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 ladies, is there a meet and greet today. (im up at 200am checking the sight) I hope I haven't missed anything. I loved our last meeting in Seattle It is so nice to see other moms and be able to talk. My son just left last week back to his ship and I am going through serious withdraws. Its hard to have him home for a week and then let him go, but I wouldn't want him not to come... it is so bitter sweet. I dont know why this time I am having such a hard time with him leaving back to his ship. Would love to get togher if its not to late. Im in Puyallup.

Hello All!
I am just waiting for a phone number from Cora... was thinking maybe Brooklyn was in Seattle at the AMX moto cross... If not I could pick her up today at the base! Can't wait to meet everyone!
Comment by AngieFromWA:BUDS Mom/ HM alumnus on April 18, 2009 at 1:34pm
Geesh, I'm so pumped and my mind is so filled with "to do's", I can't write straight, think I left a word or two out of every other sentence below!

Well, Molly, since you and I will both be on the road and Susan is stationary on the West Side with a Sailor at Whidbey AND the one with the Rescue Sailor List, I vote she be the contact person. Does that work for you Susan and Cora? We just want Brooklyn to to feel Navy Mom loved and never alone up there. :)

Just e-mailed all my info to Rebecca. We're official! Safe travels to you too Molly... and Ms. Diane and crew! Next stop for you two ...SEATTLE!!! :D

Susan did you get info from Cora ? I am heading to town now and was going to try to connect with Brooklyn, but didnt want to overwhelm her with a bunch a moms calling. Let me know -----
Comment by Susan mom to Niko on April 16, 2009 at 12:36pm
Cora... we lived in Puyallup until a couple of years ago... You would not recognize just how big it has gotten in the last few years... more and more houses and people moving in every day! Let me know when you arrive in July! We will have to have lunch together!
Comment by Susan mom to Niko on April 16, 2009 at 12:35pm
