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."

LHR - Hmm I wish I could help but I really don't know which places out here are reasonable because we already had all of our furniture before we moved here from Pensacola. I'm sorry. Anything else though just ask!
Comment by LHR on April 21, 2011 at 6:22am


Thanks - that might be very helpful. Do you remember the name of the place?

Comment by LHR on April 20, 2011 at 7:23am
Thanks Maddy - just found out that DS will be in VT-28, but not sure when he will start. Any tips on a good place for him to buy decent but inexpensive furniture? He has the bed covered, but not much else!

@ LHR - My husband and I have been out here in CC since the end of October. Yes there are two training squadrons out here now. My husband is in VT-28.
Comment by LHR on April 12, 2011 at 11:20am
Sorry, meant to say only primary training squadron. I've since looked around on the internet and discovered that there's another primary one there now: VT-28.

Hi Everyone,

Been following along on the aviation site since our son started API in Pensacola. He's moving to CC later this week to start primary. One of my brothers is a retired P-3 pilot and trained with VT-27. He said it was the only training squadron there when he was going through. Does anyone know if it's still the only one or if there are others in CC now? It would be fun if our son trained with the same squadron, had the same patch etc.

Hi everyone, The Navy is sending a truck to pick my son's furniture and belongings to ship. This is our first experience with a Navy move. He, of course, cannot be here, so I have to pack him all up. He told me that someone will contact me to interview me a few days before the truck comes. Does anyone know, is this interview by phone? Do they have to come an look at what is beong shipped? Can I box things up before the interview? Any advice appreciated!

Leslie - Wow you've got yourself an entire squadron lady! Good for you :) I absolutely loved Annapolis. I think, even though we didn't see each other much, his time spent at the Academy was my favorite part of our little adventure. I agree completely, Corpus does seem a bit on the dirty side AND rundown. I'm hoping our time here will be short lived. The HEB is actually the highlight of every week for me, it's sad. There aren't any wives here I've been searching for two months and the only wives I can track down all live in Kingsville. But I have to maintain a positive attitude, this place is just a pitstop . :)

Kathleen - I really appreciate your positive outlook. I really enjoy hearing from someone that this place isn't as awful as it seems. :) I'll just have to do some more exploring and maybe I'll find a few surprises.

Wow, well thank you ladies for the heads up. I'll be sure to keep all that in mind.
Comment by maddy08 on October 15, 2010 at 10:26am
That's terrible about your son's books and gear, those things are so expensive. My husband just got his issued to him last week; he was so excited. The apartments we're going to be living at offer personal garages for an extra fee so I think you've inspired me to take advantage of that. Haha. Thank you for all the little tips. It's the most information I've gotten so far on the place!
