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."

Oh Cora, I wish you could be there to give her a hug as well. No leave before reporting to Japan??

I hate to say this but our son is graduating from C school on Friday as well, he was informed today - he made Honor Grad! He will be flying home the same day to start his leave and then will report to Hawaii in late August.

Thank you ladies, hopefully your sailors will all enjoy C school. They seem to get alot of respect there and are really focused on their specialty.

Cora - our sailor might be questioning Japan now but we lived there for five years and it is fabulous. I would recommend it to every sailor if they have the chance. There is so much to see and do there and the people are just wonderful. Our son was actually born there and really wanted orders to JN but due to the system he is training on - none of those ships are homeported in Japan at this time so he went with the next best thing...Hawaii. Yokosuka is one of the ports that his ship goes to - so he will still get to see his birth place :-)

Good morning C school moms.

We talked to our sailor last night...he's heading into the final stretch of C school and should be graduating July 31st. Although we will be happy to have him home on leave --- not sure I will be ready to say those goodbyes as he reports to his first ship. Strength and prayers will be needed!

Welcome Hoorah. 4th of July might be disappointing but in four weeks, he should get to come home (right???) San Diego is a beautiful location, will he be reporting to a ship or does he have shore duty?
