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."

Specific information on this policy change will be provided in the coming days and weeks.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your support.

My sailor informed me on when the ship hits Everett. His leave has been approved, however; its on the same day he comes to visite me. He is such a dare devil and I know he wants to come visite me really bad but, my word, did I not know in a million years he would book a flight to see me the same day he hit Everett. Is that possible? Have anyone of your family members come back and left the same day to visite you guys or doing it now? I trust him on his actions, but I just need some clarity from you guys! Thanks in advance!!!!

My son is exactly the same.  I am meeting the ship in Everett when they arrive and we're flying home together.  Enjoy your time with your son!
Awww Im so happy someone else is doing the same. Because I was so afraid he may miss it or I don't know. So have you guys booked your flight already? "He's my significant other" : )

My husband and I are going on the tiger cruise with our daughter. Her leave starts the day we get into Everett and she insisted that I book our flight home for late that evening.  I said but your dad and I want to see Everett and Seattle and her response was "Mom, I only have a to be back in Everett but such and such a date and I don't want to spend it in Everett.  I want to be able to go home and spend it my family and friends."  So I did as she wished and booked a flight for late that evening that doesn't get us back home til the next morning.  But it's what she wanted.

 

Awww how sweet! So, you guys are going on an over night flight? I think he is as well. The phone lines are down right now so all we are doing is emailing each other back and forth right now. Thanks for the "extra" info.

wow< that boy is homesick!

 

I don't know about the homesick part but he does misses his lady. : ) His family and I are hundreds of miles apart.
Yes we're flying out the day after arrival.  I booked flights when he told me that he'd be on leave when they arrived.  He wants to spend as much time at home with family and friends.  Hope all works out for you and your sailor.
My son is doing the same!  He's landing in Everett and has his flight booked that evening!  Our kids rock!!!!

COULD SOMEONE PRIVATE MESSAGE ME WITH AN ESTIMATED DATE FOR ARRIVAL IN EVERETTE? MY NEPHEW WILL BE COMING IN AND I SURE CAN'T GET ANY INFO OUT OF HIS EMAILS! IF IT FALLS OVER A WEEKEND I MAY COULD FLY OUT BUT WE ARE SO SHORT AT WORK, WE CAN'T TAKE ANY VACATIONS! YOU KNOW, BUDGET CUTS, HIRING FREEZES, ETC. ETC!!! THANKS SO MUCH!

Hi, can you forward me the infomation you requested to me, the time they will be arriving in WA. My significan other signal is down and can't get in touch with him right now. Thanks in advance.
