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."

Thank you a fellow navy mom told me about the group. My son is 18 just fresh out of high school and he is my youngest and only son. I am trying to handle the best I can, but have the worst case of empty nest syndrome. I didn't seem to have this hard of a time when my girls left home, but I think it's because I could talk and text them whenever I wanted.

Now that the holidays are over. Let's plan to have another Northern Nevada Navy Moms Meetup. What dates and days and times work best? Weeknights and weekends are good for me. Let's hear from you local Northern Nevada Moms. It would be GREAT to get together and share experiences and connect.

Our Northern NV Navy Moms picnic was a great success yesterday. We had a bumpy start as the weather didn't cooperate and the location we picked was occupied when we got there. Thankfully one of the Dads was able to help us find an indoor location. There were 4 of us Moms and one Dad who had DEPpers and a Reserves Mom and a Reserves Wife along with her parents. All the DEP kids showed up at one time or another. Ski-Nanny...thank you so much for your help and for the GREAT door prizes and your wealth of knowledge. You really helped make this a success and reached out to those Moms who are going to be missing their boys soon. We are hoping to get together again next month to work on the N4M Holiday Project. It was so wonderful to meet new Navy Moms and make a local connection.

Today's the day for our picnic! I just looked at the hourly weather forecast and it looks like we might just luck out. So...we are a GO for the picnic at this point. Looking forward to meeting all you wonderful ladies and hopefully we'll add a few more to the group today.

Sounds good Ski-nanny. Looks like about 67 degrees. all can blame the weather on me for planning this picnic. LOL

Thinking of bringing coffee, it's supposed to be cold.  Good idea?

Comment by Sierrascrapper (ETN2) on September 19, 2013 at 12:18am
Awesome Ski-Nanny! Definitely bring your's a family affair. Don't forget to bring a pic of your Sailor. I hope your reserves friend can make it too. GREAT idea on bringing fun stuff. I was trying to think of what special thing I could pull together. Haven't come up with anything brilliant yet...but I'll think of something ;)

I'm still planning on coming, hopefully bringing my parents if that's ok?  And I've mentioned it to a mom who has a daughter in the Reserves.  I'll be bringing a couple of surprises, door prize sort of things.  

Comment by Sierrascrapper (ETN2) on September 18, 2013 at 11:00pm
Kelly about an appetizer dish? I have gotten calls from 3 DEP Moms. So far we have someone bringing Fruit Salad, Pasta Salad, Dessert and Side Dish. Plan to bring enough to feed at least 15 just to be safe.

Oh and bring a pic of your Sailor. We would love to see him in his uniform. Also...the weather may get soggy on Sat. I'm hoping not, but we'll have to wait and see.
