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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

Kat, r u in sf bay area?
Comment by KatG on August 30, 2011 at 1:12am
Hi Susan. I share your frustration. This is my son's first deployment and he keeps telling me to ask the ombudsman and Amy, the ombudsman tells me that my son is point of contact for all information. We are fortunate to be within driving distance now but still 8 hours away. Hopefully, someone will tell us what to do! I trekked his welcome home banner across country last week. I am really looking forward to seeing him. We last saw him at Christmas. I cried the entire way home from the Union Station in D.C. when we sent him back to A school.

Hopefully you will get to talk to your son soon Susan.  They have dates now so he should be calling or emailing you very soon to update you.  I am very excited to finally have my husband home :)

Hi Susan,  my son started on USS Chancellorsville late April this year.  When did your son start?  Are you going to SD for the Home coming date?
Comment by FirstSailor on August 13, 2011 at 3:21am

Susan, you are welcome.  This group is not active very much.  I get more updated information from this group USS Ronald Reagan Families.  HC day is counting down!  Which ship is your son in? - Michelle
