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."

"Tammi, Join the USS Bataan group and ask for the ombudsmen number.  After you contact them they will contact your son to see if it is ok for them to send you updates about his ship. Texting and emailing usually work for me. LOL  "

Hi Cinder...How are you?  Just got back from a 9-day trip to see my son at Corry!  I drove his truck to him (along with his fiance') and have to say it was one of the greatest trips I've ever done...2125 miles and worth every second of driving! 

I believe you had asked how tough CTT school was...My son seems to be doing really good in his CTT class. It is tough but he finished middle of pack with his grades - either a 92 or 94%. He said the lowest score in the class was an 89%.  I have to laugh cuz this is a kid I could barely get thru high school and then he tested high on his entrance test! Figures...I always knew he had it in him!  He has finished A school and started C school this past week.  He will finish this on July 20 and then take 2 other short classes.  He is 6 year CTT so he did alot of the classified stuff in A school and now this is the maintenance part of the school and he said he likes it alot!  Has your son started school yet?

So sorry about the delay in your question! Would love to get together some time...we could meet half way!

Take care!  Kim

My son signed up for 6, how about yours?
At 11:23pm on February 10, 2011, Mayflower said…
I'm not really sure how he's doing. I've only gotten the 1 letter and 1 call. He usually muddles through, so I'm sure he's fine. But it would be nice to hear even a grunt in response to how are you doing?
