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."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Ok so right now the command for the Lincoln has put out a post that they do not want packages sent to the ship - I guess they are getting inundated with people wanting to help and they are concerned about getting a bunch of boxes that are just being randomly sent. They are trying to figure out a way that will best handle the situation.  Once that is confirmed I'll pass on the info. 

I think they were surprised at how many Navy moms/families would want to get involved!

Comment by Sue-Pillowcase lady on November 4, 2019 at 3:19pm

Heads at Ease will be mailing pillowcases for everyone.  I know that Maryellen has already posted about it.  I am not sure that the address should be on here.

The Lincoln's deployment has been extended again.  The information below is from the Ombudsman of the Bush

Hi all one of our sister ships is in need. They have been out to sea since April and haven’t had a port call in a very long time.....

 ⚓The USS Abraham Lincoln was scheduled to return home before Halloween. They have already been at sea for over 8 months and have been extended again until sometime spring 2020.

 As you can imagine, this news has been hard on the Sailors and they could use some love to get them through this seemingly never ending deployment. They are all feeling extremely down about spending Thanksgiving and Christmas at sea.

 Their families have put out an SOS to all they can reach, to help boost their morale and let them know that people from all over think about them and care, they are asking for care packages and/or holiday cards be sent to the ship.

 Do not feel obligated to participate, but if you are compelled, the suggested care package items are:

 Holiday decorations

Toiletries (for women too)

Beef jerky

Gum

Non-chocolate candy (chocolate rarely survives the shipping process) Games (cards, Uno, old school stuff) Used video games (they have a variety on consoles onboard) Used movies (DVD’s) Books Cards (especially from kids) Tuna packets Seeds (sunflower in shells and other) Girl Scout cookies Energy Bars Peanut Butter Fruit snacks Goldfish crackers Store bought snacks Stocking stuffer type small gifts All the other usual care package items....

 I recommend using flat rate boxes to reduce shipping costs or send something via Amazon Prime.

 Please send me a private message on here if you would like the address to send a package.

Oh Shacha! I noticed we were friends on this site.Well, I hope he enjoys his deployment on the Lincoln!

Thanks for reminding me. :)

John and Yvonne - Hi, we actually spoke a while back in the Eisenhower group.  My son will actually deploy on the Lincoln instead, so I left that group for this one.  His squadron is based in CA and won't deploy until spring.  Thank you for the offer, but he won't have free time in VA.  It's very thoughtful of you to open your home to our sailors.  Merry Christmas 

Comment by John and Yvonne on November 27, 2018 at 1:44pm

Shacha,

By the way, one of those sailors is also in a squadron...what sq. is your son in? 

Yvonne

Comment by John and Yvonne on November 27, 2018 at 1:41pm

Hello Shacha!

Welcome to this group. :) I'd like to introduce myself and my husband to you. We are John and Yvonne and for the last 18 years we have  opened our home on the weekends and holidays and invited sailors to come over. We get together on Saturday eves and we feed them and play board games, watch movies, do outdoor activities(weather permitting). On Sundays we sit down to a family meal with homemade bread and dessert. 

You can check our page on this site to find out more about us.

We have a couple of sailors who come over who will  also be deploying on the Lincoln. We would love to invite you so over when he gets here.  I can pm you our cell number so he can contact us .

Yvonne and John

Comment by Shacha on November 26, 2018 at 9:36pm

I hope this group is still active!  My AO son will detach soon on the Lincoln then deploy a while after that for many months on his first tour with his squadron.  Hoping this group will keep me informed.  Hello to you all!
