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."

OK Peggy - lets keep those "no call" vibes going!  Wish I knew when was the safe zone too - lol  Don't be too hard on yourself about your grandson - is someone else able to go be with him during PIR? So glad you will be close to him in San Antonio!

Woah, I just received an 847 call but not from the normal numbers I see when it's from my SN.  It was an automated message about paying too much for car insurance.  Talk about making my pulse rush.

That had to have been heartbreaking when you realized it wasn't your SR :/  Sorry girl!

I'm just getting used to this website! So, hang in there. We only have 8 days ladies! Oh my did you ever think we would get this far! My SR says he is doing very well & he's ready to be done but aren't they all. I'm getting so antsy! I got a 45 minute phone call with him on Sunday! It was fantastic! Well, I just want everyone to know that WE ARE ALMOST THERE! So happy for my babe in becoming a SAILOR! Hang in there ladies! 

Yay! Almost there! Got my list started of what I need to pack! Come on 2/8 :)

Can we really breath now?  I feel so bad for the kids that have gotten hurt and are delayed.  I will be so glad when his folks get the I"M A SAILOR  phone call.  We are 73 and 75 so decided we had better stay home during the cold weather.  He knows he is in our hearts and in our prayers.  Can't wait til he gets to San Antonio.

Peggy I think our boys are gonna make it! :) I am so excited for them! Sad to hear about the ones who are delayed though :/ So happy your SR will be close to you in A School! That will be great for you both! I am sure he completely understands you not being there at PIR and will be looking forward to seeing you soon!

I got a call from my SR last Sunday too!!! He sounds great, having fun and ready to be done. Wants to move on! I have my packing list started too! Time flew! I still remember dropping my son off and thinking how long it will be! Its here! I am getting really excited now! I hope the "no call" vibes are still there.....!  :)

Yay!  So glad we all got calls! Sure helps this last week get by a little easier :)  Praying all our SR's are having a great week and can see that it's almost at the end! This time next week I will be landing at Midway :)

I have my suitcase out & ready! Holy moly! Sorry about your phone call mishap, KYKathryn! We are almost there! I only have a 5 hour car ride thank goodness! I wish everyone safe travels! See you in 7 days! AHHHHHHHHHHHH! WOOOHOOOO!
