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."

So, apparently there actually is a screen door on a submarine. My son found that quite amusing.

WLHats, I am hoping to run into you at the airport as I arrive. My plane lands at 5 ish.

We got a tour of the boat. Thankfully, we got Mrs. H down and up the ladders safely. I got to see a destroyer through the periscope. The sub was bigger than I expected, but I told my son afterward that I was feeling closed in after only a few minutes. He said it was weird at first, and he had some strange dreams, but that one gets used to it.

We also got to see his room at the BEQ. Think college dorm with some years on it. Shabby chic but good enough.

Mynda- my son did a ride along on the Wyoming a couple of years ago - he loved the crew and wanted to transfer to that boat!

Congratulations Linda! You look sooo proud!! What a handsome young man, and following in big brother's footsteps, how proud you must be!! Thank you for sharing such a lovely photo at such an amazing moment :-) I will always have many fond memories of my son's graduation back in June 2013. Enjoy your time together, God's blessings to you both!!
