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."

Informed delivery is an app that lets you know what mail is coming to your home. It is great to use if your expecting a letter or a package and you want to know if it’s been shipped or when you will get it. I’m so excited im getting another letter from Freddie either today or tomorrow. God is good.

Missingyou - Keep your cell phone on you at all times!  Even at the doctor's office, they sometimes keep a cell phone on hand to let the sailors call home.  And you've got kids coming from all parts of the US so you know they have all kinds of krud going around in the beginning.

I'm happy that all is well for your sailor!  I'm in Crowley, Texas.  :)

Comment by Missingyou yesterday
Our time for our sailors is approaching soon. This is the beginning of his 4th week. I’m not sure what they are doing this week but I know swimming is coming up and lessons on how to handle a gun is also coming up. My son with a gun is going to be hard to believe. He’s never handled one before so I hope this part is not too overwhelming for him. He’s an artist reserved gentle in spirit and at the some time head strong and determined to get any and every task done set before him. How about your goys have they handled guns before and what about swimming? Let me know.

I’m in Katy,Texas about 2 hours from San Antonio. We’ve been here about 13 years now. My son loves to sing and draws very well. That’s his art work right there. He is amazing and I miss him so much. He never gave me any problems while growing up. He wasn’t the perfect kid but he was and still is my best son. I’m sure you guys have great kids also. I know you have to because this is a sacrifice of there freedom they have chosen to serve. What better way for them to live their lives. To know that they chose to lay down their lives for another. I’m proud and honored not just for my son but for all the sons and daughters that will serve alongside of him. This is a brotherhood a sisterhood that will last for ever. Have a blessed Sunday to all my Texans.

WifeNMudder - What a way to take your mind off your son's leaving!  You are a hero!  God Bless you for rescuing your sister & her pets!

Tx Mom of Far Away Nuke and Mary.... Thanks so much! Tuesday was his Swearing In and I can already see a difference in him. While I knew he was nervous (I'm his Mom, so of course I knew!) he was also laser focused, excited and ready. He said that he would prefer if we not wait for the bus and since I knew that this would be particularly hard for me, I agreed and we left. I cried all the way home. But then we received a call from my sister in Houston. Her house had began flooding and her car had a flat so she could not get out. So grabbed some clothes and towels and other supplies and hauled it down I-45.  Over the next 14 hours we struggled, but managed, to find an open road to get to Katy, loaded her and her dogs up and then struggled, but overcame, to find open roads back to Dallas.  My mind and emotions were so occupied that when my son called at 12:55am I was almost surprised.  I had almost forgotten about THE CALL. We were still on the road so I put him on speaker and he was quite the little robot. It was kind of funny actually.

WifeNMudder - The Navy brought about amazing changes in my son.  He was always a good kid but had a problem with procrastination, time management, etc.  Not any longer!  He returned as a responsible young man.  They are doing something right up there.  :)  You'll find going forward that there's nothing more valuable than time spent with your Navy Son or Daughter.  I cherish every moment on the phone and the even more rare actual visit.  Good luck!

I sent my son a letter almost every day.  I included notes of what was happening at home along with paper-printed pictures of family pets and also cartoons that I found funny.  He said those letters really kept him going during boot camp.

Enjoy your time together. You are about to begin your experience as a Navy mom. Make sure you go to graduation it will be one of the proudest moments of your life. The time they are at bootcamp are rough, I cried like a baby the day he left. You will enjoy your experience as a Navy mom as you watch your sailor grow, mature and make you so very proud !!!!

Well, we've entered the last week at home. My future sailor leaves on the 29th. We finished packing up his room yesterday. Grandparents are coming in from Louisiana to spend some time with him later this week. Proud, anxious and emotional right now.
