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."

Hello fellow div 007 & 008's I have a son in 008 we are from Calif anyone else?

Hello!  Yes.  I have a son in 008.  We are from Maryland.

My son is in 008 as well, I was very excited when I was able to talk to him on Saturday

Yes.  He called at the perfect time.  His sister, brother, myself and my fiance were all there.  I was able to put him on speaker phone and we could all listen and take turns speaking to him.  Then he was able to call his older brother and wish him a happy birthday.  His brother told me later it made him cry.  It made our weekend.

Unfortunately I was the only one home, my husband was very upset that he missed his call as was his brother.  But, as you said it made my day, and I was able to record the call with my cell phone so his dad was at least able to hear his voice.

I'll have to play with that feature on my phone. He will probably call at a time when not everyone is around.  It would be nice to play it for others.  Time will go by fast.  I know he's learning a lot he said.  He's in charge of PT.  He's very excited for the final test.

My son told me he was charge of towels. I'm wondering if that means he's in charge of doing laundry. He loves doing laundry, I know that's strange, but so do I. He could also be joking, not sure cause he has a very dry sense of humor. No pun intended.

That's funny my son said he was in-charge of laundry as well I wonder if they are together?

My son specifically said towels, and there are a lot of towels! Your son is probably in charge of all laundry. They probably have a sheet guy and a clothes guy too.

my crazy son is in charge of cleaning the heads(aka bathroom)  funny thing is that was his chore at home.

My son is in 008 as well. We are in AZ. It was so great to talk with Sat., I feel so much less stressed this week!

hello my son is ship 13 div 008
