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."

USS Bataan LHD-5

Group for family members of Sailors who are on the USS Bataan (LHD-5)

Members: 137
Latest Activity: Apr 27

I decided to start this group to see who else may have a Sailor on this ship; or heading to this ship.

Granted, we may be a bit limited to what we can discuss openly online, but if nothing else, may be a good way to connect and network off-line as well.

Make sure to not disclose advance ship movements or other OPSEC issues.

My son is an FC2 on this ship.

Forever proud- Sorry, I just now saw your post. I don't think there are very many spouses in this group. I was referring to underways being extended and/or ship communication being cut off. And the pre-deployment craziness in general... All that fun stuff :p

Hi Goat - i'm not a wife, but a mom. What kind of frustration are you experiencing? Or have you worked it out already?
Comment by Goat on April 13, 2016 at 9:58pm
Any other wives in this group dealing with underway frustration?

I'd like to get to know you better.for a chance to discuss an important issue? & we can share great experiences together, I'm sorry if i am embarrassing you i don,t mean so i think you are a nice person & there is something important i want to share with you, Therefore we request you to kindly contact us to E-mail address ( ) not in this site because i am a new in this community and i don't visit this site often,

If it was a legitimate person they would post to the site, and why would they send me an email. BEWARE. Love to all.

My email is if you would like to communicate. I can take a photo of the old homestead for you. We shouldn't block up this posting with personal stuff. Stay in touch.

Son has been in for four years and is leaving. It can be lonely for a sailor without his family surrounding him. Does he have a car?

Comment by Joe&NatesMom on February 9, 2015 at 12:31pm
So true...taxes was the main reason for the move...I know he misses it, and we miss having the house to stay in when we visit NYC, but like you said, it's changed a lot.

We are on Spruce Lane. The neighborhood has changed over the years. We are considering going south.
