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."

Here's is a picture of the tshirt we all want to get for our meet and greet. We need to know who is interested in getting these? Need to know how many and what sizes. Need to know by 6pm central time Tuesday so we can get them by Sept 11th. Price will depend on how many we order. The more we order the less they will cost.

i would like a large one.

Thank You

You can place an order on your own through the website Mention order number #2310322. Tell them you would like to place a NEW order based on this shirt design.

So just the plan to wear these at the meet and greet at Sarge's?  I have missed most of the convo about when to wear...Anyone know?  Thanks for a reply!!  And looking forward to meeting everyone next week!!!


So welcome!!!

Lynda-were you able to find someone to buy my shirt? I don't want you stuck without the $! I will gladly send you a check for mine if need be. I sooo...wish I could have been there. My heart was with you all. At least I get to see my SR on Tuesday!

No, there was 3 ladies that ordered and didn't pick them up. I've sent messages to them. But, I'm sure their with their sailors. If I don't get a response by Tuesday I think I'll make an annoucement on our group to see if some one who wanted a shirt wants to buy it now.  Two are mediums and one is 2x.

Do you want your shirt? I would love to send it to you. I'm so glad everything worked out. We missed you.

My sailor left today at 10:30 am. Only had half the day on friday and a solid hour with him at airport today. I had a harder time today seeing him leave than at boot camp. Probably because he's farther away.

Let me know about the shirt. I'll send a friend request and we can touch base with message.


Hi, I know the activity has decreased on our group site. But, I have some t shirts left.

If I don't get a response by monday afternoon from the moms who ordered them. I have 2 mediums and 1 xx large left.

Let me know if anyone is interested in them.

Thank you

Lynda, I got my tshirt and really want to thank you for doing that.. and incase you missed my post, my sailor " LOVED IT"...

Dauber's mom: You are so welcome. I'm glad everyone liked the shirts.


I sent you an email. I need your address to send your tshirt. Thanks

Friend request me and send me pm with your address.
