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."

God Bless you too Theresa, my sailor has 4 more years to go as he spent the first 2 in Nuke School, and then when on deployment he re enlisted.  He is in VA and will be married soon.

Yes, time has gone by very fast and to look at our sailors of 1 year moms is such a wonderful feeling. Keep our family safe and Sailors Too. I will never never forget the experience with you all and support. To know that we were not friends but linked together because of a cause of love and support. I believe that will always be a friend no matter what. Happy Blessings to us all 2012.  Our sailor is graduating from C school now in San Diego. WR Ranch  Wilson and Renie

This has been a long year, but actually, it has went by quite fast. So many different schools and new adventures. So many new worries. I thought boot camp was bad. My son is doing his SERE training this week. I won't get to talk to him for a week. I don't know how I survived boot camp. Well, I made it then and I can do it again. He has matured a lot in the past year. I am soooo proud of him.
