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!!!!! We are down to the single digits!!! 9 days!!
I know right...I sooo can't wait to see my boy!!!
Antone heard anything on Battlestations yet????
tomorrow I think. I'm following " I'm a Sailor" calls on facebook. and the last div was 320. yesterday was 900s and today was 317, 18, 19 and 320. fingers crossed for us tomorrow!!!!!
They will be going in tonight or tomorrow. Can't wait for the calls!!

The ribbons are to wear to PIR and Meet and Greet as well if you want. They are a great way to show your support for your sailor and they are a fantastic way to recognize other Navy for mom members and they make a great keepsake. It is not too late to order but you don't have a lot of time left. Just click on my name and send me a friend request and I will send you the info.

It's hard to believe in one week some of you will be on your way to PIR. I bet you thought that day would never get here and I am positive you are getting very excited to see your Sailors. I have all the late orders on the ribbons finished and some were mailed today and the rest will be mailed in the morning. I only have one or two that I am still waiting on payment for. If you ordered late be looking in the mail in a few days for your ribbons and if you have not sent your order or payment to me let me know asap. We are running out of time. Thanks to all of you who ordered the ribbons; I know you will wear them with pride :-) Let me know if you have any questions at all.
Wow!!! I got the call, he has been set back 2 weeks! I am so heartbroken! He passed everything with almost perfect scores and slipped up on weapons!! He said 1 other person was set back also. Prayers to all!!
Sorry mom. Wonder who the other person was? :-(
I don't know? He was really angry with himself. With his brother already in for 2 years I think he is worried about what he is going to say.  I told him it was a small mistake and to hang in there!!
I know its hard for you both. He will get it next time im sure he was nervous, expecially if he wants to impress his big bro.  Prayers go out.

Here is a big I'M SORRY to all of 323. I think I'm the one that gave to wrong BS info. When i asked my SR he said friday, but diannep sais they don't do friday nights. So she thought he must of ment last night. I guess not. Again I'm real sorry. I'm sure we are next up so keep up the prayers and I'll explain to my SR not to give Mom info unless he is 100% sure.

Don't worry at all about this!  You wouldn't believe how many are told different the same div!  Must depend on which RDC they ask!  HA!  We do the best we can with the schedule...and most times, we are right...but sometimes we are wrong.  AND...there have been times when the schedule changed last minute...Navy's doing. problems.
