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."

Good Morning all, my recruit left Nov. 28, we are from south TX waiting on his box and form letter. Its been challenging to not know how my recruit is doing, but I am putting him in Gods hands. Hope everyone has a blessed day.

Hello! My son left November 15th. I’ve already received his box and the form letter. We are from Central Texas and I can’t wait to hear from him.

Hello Texas Moms! I am a new Navy mom. My son leaves for BC on Dec.14th. We live in Liberty Co.(southeast TX). My son is on cloud nine about this decision he has made and has been preparing for a year. His excitement seems to help ease his Dad's and my fear and anxiousness. One minute we are so proud and excited and the next that wave of despair rolls over. His job will be a Gunners Mate so he will be in the Great Lakes area for a good while. Any and all advice is needed. Thank you Moms

Good morning moms I hope you’re having a great week. As the time passes my anxiety gets a little less. Just knowing my son has made it this far is a blessing to me. In his letters he says I got this and it makes me sleep so much better. Only a few more weeks to go. What a great time for our sailors to graduate we should be truly grateful God has let them go this far. Thanksgiving is truly a time to be grateful for what God has given us and a time to share with our families. So Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families. Have safe travels to and from your destinations this holiday season. God bless you all.

Missing you-this whole journey is a rollercoaster of emotions, right. BC changes them but it also strengthens our bond with our children. Nothing else matters but knowing they r ok n that we'll see them at graduation! God bless.

Missing you, At boot camp they learn to work as a team. They prepare for battle stations which is an emergency on a ship. They learn about weapons, but are not given one to keep, I don't believe. My son was an instructor, and I don't remember him ever mentioning that. They do get paid, and they never starve. Many of your questions will be good to include in letters to your recruit, or you have things to start a conversation when you talk to him!

Good Sunday morning I have a few questions for you moms. Do they teach hands on combat in boot camp? Do they get to keep a weapon of there choice? Do they get paid in boot camp? What kind of food are they eating? How do they pick what school they will go to and is it all based off how well they pass? Have a great day today. God bless!!!!

I finally got my a letter from my son it was great. He passed hie swimming test the first round and now he’s shooting guns he likes it. He’s passing everything and will graduate on time. He misses his music but he’s still singing. Thanks for letting me vent I’m good for now. I did miss his call he was frustrated about missing to talk to me and forgot he could have left a message but next time. Thank s again moms I’m back on track my mind and heart is good life is good and in a few weeks I’ll have a sailor to brag about.
