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."

10/7 must be a great day for graduations! My son graduates from BESS (Basic enlisted sub school) in Groton CT.   He graduated from culinary school the end of July and has been in CT since.  He loves Groton and hopes to be stationed out of there - hopefully he will hear this week.   Wow almost nine months since PIR - time sure does fly.   I hope it flies when my son is out on a submarine for months at a time.      Love and prayers for all!!

Hello everyone, hope you all had a great summer. My son is graduating October 7, 2011 from A School..he and his wife and baby are doing great now that they are living together on base. He is moving up in rank on Oct. 14 -- I'm so proud of him. I'll never forget PIR 1/7/11

Sorry, I've been MIA :) life is so busy now with two kids...and especially without my husband's help :( I had my baby girl at the end of April.  She's growing up fast.  Even though she has to wear hearing aids to help her with the quiet sounds (ie. "s", "ch", "t" and clock ticking); but she's doing great.  We found out that it runs in both my husband's side and mine.  My husband will be graduating his A school in October and still don't know where he'll be heading to next. 

I'm glad to hear that everyone else is doing great. Now that I'm a stay at home Mom, I'll have more time to stay in touch.

Our sailor is over half done with Power school in SC.  I guess that could also be half done with the 2 year schooling  before gettiing on a ship.  Doing well, we are looking forward to seeing him in Dec for graduation.

Hello everyone!

I hope that you had a great Mothers Day. Its been forever since I have stopped in and I had a lot of reading to do! It seems that everyone is headed to Japan. Congrats to your Sailors! Mine is still in school and will be for about another year. We talk daily by skype and its like he is here. He is adjusted and really getting into the military life. Im hoping to get to see him in June for about 2 weeks. The family misses him a lot. This is my last week of school and it was a great run but boy did it keep my busy. I will go back in the fall and take a full load again. Soon you will be able to call me "Chef". LOL! Its good to see all the progress and all of you are doing great. We have come a long way since boot camp..... 

Take care everyone!
