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 email, phone, chatrooms, and message boards, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

I'm just curious if anyone has a son or daughter that is currently in THU.

My son graduated from boot camp on December 16th 2016.  He found out two days prior to that that we was going to be put in THU and not sent on to A School in Pensacola as originally planned. He is being held back because he needs a medical waiver signed.  It is frustrating for him and for us to see him go through this.  He had knee surgery over a year ago and completed everything necessary prior to boot camp that was needed..... Doctor releases etc.  However, it appears that somewhere along…

Don't delete ME!!!

I don't remember if I sent this before or not.  Please don't delete me!  I'm definitely a lurker not a poster.  I have a submariner on the USS Dallas and everything I have learned on here has been a lifesaver.  Mostly a mind-saver!  Kept me from going into total panic mode more than once!

Over a year now

Hello all, just wanted to come on here and say Hello. I haven't posted anything in a long time. It's been over a year since my daughter graduated boot camp. I have gotten a lot better at being an emptynester. But I still have days where I miss having her around me. I'm happy that she'll be home for her Christmas leave. :)
Well, hugs to all. Stay strong & positive! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !
