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."

Hello to all in Divisions 333 and 334. My son is in 333.
Hi there! My son is in 334. How is everyone doing?

Hello, My son is in ship 03 Div 334, I recieved a letter on Sat. and another one today. Just wishing for a phone call.

How is everyone holding up?

Only 1 letter (note) received.  We miss him terribly.  How about you?
My son is in the same ship and div as your son, how is your son doing???  Mine is doing well, just really bad cold right now, but does not want to go to sick bay.  Got a call last night, it was great!!
My son has been very sick (103 +) ...said the same thing that he did not want to be SIQ as he would miss things and basically you're confined to your bunk for 2 days with no getting up other than for meals or bathroom.  He said, "and quite frankly Mom, those bunks aren't that comfortable".  I heard another Mom of same div, 333 say that her son had the flu.  But we have received 2 letters from him and a call last Friday and he said that he's better.  Tough enough to make it thru BC even when feeling great.
Yes - we will set up the meet and greet on Thursday the 6th.  All of us will have the opportunity to visit as families.  Looking forward to meeting all of you!  Very excited for that day to come! 
I have not received the form letter :(  I did however get his address from his recruiter. Hopefully correct.
haha, good I'm not the only one stalking the mailman.
We are from Ohio. I also have 2 daughters age 20 and 14 and another son 12. My SR is 18.
Kimberly, my sons rate is HM
My SR is 18 as well. His rate will be AT (Aviation Electronic Technician). Hope I got it right. Checked with the recruiter today and he said the address we have did not change. Told use that 334 classed up really fast once they got there. Please let us know when y'all get the form letter. Nothing here yet!
