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 Jennifer - I see you joined the group.  One thing you can do is you can "send message to group".  This will send your message to everyone in the group - it will go to their email on file.  Maybe you'll get a response from someone.  Look on the upper right hand corner of the group page to find this function.

Hi all, I haven't been on this site for a very long time. My sailor is still in and is in Australia now. He's been there for two years now. He signed up for another year there because he loves it there. No I haven't had a chance to go see him there, way too expensive to go. I'd love to go though. He as home for a month last July into August because my mom had passed away. It was so nice to have him home but would've been better on better terms. He has a girlfriend over there and is a wonderful girl. I hope it works out. He's maybe coming home in May, I hope so bad.
Willysmom, good luck to your sailor in civilia life. It's always nice to have them home for good. My other son was in the Airforce and got out last year because he came down with diabetes two years ago this past thanksgiving. So he was forced out. But it's nice knowing he's home. Hope all of you and your sailors are safe. Let's hope this groundhog doesn't see his shadow, lol.
