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 fellow Hoppers!!!  How exciting to know our recruits are moving forward in thier journeys.  My son is on ship 03, any others?


me too! I had a panic moment yeterday after my daughter read it and it went missing.. I found it a short time later after panic had set in. My poor husband came home and I told him about the letter and then went to get it for him and it was missing.... I was like where did it go????? I was so relieved I nearly cried when I found it.

Hi Hoppers, my son is in ship 03 div328. If anyone has any advice on where I should stay please let me know...THANKS...

Have you checked the Navy Lodge yet? You can Google it for the phone number. We booked it. It seems close with good rates.

Hi yes my boy is on ship 03 div 328 also!!!!

Mine is in the same ship/div too!

My son is on ship 03 div 328 as well!

I made my reservations today.  Staying at the Residence Inn.  Anyone else know where they are staying yet?


So glad to connect with everyone in the same DIV!!! Can't wait for a call & letter. From what I was told by a vet Mom ours prob got to write for the first time Sunday so I thinking if its mailed Mon maybe a letter Weds or Thurs!!!

My son is on ship 3 division 327  - I can't wait to hear from him!


My brother is also in that Div/ship. So far we have the I am alive call and one more personal letter.

Hi everyone, 

My son is Ship 03 Div 328  All I have received from him was the form letter on his graduation date August 30th.  Did anyone receive a letter yet written by your child?  I write my son everyday and mail it every 3 days.  I had a writing party with his friends and fed them dinner then they wrote letters to him.  I also put a event on my Face book to invite anyone who would like to write letters to our sons/daughters in this group and share encouraging words.  The over whelming response is unbelievable. I copy and paste the messages to the letter I'm writing.  I just posted this event Tuesday and yesterday I mailed out 6 pages.  About 10 messages on each page.  WOW...I'm impressed how many people care about our Military.

Proud Mama here
