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:

My son called me today to let me know that he finished P-DAYS.  He is now an E-2 and still glad he has made the choice to be a sailor.

My son is at bootcamp right now with 31 days to go :-) I look forward to those once a week phone calls (have had one since he left 10/3).

Hmmm, I should check in more often to see if anyone writes here.  But I am here once in a great while. My sailor is off in school still so we do get to hear from him about once a week. We always look forward to the after graduation visits. We have another one coming up soon. YAY

Seems like a very small group, but this is our home and I wanted to join and see if there are any current Moms out there :-)

Hi, my name is Julie, the mother of Joy.  She is a Sailor aboard a destroyer in Japan.

Hi, there! I live in Soldotna, on the KP. My daughter is stationed on the USS Normandy in the Persian Gulf at the moment. Will be home, hopefully in December, but you know how that goes! She has actually NEVER been to Alaska and wants to come here the minute the ship pulls in. I told her "Baby, I MISS you SO much, but Alaska in December is not the primo month to visit!" And she said "Mom, I don't care if I have to defrost my eyebrows in the airport restroom, swim across Cook Inlet or scale Mt. Redoubt during an eruption! I'm coming HOME! Now THAT'S the Alaska Spirit that I'M talking about! However, I think a trip to the Army/Navy store is a good idea BEFORE she gets here! LOL!
