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."

Ny son is currently on the Georgia blue this is his first deployment. It's been a tough transition, but for the most part he's doing ok. It seems.

Hi. My son is graduating from Nuke Prototype school tomorrow and will be headed to the USS Georgia. I'd like to get to know people here to have some contact with others who have loved ones on the same sub.

Hey! My husband is already down at King's Bay, he just got assigned to the USS Georgia. I am currently in CT but I will be moving down to join him around November/December. If anyone has any advice about good apartments in the area that are not Navy housing. I would also love to get to know everyone so I know some people when I get there!

Hi Everyone!
I am new to the group my husband just got assigned to the USS Georgia. We have been married for 4 years and he has been in almost a year. I am new to all of this so any and all information would be much helpful. I am pregnant (17wks) with our first. Can't wait to get to know some of you!
