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."

Not sure if this group is still active.  My son is currently stationed at CC, he just arrived in early April.  Don't know much about it or his job except he is a corpsman.  If this group is still active I would enjoy getting to know some other moms who have kiddos in the area.

@Tandy - Hello. My husband is going through flight training right now. We are currently stationed at NAS Pensacola; however, we're getting moved to Corpus Christi next week! I haven't been able to find very much information about the place. Any info you could give me would be most appreciated! :)

Yeah, greenside corpsmen aren't particularly fond of being called sailors either...they are DOCS... they operate in the la, la land of not quite Marine, not quite Navy...
but he's going blue side and will have to adjust!

Amanda, let me know, maybe if a sailor will box it up, I have a friend and family down there that would mail it? or at least store it until he gets where he's going? or if he's like Matt, it's "just clothes" and who cares?

and then there were 3! Hello ladies, today I got a call from my son, a Navy corpsman serving greenside with a Marine unit that since his reenlistment 3 days ago...he has received orders for NASCC, will be there in early fall!!

Corpus is my home town, I am a Navy brat, got all my medical care from that same hospital he's going to work in...and have family and friends down there to spoil him rotten! Also, I live in Austin, so I expect to be seeing his face often and certainly for holidays! I'm so excited I can barely handle it. Right now he's been "loaned" out to Yuma AZ, where he is still greenside with the Marines. Then back to Camp Lajuene until he comes home to Texas.

I'll try to answer questions about Corpus, I have visited there frequently since leaving home. The beach, the beautiful beach! The town itself has not improved over the years, become somewhat of a border town, with wages to match. Alot of hospitals there, rehabs, etc. Oil refineries still on the west side. Could do better tourist wise if they put some effort into it, and they do not keep it as clean as when I as growing up and living there years ago. Flour Bluff is by the base,, I assume it's still a good school system, it used to be. Lots of little dive bars, tattoo shops, the things you find outside most bases.

I'm hoping my son being there means my niece and her boys will have some help around the house and I know my son will attend football and soccer games, so that will give him something to do.

Del Mar College is a good junior college, courtesy of the USN all those years ago, so my son is going to pick up some more credits there.

and the cheapest, best Mexican food is in Gulfway Shopping center down on the side by the Dairy Queen...real chalupas!

nice to meet you both!
