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."

Good Morning Everyone!

8 more days till I see my SAILOR!!! A shout out to all the 3/22/13 "GRADS" and their families!!!!!

Hello Everyone!!!!

4 more days!!! Sooooo anxious.

Just wondering did you ever find the pictures?

Does anyone know SR Hugland or Hucland (something like that) in Div 127?

I was wondering if anyone has heard about BS for 127 & 128 yet. From what I have seen they might be doing it today?

hey bobbo....havent heard anything from our son, he is 127.  I did hear from some other moms through fb that they had BS yesterday and we may be getting the "I'm a Sailor" call today.  But we havent heard from our son, sorry, hopefully good news soon.  We are suppose to be flying out in the morning.  Praying for them all.

thanks ebennett, I heard the same thing after I wrote the above. Let's hope we hear soon! It looks like between now and say 4 or 5 hours...judging by the responses from yesterday's group. Mine is in 128.

From the info that I had, 127-130 should have gone through last night so hoping the calls come in soon!  Check their FB accounts as they may be on there before the calls come in!

128 is calling
