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."

Yes parents can visit. They get privileges in stages.  I would wait till he can go off base with you. It's usually a few weeks after arrival if they all "behave" one messes up and they still all pay.  How long has your child been there?  My second child will be there next week.
1 1/2 weeks, seems to not be aware of dates yet.....
What ct rate is he/ she?

I made a slide show for Corry Station, it's in the Cryptologic section, but the pictures 

maybe a little small for you.  I'd post the map here, but I'm in Europe now an have

no access to my desktop cpu....  But this slide show should give you a good idea

of what it looks like...  Just click the share button on the show and you can make it

larger, then click on the picture you want and it will stop on that picture.

Hi Jill,

My son has been at Corry since March 5th. You are allowed to go on base as long as you have your ID. Make sure that you tell them that you are there to pick up your son. Do you plan to make multiple visits, or will this be your only visit for a while? If it is your only visit, you might wanna wait until phase 3. I know you are anxious to see your sailor and I totally understand. We went when my sailor was in phase 2 (over Easter) and my sailor even made the comment that we should have waited a couple more weeks. It ended up working out because we went back Memorial Day We have been 2x now and are going again this week to see him graduate A school. If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer what I can. Craig also has a CT group and is very knowledgeable and quite humorous at times. so come on over.

thanks sunshine,

apr\proximately how many weeks should we wait, before visiting?  we will also be taking his car to him.  how long is A school, usuallly?  he is anxious to get his new car, but he has watch for the next 3 weekends, so we know to wait that long, at least........
