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."

My son is a crew leader in his "house" (that's what someone else called it). He mentioned a few guys in his letters and think it would be neat to  "hook up" on here with their loved ones if they are on. How could we do that (without names)?I think it's finally setting in at times that he has moved on and probably will not be home to "live" again. He's almost 21 and I'm still not ready lol. He seems happy and is enjoying boot camp according to his latters and calls so that helps me deal and accept.

Good Afternoon All! Wondering if someone could fill me in on the details of the ribbons I have seen referenced a couple of times. What are they for? How do we order them? Thanks!


Hello proundMom  The ribbons are worn during PIR to show support and pride for our soon to be sailors.  I have ordered 4 for our big event through la la ribbon queen.  You can see what products she offers on her website or just send her a info request. 

Hello Kyou10, I just seen your message to proud mom about ribbons to be worn during PIR I am interested in getting four of these can you tell me where to get them. 

So sorry I just saw your post.  My apologies.  You can order the ribbons from LaLa Ribbon queen.  Her website is

Hi Nikki. . .I heard from my son and almost missed his call too. I forgot to take my phone outside with me when I let the dogs out. Thank  God he left a message for me but he called me back. My son stated that the division 925 was doing well and looking forward to seeing their loved ones come PIR May 3rd.

I didn't receive a call but my son's fiance did. They talked for about 15 minutes and she said he won't be able to call until the Sunday before graduation...but that's not far away! Two weeks from Friday. Hang in there!

My son is a Crew leader in Div 925 ship 2. I would have been devasted too. I missed my sons first call :(
