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."

Hi my son comes back from deployment on 8/29. Does anyone know if he will be able to spend time with us immediately or do they have things to take care of first when they get back. He's not sure and I don't want to get there and not be able to see him. Thanks

Thanks for the welcome Tee-1. 

ReneeBC - totally understandable!  You had your hands full!

We are T-5 months until the end of Hawaii and on to JAX.  Cannot wait!  And, for the record, I have lived 30 miles outside of Atlanta for 15 years now and can't wait to get away from the area and the traffic.  I work in Atlanta and my commute is usually hour and fifteen.  There is a bus and train system, but it does not service areas outside of the perimeter of Atlanta or have schedules that allow for family time.  I choose to make sure my 8 year old has a good, hot breakfast and drop her off at school.  By the time I am done with that the last bus has been long gone!  It's a great place to visit though.

I'm sorry for the late reply. Our grandchildren arrived, ages 4 and 6, and were here for a three week visit to Indiana. This grandma was busy, busy, exhausted, busy!  lol                 Our son is AWV aboard a P-3. 

My husband would love to move south, especially the Atlanta area.  His sister lives in Jonesboro.  I want to keep home where it is until our son is out of the Navy though that may change if he goes career.

Tee-1,  I'm glad you had a wonderful visit with your son and daughter-in-law.  Have you already started planning your next trip to Florida?

Wow, that was a choppy post!  LOL

Comment by Tee-1sailor's mom on August 2, 2015 at 12:24pm

Hi everyone, and welcome Pam!  My son & his wife were just here (in Calif) for a visit.  It was so good to see them!  It'd been a year.  Now back to JAX and then he's off on deployment (again).  Mine will most likely be at JAX for a long time.  He & his wife like to vacation in Atlanta.  He's Aircrew btw.  They like FL.  There's talk of buying a house after the upcoming deployment.  One good thing for family, it's a great place to visit!!

Your sailor will love Hawaii!  It truly is a paradise.  Although after being there for two and half years, mine is ready to be closer to family. 

Comment by spomss on July 11, 2015 at 4:02pm

hi Pam-mine was here for C school and is on to Hawaii-but I did get to visit a few times-nice you can get there quick to visit

Comment by Pam on July 11, 2015 at 8:53am

We are absolutely thrilled with JAX.  And how funny, but we are originally from Indiana.  NW corner up by Chicago.  But we've been outside of Atlanta for 15 years now and do not miss the winters up there!  What rate is your son?  Our son is a corpsman.
