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."

My son left October 3rd and I just received his box today.  When did your son leave?

he arrived at boot on the 2nd

he arrived on Oct 2nd

I am doing ok. I havent cried since Friday when I got the box. My son will turn 19 this Friday which will be the first birthday I have ever missed so that will be hard. He has never even been away from home so this is a new experience for him and me..lol..

Corky, my son is DIV 022 as well

how cool. I think we talked before and your son is also going to Pensacola for A school so our kids will really get to know each other

Yest they will. What is your son's job?

he is AV which from what I understand will then become AE for aviation electronics

my son is AO,aviation ordnance. I wish he would have chosen something different.

he may be able to if he doesnt like the field after A school. Is he planning on trying to go to college or just stay in the Navy program? My son is going to apply for the sta 21 program when he gets to A school and try to get to college

He may, he has to do 2 years before he can change

oh I didnt know that.hopefully he will like it though. we dont always get to choose what our kids do even though we want to lol My son said he had thought about being a seal and I said no way..lol.. I respect the hell out of what those guys do but being mom I am not sure I want my son to do it..lol guess still a little over protective.lol
