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."

Hi moms, here's a new video from Rear Admiral Robin Braun. Who is she you ask? RDML Braun is our spokesperson. This site is very near and dear to her heart. She's a mom and served as the Navy as Deputy Commander at Navy Recruiting Command in Millington, TN. She's been in the Navy for 27 years, currently in the Navy Reserve. RDML Braun is a pilot and has flown the Navy's big aircraft like DC-9s and EC-130Qs (for her full background, see the link below). You may see more from her from time to time at events and on the site. Several of our members have had a chance to get to know her. Hopefully, as this site continues to grow and our events spread around the country she'll be able to join in again.

This video is part of a series. Next to come is one dedicated to A/C School. Hopefully, it will give you some insight so you'll know what your Sailors can expect in their next training position. Look for a poll to hit the site in the next few months. We'll be asking you for additional video topics.

I have a group of kids here at school who would like to write to deployed military in all branches.  I was wondering if there is a place I can go to get addresses for deployed military mail, ergo "To any sailor," "To any soldier,"  etc.

I wish I would've known about this site long ago. I also wish I would have seen this video before my daughter went to MEPS. I would have known exactly what processes would go on there. This was a good video that spoke to us as mothers with sensitivity. Thank you

Hey ladies - I'm not sure why this is happening. Try visiting and sending a note to them. There is a link at the bottom of the page to contact them - you fill out a quick form. They can work with you to see if it's your browser or a bug!
