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."

Anybody else?  :)  

Hi Gayle, My son is Ship 13, Division 314.  Looking forward to 10/3.  

Hi Gayle! We are Div 314.

Good morning, it's nice to meet you Holymac.

My son is in Ship 13 Division 313.  

My son is also on Ship 13 how are you doing?

Hi Jenni, I'm doing well, thanks for asking. He is our youngest. It's a little weird to have such a quiet house. He will be getting a niece in November. Sad that he won't be here for that. I am constantly wondering. Wondering what he is doing, wondering how he is doing, wondering what he is eating, if he can sleep, etc. I hope it's not always going to be like this. I sent two others away to college and I didn't do this with them but could talk to them so that's made a huge difference.  

How are you doing?

Oh my gosh he is our oldest, but I feel the same way I so worried all the time!! Is he ol is he keeping his smart mouth to himself lol I finally got my first letter and I cried the whole way through lol is it always like this? My son is ship 13 but division 314

I missed a phone call tonight. I'm not sure if 314 called too or not.  I remember when daughter left for college, 3 hrs from home, she *couldn't* call for about 3 weeks. We texted daily. She eventually told me "mom, I would have come home if I heard your voice. I couldn't call.  Maybe your son is feeling the same. I know it's hard to accept but may give some perspective if that's how he is feeling.  Tell him in a letter to "CALL ME NEXT".  lol  Maybe he will.  :)   I'm not sure how many they will get. I don't expect any more though until after next week. Next week is hell week and they will be busy. That's just a guess though. 

Gayle who is hoping you get a call soon

Hi Gayle well we have 20 days left I am getting so excited! Will you be attending graduation?

My son is also in Ship 13 Division 313
Mine also!
