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."

We just received our form letter yesterday and it was SO GREAT to get word from our son.  He said he missed us...I was actually glad to hear that!  I was afraid he would be so busy that he wouldn't have time to miss us.  Anyway, let's share experiences here, and we can match names to faces at PIR!

Hi my son is in this division

We just got a quick phone call from our SR!   It was so great to hear his voice, although it was just a tease, and I want so much more!  He says that up until today they've been in processing.  Today is actually 1-1 for the division.  Now the fun really starts!

Hey Division family members of 065, if you are still around this site you should check out the scarf/ribbon ideas. So far all divisions have picked a color but your's and 064. Here is a link to the colors picked and some color suggestions.

Hope to hear from you all soon!

MAGENTA  will be fine with me too.

Cool!  Where are you from?

I live in Chicago.   Florida nice

We finally got a letter from our son last week.  Still waiting for a phone call.  Can't wait to hear his voice & hoping we didn't send the phone cards with him for no reason. We are so proud of him but Christmas was so sad without him.


Feel you there, glad you got some letters, hope you get your call soon. Have you checked out the whole scarf thing that is going around yet?? :)

Just signed up, my SR wrote me and she can call me soon.  Can't wait to hear from her!

scarf/ribbon ideas sounds great going on to pick a color. 

Welcome to the group!  So far we are THREE!  Are you a Gator?  Me, too!  If ORANGE hasn't been taken yet, want to wear Orange scarves?

Ooops.  I was too quick on the draw!  If you'd rather have gray than magenta, I'm ok.  Let me know.

Maybe she can put something on the ribbon I would think it will be a dark Magenta?  Maybe a anchor or navy emblem on there.

Gator come's from the High School they were called the Gator's. I'm a hugh Hockey fan when it comes to sports.
