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."

Next week would give me a chance to get some items to pack, as I currently have nothing on hand. Tonight I have to get the lawn mowed---I should have done it last night, but I got so caught up watching the news about the tornadoes in OK.

I can do a wed evening. Just not a weekend. 

Comment by Carol in fla on May 19, 2013 at 3:53pm

I do have some have boxes and forms--Next weekend is Memorial Day weekend, and I maybe going out of town then since I have a 4 day weekend...kind of last minute.  Could we do it the following weekend or is that pushing it out too far?

Comment by navymom3 on May 17, 2013 at 8:49pm

Jennifer I am in Middleburg and also belong to MAS but I am unavailable next weekend also as I work the weekends now. Do you have stuff already to put in the boxes? If you need boxes I am a bunch from the last packing party. I also have the forms you need if you want them. I can help this coming wed if you need anything.

I'm in the area, not exactly Jax.  I can't do next week-end.  When do you think the next one will be?  Are they going to be on a regular basis?  I live by the calendar and it fills pretty quick. ;-)  Thanks for hosting this packing party.  Every Sailor in the Unit will appreciate it.

Morning Jennifer,

My son is currently in SERE and heading to JAX next Sat.  What is a packing party?

Comment by Carol in fla on May 3, 2013 at 11:59am

Congrats Mom! Will he be in Mayport or NAS once he comes to Jax? I live about 15 minutes from Mayport, but I know they do alot of training out at NAS.

I am not a new member, but have not been posting here lately. I am in Jacksonville--my son is stationed in Norfolk for the last 2 years and is assigned to the Enterprise. They just got back from an 8 month deployment and it is SO good to be able to call him and hear his voice!
My other son is AF and is all over the place right now, training. But all my kids will be home for Christmas this year, so I am gearing up for that! Can't wait...
