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."

Event Description

As part of the Atlanta Navy Week (Oct. 11-17, 2010) celebrations, we are excited to schedule a dinner for the Navy for Moms and Dads with RADM Michael Yurina and other Navy Officers. This will be your opportunity to have your questions answered by RADM Yurina.

The dinner is set for Scalini’s Italian Restaurant and you can order off their Early Dinner Specials ($9.95 plus drinks, tax and tip) or their regular menu. The restaurant will provide individual/family checks for us.

If you plan on attending the dinner, please RSVP directly to me via email including your name and number of people attending. We are limited to 70 attendees. Also, to show how proud we are of our sons and daughters in the Navy - or soon joining the Navy - I will be putting together a slideshow of pictures of our sailors. If you’d like to have your sailor included, please attach your favorite digital (“JPG” version) picture of your sailor in uniform in the email. Also include: his/her full name and rank, current location (base or ship name) and ONE sentence describing what s/he is doing. Please make sure you provide parents’ first and last names and town/state so I can list you as “Proud Parents are...”.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Trish64, we perfectly understand. We're sorry to miss the opportunity to meet you. Look for future local "meet and greets" in the Atlanta area. Don't hesitate to contact us on Navy For Moms if you need to talk. Enjoy your visit with you daughter.

I cannot attend because I am in CA with my daughter, it was a year since she saw her 2 year old son. I am happy now to know there are other people I can community with while she is away for 4 years with the Navy. I am a grandmother and it is difficult somethings for her son to not see mommy.
