time?

Comment by Glenni on August 19, 2017 at 10:23pm

Janite, that is wonderful. I know you are so proud of him. Pamb, that sounds like an exciting summer! I know !that his dad must be very proud, too!

I have to admit that I was hoping to hear from my son - at least  a text - but I know that NSO is intense!

Comment by Janite on August 18, 2017 at 8:17am
Congratulations! My son is helping lead NROTC orientation at his college agin this year. As a shy kid, it was a wonderful way for him to get to know classmates at the start of his freshman year. Now as a junior, his closest friends are still fellow midshipmen.
Comment by Glenni on August 18, 2017 at 12:16am

We just got home from dropping our son off at NROTC NSO. I'm really excited about this new step in my son's life! It's been an interesting path getting to this point, but I feel certain he is right where he is supposed to be.

Comment by Janite on June 17, 2017 at 12:26pm
My son is NROTC at RPI. They do have a color guard occasionally at football games, but it is a volunteer thing. He has been required to help with collecting tickets at a game or two. Then again, Rensselaer is not exactly known for its football. Traditions must vary from school to school.
Comment by Glenni on June 17, 2017 at 11:04am
Do all NROTC units do "Freshman flags"? My son says he doesn't need football tickets because he will be part of the flag ceremony before the game. He's going to Auburn.

Thanks helenp.  The one in Flight School will be NFO (back seat driver -lol)  Yes, they are twins (identical) and their interests align.

Comment by helenp on June 12, 2017 at 12:20pm

Congratulations 2017Commission  I was a non-military Mom also. NROTC was a great fit for my DS too. He commissioned in 2014 and is now a Naval Aviator flying the P3 Orion. He just joined his new Squadron at Whidbey Island, WA. Flight Training is a lot of work, but he is very happy.

I  see that you have two commissioning at the same time. Are your daughters twins? My DS is an identical twin. His brother was not interested in military.
