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."

Does anyone else feel like a stalker?  I mean before my son left I never even knew what time the mail arrived.  Now I know my postal workers life story.  I have never engaged in chats with strangers online nor did I know how to operate online chat.  I think the first message I got I froze and clicked offline accidentally.  Now I spend hours reading every post just to hear how everyone is doing. I'm not being nosey, but it's because no one understands what we are going through but each other.  I've searched for members in my son's PIR group, Ship/Div and now I'm starting to reach out to the ones going to the same A school.  Graduation is 1 month from today and I can't wait to meet so many of you. How I've changed in the past 21 days, I have gone from a mom not really knowing much about any of this to a boot camp mom!  I can't wait to see what I learn by June 2. I look forward to the moment I can say I am a Navy Sailor's mom!

I know exactly how you feel! Between this site, and the Facebook pages I joined, there is not much time left for other stuff (like work and sleep). But I am so thankful for all the information that is out there! I may be becoming slightly obsessed with finding out all there is to know about boot camp, PIR, A school. I can't wait until 6/02 to finally see him!

I'm right there too!!  Glad to know it's not just me.  At least I can say it has lessened SLIGHTLY, just slightly, since getting her personal call this past weekend. My daughter's PIR is 6/2 as well.  She is in Ship 12 DIV 173
