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."

932 Check your mailboxes! :)

I got a very short - 4 liner - but I loved it!  I've read it three times and probably will have it memorized soon!  He said they were very busy, busy, busy!  :)  Other than that - I don't know what day they are on, how anything is going, etc.  None of my questions were answered other than he sounded upbeat in his letter and he wished me a Happy Mother's Day!  :)  He did thank me for writing! 

Congrats on the letter. If I get mine tomorrow, I will fill you in on anything that my SR wrote!

We got a nice letter today.  Good to hear from him, finally.  Also had a "Happy Mother's Day" wish included.  Reading it, we could picture him writing it and his subtle sense of humor shining thru. Thank goodness for written letters:)

Just got a "sailor mail" e-mail from our other Navy son who is deployed, to be printed and sent to our "boot camp" son.  Already printed, in envelope and will go out tomorrow, w/ another note from mom:)  Absolutely fantastic to hear from both Navy sons in less  than 24 hours.  Sailor mail is a special treat--very rare when on a deployed sub.

Got some letters today!  It really was driving me crazy, but so glad to hear from him!  Sounds like they are very busy and he is settling in!  I really can't wait to see him!


Got 6 letters today =D

Yessir!!!!  I love Div. 932's RDC........


Got our phone call today!!!  Loved,  Loved, Loved talking to our son!!!

Did everyone get a phone call from there SR's in 932 yesterday? We did not. Starting to get a little worried that something may be wrong...

Your SR may have had the call right at dinner time. My SR said they were supposed to have 50 minutes but lost 20 on the march to the phones. They are learning.
