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."

Got a letter yesterday :)

Erica, I also got my first letter yesterday. Very good to hear from him.I've been so worried since his last call from Sat 11/23, since he seemed so tired and a bit emotional at times. But his letter was a bit more upbeat, and my focus is just being as encouraging as possible. I'm sad that I don't see any way I can get there to adopt him out for xmas, and really hope another group or family will.

Yes I was feeling the same way, especially because when I spoke to him he was so sick! His letter made me feel a lot better . I too won't be able to make it for Christmas and it just breaks my heart :( I really do hope he gets to enjoy himself even if it's not me or his parents. At least we will be there on the 10th of January. Keep your phone close I'm very confident we will be receiving a call today :)

Erica I asked my SR if he knew your fiancé but he asked if you were from florida because he thinks your his buddies fiancé (: I sent you a request what does his last name start with? my SR's starts with an A

My daughter is ship14 div 054 does anyone else have a daughter there?

My daughter is also in this ship and div.  I received a call today and she was still emotional.  Did you receive a call from your daughter. May God bless them and give them strength.

No call yet but I got a letter! Her name is Cierra. Glad to finally meet another in her division & ship.
My daughter is also in that division too. I talked to her on sat and it was good to hear her voice.

I have a daughter in ship 14 div 054, Her name is Julia.  No call as of this evening... No letter since Dec 6th. It was written on Nov. 25. Hopefully soon. I sent in my letter for Adopt A Sailor today..

Our SR is same ship and division. No call since right after Thanksgiving and only one letter so far. Gosh, what a rollercoaster of emotions this is, last week I was fine, now I'm not, just need to hear from him. Hopefully it will be 'our' turn this weekend :) Won't be going for Christmas, we live in CA, when we last spoke, he didn't seem too concerned about staying there.

I just found this site, but my daughter in is this ship and division as well.  Her name is Caitlyn.  She turns 21 on the 5th, and last I heard battle stations for her was right after that, the 6th and 7th.  At least that is what she said when I talked to her in early December.  Her grandmother was able to adopt her and her bunk-mate out for Christmas.  We talked then, but she didn't say anything more about battle stations..... Either way, she has an interesting story to tell about how she spent her 21st birthday!

I pray for them each day to have the strength and confidence to do well.

I got a call also it was a bit sort and he was sick but I will be adopting my sailor out for Christmas (:

He is so excited and I know I might sound crazy but ive read it about 7xs lol! IDK if your SRs mentioned anything but he told me not to print anything out because they aren't allowed to have print outs or newspaper clippings :(


Just a heads up (: 3 weeks and we will get to see our SR even if its for only a couple of hours!
