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:

What are the barracks like for single enlisted?  Is there a common area they share?  Is there a full kitchen? Do they have their own bedroom/bath?

Comment by navymom3 on October 22, 2015 at 8:01am

AZmom yes she can keep her Arizona license and plates for he car. I am sure she would love he car. Jacksonville is very large.

Comment by azmom on October 21, 2015 at 11:54pm

If we were to ship/drive our daughters car to Jacksonville (we live in AZ) will she be able to keep her registration in AZ or will she have to get FL registration and plates?  She will be there for 3 years.

Jim, sorry to hear your son is dealing with Crohns. I have been managing mine for almost 30 years. If you would like a couple of tips to share with your son, I would be glad to help. One is a supplement that has helped me immensely. Send me a message if you are interested :-)

Welcome azmom!  I'm new to the group also.  My son is corpsman and is scheduled to report to the hospital next year.

Tee-1 - I am finding out about the whole "mom is not as important since I have a gf thing now!"  Well actually he has a fiancé but my calls, texts and emails are not nearly as frequent anymore lol.  But we love the girl and have spent the last four months or so wedding venue shopping for them.

Comment by azmom on October 14, 2015 at 1:54pm

Hello everyone  I'm new to this group.  My daughter will be heading there soon from A School.  I was wondering what everyone thinks about this base and if anyone has any insight to being there for an Air Traffic Controller.

Comment by ReneeBC on October 13, 2015 at 1:00pm

Tee,  So true.  The older my son gets the less talkative he is.  Thank goodness his girlfriend is super communicative!

Ditto, Jim, what's new with your son?  I`m glad your planning a trip to does a parent good!

Comment by Tee-1sailor's mom on October 13, 2015 at 11:58am

In that vein, WELCOME latinnative, Stacey, & KathynnJennifer (sorry if I got the spelling wrong). 

Comment by Tee-1sailor's mom on October 13, 2015 at 11:51am

I want to apologize for not welcoming new members consistently, I need a better system to check this group!  LOL 

Comment by Tee-1sailor's mom on October 13, 2015 at 11:47am

ReneeBC, a daughter-in-law does drop the mom priority down a notch, but it also gives you someone new to love.  My DIL is the best!  She tells me what's really going on! LOL
