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."

christian,

I truly understand how you feel.  I have gone through my oldest son leaving home for college and then my second son left for the Navy 4 years later.  Leaving for the military is so much harder because we just never know when we will see them again.  I also find it is so much harder when girls leave for the military as I went through this with both of my daughters.  Just this past weekend the hubby and I went to VA to visit the middle son and his wife and 3 year old daughter.  We had a wonderful time and got to watch our son go across the stage to receive his college diploma!!  He's been gone from home since 2003 but it's still hard to say goodby.  This one is especially tough because my son is leaving soon for a tour to Afghanistan.  So trust me, I totally relate to the crying in every state from her back to Ohio!!!!  Come talk to the ladies on the group page.  Many of them feel the same way you do and can let you know you are never alone in this journey!!!!

And you can talk to me any time you need to!!!  I'm always here!!!!

christian,

I see you recently joined the Moms of Daughters 2 group and I want to welcome you!!!!  We are a friendly caring group of moms and are always willing to listen, share and help each other whenever or wherever we can.  We have Moms who have daughters in all phases of their Naval careers and we understand the concerns and anxieties new moms experience.  Please feel free to join our chats, we love talking about everything from work, family, weather - whatever. Plus the joyful and anxiety filled journey of being a Navy Mom!!!  Let us support you when you're missing her, lend an ear when you need to vent, and celebrate with you when you want to brag!!  There is usually someone on every day, so we are a  pretty active group!!  We look forward to learning about you and your sailor!!!  I am originally from Chardon, Ohio.  Left right out of high school, enlisted in the Navy, but then moved back for several years in 2003!!!  Again Welcome Aboard!!!!!
