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:

MarleyJean, I live not too far from you. When did your daughter leave? I live near Duluth. When is your daughter graduating?

I live in Loganville in Gwinnett County. My daughter is in boot camp.

Hi Everyone!! Welcome! Sorry - I haven't been on in a month or so.  It's like Suwigg said, we're much more active on the Georgia Navy Moms FB page just because most of us see notifications more immediately on that group and have gotten to know each other.  BUT.. Navy for Moms is definitely the best place to be for those of you who have new SR's or just went through boot camp.

My son has been in the Navy for about 4 years and he's currently stationed in California after his last deployment.  I'm in Dunwoody.  We are about due to have another meet and greet soon, though I think there was just one recently on the southside.  If you have any questions or need anything, we're all one big family and most of us remember all too well those new Navy Mom days (and nights) and are happy to help with anything and everything we can.  Feel free to friend me on this page and/or message me with any questions.

Happyone00, there are definitely lots of experiences to share (mostly good - many humerous ones).  We can definitely give you a list of things to do to prepare yourself and your SR so that when the time comes you don't feel so alone and anxious.

Hello, I've been watching Georgia Navy Moms for a few months. We are in McDonough. My son leaves for boot camp on July 26th. I am trying to learn all I can as we are new to the military life. I'd love to hear some other Mom experiences. I am so proud of my son's decision.

Welcome MamaDawg in Athens! Rome, GA here. Mine graduated 6/10/15. Boy has the time flown. He is on his first deployment right now in the western Pacific. So far from home. He's been gone a month and I can't wait to hear from him. Where will your son go to A-school?

Hi MamaDawg - If you are on Facebook, we have a much more active group there. Georgia Navy Moms, and there are larger Navy Mom groups on Facebook as well. Join us! Hang in there - Boot Camp is hard on the mom!
Johns Creek here. My son is leaving San Diego and his destroyer after 4 1/2 years. He's heading to Naples Italy for his next duty station.
