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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

Ship 11/037 I can't believe it's only 19 more days til PIR!  I know these last 3 weeks will be tough ones!   Praying for these guys and girls!    They are all sick and have so much to go through yet!    I was reading comments about the itineraries etc.   I wish they had a form letter they sent out about that told the details of what info they need, what the sailors can and can't do and which airport they  need to use etc.    They just don't know how difficult it makes it when we have no communication but 1 letter a week ......

I think like you about the form letter. We are in the dark about what paperwork they need and if something is wrong or missing I don't want anything to go wrong. And then if we do call up there our SR will pay for it. I'm so excited only 19 days to see our son. After talking to him on Sat. I don't know who's more excited me of him. It was really good to hear him though, even being sick he was in great spirits and was getting ready for his next inspections,hopefully I sent all the correct documentations.
Take care,
I hav sent our sons travel plans to the email address and still have not gotten confirmation that they were recieved. I thank the ladies that gave me a phone number to call but I do not want to call up there and then have our son pay the price. The deadline is tomorrow though. I do not want to take a chance and have something go wrong when we are coming home. I forwarded his flight ticket from the airline and the googled driving directions for his trip to Charleston. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

I sent our travel plans via e-mail yesterday, I received a confirmation e-mail today. Yippee

Hi jangles, I sent our sons flight information and the googled driving directions for both ways of travel. We are not staying over night anywhere. Is this the same info that you sent? I just want to make sure everything is in order for his leave,

Mommamac, I sent our sons Sunday night by email and have not gotten a confirmation yet. I mailed them last week also. I am going to resend them tomorrow if I do not get a confirmation today. I think it is odd that people that sent them yesterday are getting something back already and we have not. I to do not want to call for the same reason. Lord give me patience and peace.

No confirmation yet, I am going to do the same thing and resend them in the morning, but if nothing by tomorrow afternoon I will probably break down and call someone. I do not want anything to mess up his leave a d it be something that I did. This has been the hardest thing that I have ever had to deal with as a parent. God has been my only saving grace.

Nothing received yet! :(


Jangles...what email did you use! I still haven't gotten a confirmation  this is the e-mail that I used DeniseMatt'mom...

This is the same email that I sent our information to also. Not getting any confirmation is making me crazy.
