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."

ktssong, thank you so much for inviting the KY Navy Moms to this event. It was wonderful and we appreciate so much being a part!

Ok.  Moms from Cincinnati attending the breakfast Thursday.  More info...First Watch Restaurant phone # is 513-721-4744 in case you get lost you can call.  Also meter parking on one side of road but there is a parking garage on 7th Street that you can park in which I recommend.  Also even though the restaurant is 700 Walnut street I called them and the entrance is on Seventh  Street around the corner.  So it is the corner of 7th and Walnut.  Again jot the number down.  I'll try to watch for you.

Ahh, but that I could make the 4th Navy week this year in my area--but out of traveling money and days.  Have a great time--post lots of pictures.   Hugs lots of sailors and get some of the Navy Mom Sandwich pix (mom in the middle of sailors.)

Ok.  I would like to tell everyone how awesome of a turn out we have. Right now there are 19 moms with sons and daughters stationed all over the place in all kinds of jobs in the Navy, Seabees, Nukes some in A school some in bootcamp some deployed and some about to be.  I get chills looking at the list and see the diversity.  Wow!!! And Lt. Sircy has Navco reporter and photographer coming.  Along with the Admiral and others.  About 6 of them total.  So we are going to have a great time. 


Next Thursday Sept 1 at 0745.  I will send you all the other details.  If I don't have your email address or if you haven't friended me do so because I want to do a group message from my page. 


Is anyone able to man a table Sat or Sun or both days next to the Navy Navy Similator and Suburban to pass out Navyformom magnets and brochures?  I will be out of town Sat and Sun seeing my Seabee but I'd like us to be represented.  It's been approved.

Are SR moms welcomed?  Would love to come if I can get away from work for an hour or two...close to my work (downtown).

Getting closer to the date.  Can hardly wait.  Ha ha.. little rhyme for all you moms.

Will send an update out later this week.

I'm sorry I won't get to attend. My son graduates from A school and then he will get to come home for two weeks.  I am so excited!!  I haven't received any info on the t-shirts.  Is there still time to order one?
Comment by ktssong on August 7, 2011 at 10:16pm
