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 Lisa, Welcome. My son is on the USS Columbia. But my daughters
recruiter is on the Santa Fe. We became good friends with him during the whole recruiting time. We are still touch with him.
My son just got back from a month underway. It's tuff with no communication for so long. Hang in there.

He has been there a year and 2 months. We just got back from seeing him last month. He out right now on short underway.
Are you talking about the deployment this fall?

Hi April, welcome to Pearl Harbor. :) I almost thought I was going to read USS Columbia, that is where my son is. Oh well, we are all going through the same thing.
How does your son like it so far? I bet it is a little different then Kansas.

Ahoy, Pearl Harbor Moms.
My son Aaron has stationed in Pearl Harbor since Feb. of 2008. He is a 2nd class ET Nuke on the USS Columbia. He lives off base in an apartment.
We just got back from visiting him a couple of weeks ago. We went on the Dependence/Tiger cruise. Females get to go out and under for 8 hours, then they are let out and the males can spend the night. It was quiet the experience. 8 hours was enough for me. If you ever get to go on one you should do it.
I will be happy to help in anyway I can on this site. It is always good to know other moms with their sailors stationed so far away.
Looking forward to getting to know you all.
