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:

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.

hello ladies planning a Guam trip, 

Down load an app called hopper.  If you plan ahead of time put in your dates and they will alert you when you can get the best prices.  Guam airline prices are expensive but it’s so worth the trip.

Our son was stationed in Guam for 7 and half years and loved it. We went 3 time while he was there.

I am not in the FL group - didn't know there was one! We moved from CT and still part of that group. My son is sonar and his ship right now is in dry dock state-side, but because of COVID we still cannot see him! You are only about 1 1/2 hours away from us.

Hi  Cath Bubblehead mom ~ I live near Wildwood. My son is an EOD tech. Not assigned to a ship. We are hoping to go to Guam in 2022 after he's all settled in.  Are you in the Florida Moms group? They got together a few weeks ago near you.

Hi Navy Mom,

my son has been in for 7 years and has been in Guam for 2 - although, most of the time he has been out with the ship. We have not made it to Guam because of deployment and COVID. We too live in Fl - near the mouse. Where are you?

Comment by NavyM♥m on March 9, 2021 at 10:29pm

Hello Guam Moms!
My son has been in for 9 years. He will be stationed there for 5 years (or more). I see a trip to Guam in my future & would like any suggestions on planning a trip there. I live in Florida.

Hello!  My son is also on the west coast.  We are too, in the same state.  He has been in 7 years, and this is the first time we have been on the same coast.  While I am happy he is so close, and we can see him occasionally, I really feel for the families who can't.  If there is anything I can do for any of your sailors, please feel free to reach out.  

Comment by Cath Bubblehead mom on February 19, 2021 at 10:25am
My son is on the west coast with the dry dock ship and he too has little to do. We cannot visit, due to quarantine restrictions and he cannot leave the state. So close, yet still far away. We haven’t seen him in over 2 years.
Comment by Tx Mom of Far Away Nuke on February 19, 2021 at 10:05am

Skooter64 - Hello!  My son is also in dry dock on the west coast staying in a condo.  If it is the same one as yours, it is quite a nice one with a rooftop "bar" hangout spot with ping pong tables, fire pits, and conversation areas.  He bought his first house in Guam and we also haven't had a chance to visit yet.

Comment by Skooter64 on February 19, 2021 at 10:00am

My son just finished his seventh year in the Navy. He relocated to Guam in August. Right now his ship is on the west coast of U.S. in dry dock. He is in a condo with other sailors. He is a MMN2. The photos he sent from Guam were gorgeous, but we haven't been able to travel due to COVID, so we haven't seen him in over a year. The amount of time he has spent in quarantine in the past year added up to quite a lot. I'm glad that now he is with his shipmates and has roommates. I hope to see Guam sometime in the future. Your posts about how beautiful it is match up with the photos our son has sent and posted.
