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:

@Beglish...i am, kind of.  I am a Falmouth mom of two sailors.  However, I am currently living in Arkansas where my husband is on active duty. I'm glad to connect!  My son and daughter have been enlisted for five years.

Hi All - is anyone a Navy Mom in the Cape Cod area?  My son is on deployment and I'd like to connect with other Moms near me.  Thanks!

Comment by Rhody Navy Mom on January 4, 2018 at 8:42pm
Great idea Donna! Let's plan a get together! Better check the Patriots schedule first since playoffs start next week! Lol
Comment by Timsmom97 on January 4, 2018 at 7:54pm

Happy New Year!!!  I personally think it’s a great idea to get everyone together.  My son is going on his first deployment so It would really help meeting some of you more experienced moms and others who are going through the same as I am.  Please let me know.

I would so like to get together with everyone again. It has been too long.  Anyone else want to get together for a visit?

Comment by Timsmom97 on October 23, 2017 at 8:31pm
I am new to the group and would very much like to be part your next meeting. I live in Springfield. Please keep me updated.
Comment by Mindya on October 23, 2017 at 9:05am

It would be nice!!! We could always set something up and see who can go. I am in Plymouth. Is there anyone else close to hear that would like to get together? 

Comment by Johanna on October 10, 2017 at 11:34am
It would be nice to catch up in person and see some new faces...)))...and the familiar ones!
Comment by Mindya on October 10, 2017 at 10:57am

Hi to all!!! I think some of us are in agreement of needing some NMH's!!!! I am open to meeting somewhere so we can all get to know each other and get the support and understanding we need. I live in Plymouth so if anyone would like to meet please let me know. I know I welcome speaking to someone who truly understands all I am going through.

Hello JMH and Barbara! Just want to introduce myself. My name is Donna. My son joined the Navy after 9/11. He's in the Reserves and a member of NYPD (recently promoted to Detective). He's been deployed twice and sent all over the country during his time serving active duty. Last year he made Chief in the Navy.

I've been involved since he joined in 2001. This group and others help me to keep focused and sane with his crazy, hectic "double life".

Still hoping to get a meeting time organized. Hope you will be interested in coming and meeting other Navy Mommas.

In the meantime, take good care!
