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:

Hi Kelly - I'm new to this group but I have a son that is currently in A school for ET training at Great Lakes, so I would love to get together with other St. Louis moms.  I was so excited to find that there was a St. Louis moms group on-line.  I'm hoping to make it to the get-together on Saturday - so I can meet all of you.  Thanks so much for organizing! - Patti

Exciting!  Bring a picture or 10 of your sailor.  I'll also bring two flat rate boxes and show you how to pack for your troopers.  If any of you are experienced Navy Moms/spouses, write down a couple of your top hints of surviving A school or deployment. 

Cannot wait:)
