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."

Thank you for sharing. Let's hope that this kids all study for the test. If shiny shoes is what it takes for a phone call I might have to wait till graduation to hear my son's voice again. lol.

Time to show some pictures of the Ship 12 USS Triton....

Thank you for posting the pictures, is sure nice to picture where our love one is at.


Thanks for posting the pics it's very nice to know where my son is staying!GO 12/074!!!! I also play the trivia question every Tuesday looking forward to next Tuesday! foreverandalways3511 why did your Sr get moved to this Div?

C'mon Moms....Get on U.S. Navy Recruit Training Command on Facebook.....They have a trivia question every Tues....1PM (Philadelphia time) We can win a picture of our Recruits during Boot Camp!! Lets go Ship 12 Div 074!!

Hi everyone. I am new to this group. My SR and boyfriend was originally supposed to graduate 2/10. However, we got a call today saying he has been moved back a week. :( He is in Ship 12 Div 074 now. 

Hey! I'm sorry to hear he got moved back :/ But! Everything happens for a reason and maybe it's for the best :)

Great day! Got a letter and a call! He's doing so well :)

Finally got a call from my son last night.  I missed the call.  I was so upset.  The one time I was away from my cell phone.  I cried for a little bit.  I really wanted to talk to him.  Hopefully he will get to call again soon. 


Am so sorry you missed his phone call.  I got lucky and was at my desk when he called. He said it was just starting to snow and that is a bit cold, but they have pretty warm gear. He also said there was about 93 in their division, and if you do not mind the yelling life is pretty good.  Food is not bad, but you got to be sure to eat a lot in every meal, becuse there is no snacking in between (he was used to eating all day). They are all asigned jobs. And training so far has been pretty easy.   I know is not the same as talking to your son, but I figure I share a little of mine with you.

my husband pretty much said the same thing...he said they are well takin care of and the worst part so far was getting his wisdom teeth takin out lol


Haha. My boyfriend had two removed too. Not fun for him.
