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:

Important to know: is being updated and upgraded, and part of this effort is making room for new members.  To do so, members who have not been active since 12/1/15 will be removed but will be able to re-join.  If you haven't posted since that date, please do so right away.  This is all part of an effort to make the best it can be for everyone, seasoned moms and new members alike.  Thanks and watch for good things to happen!

Good to know about!  It's great to see this kind of progress.  "The new Virginia Military Medics and Corpsmen Program (MMAC), which will be launched on July 1, will help open the door to jobs in the New Virginia Economy to former military medics and corpsmen. Medics and corpsmen receive extensive medical training and experience while on active duty, but some have not yet had the opportunity to receive the civilian licenses or certifications needed to practice outside of the military medical system. MMAC is designed to help create opportunities for these former military medics and corpsmen to apply their skills and training in civilian medical facilities." PDF:  Virginia MMAC Program
