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."

So since I wrote "How I've Changed" I have become a little less obsessive.  I have stopped stalking the postal employees, I don't spend hours online searching for more information and I'm not scared to chat online or send a random stranger a friend request.  I spoke to my son on Saturday, most of the call was him laughing at me because I was trying to impress him with the  Navy lingo I have learned.  I think I used some of it incorrectly, but he just humored me.  Because of this site and the wonderful Mom's I have met on here I was able to ask him questions that he was interested in answering, it was probably one of the best conversations I have had with my son in a long time.  Thanks to the moms that inspire me.  Many of you we have never chatted, but I read your posts I feel your joy and your sadness.  Thank you I have almost completed my time as a boot camp mom and I am so excited to be a Sailor mom! Just 17 days left! Hooyah!
