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."

First Hope your Mothers Day was special and filled with the memories of when you first became a Mother. Each and everyone here, in my heart, AS an extra special mom. You endure much of the unknown and are strong Ladies. Special Big Hugs to you all. Navymom4e, I am so there with you, your picture is beautiful, He is so handsome!
Tracy, I understand the pride but the heart ache comes first, it does hurt - it is hard, my friend I am here for you, I am in tears knowing how hard this has been so far and how much harder it gets.
But little by little we are stronger for this. Our growing pains as , our children, are making their own lives, is one of the hardest parts of being a mother. This experience as a mother/wife is making us stronger as we all share in the pride of these amazing young men and women and look forward to all of the rewards of their hard work and the adventures and the places they will see! BIG NAVY HUGS TO YOU ALL!!!!
