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:

Hello Redwind and Welcome. CO Native here.  Where in our great state are you?  I will also say we are a fairly quiet bunch on here and yes the FB group is a little more active.  My Sailor has been in for 3 years now and may or may not be home for a visit between duty stations at the end of the week!  Nothing like Navy planning!!! ;)

Redwind, There is a Colorado Navy Moms group on face book too. Where in Colorado do you live? I lived there for 11 years but am now in NC. Left a week after my sons PIR. Still have my younger son Woodland Park.Miss Colorado very much. Welcome

Just moved to CO.  Hoping to find other local Navy Moms for help and support.

Still a Military Mom and would also like to stay on. Would love to meet for coffee. I too don't post much. One son staying in and one getting out.

I will always consider myself a Colorado Mom, even though I no longer live there. When my sailor left for boot camp we were still living in Colorado and visit family often, but not enough. My sailor is in Hawaii as I type for the anniversary on Wed Dec 7.

I am from Grand Junction as well but we make it to Denver several times during fall and spring for soccer. My son is doing sea trials right now to prepare for a 2017 deployment.

Hi Colorado moms. It's been a while since I've been on navy for moms. My Sailr is on her 2nd mini deployment. Hopefully back the middle of the month. I live in Grand Junction now but make it to Denver at least once a month. In fact I'm heading there tomorrow

Highlands Ranch here!  I work from home so I can often adjust my schedule!

Comment by NavyMom2014 on December 3, 2016 at 4:13pm

I'm on the edge of Westminster/Broomfield.  I'm always home so can meet just about anytime.
