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."

Thanks Ellen!

You're welcome. :)

OK anyone else out there Ship 12 div 325,326? Napstersmom? Lol I think its me and you right! So excited I'm running to post office with my letters to mail I hope he doesn't get extra pushups! Lol

My SR is in Shp 12 Div 325 I'm new to learning!

we're ship 12 div 325 still learning here too! excited for august 30..


My husband is also on ship 12 div 325

My son is SHIP 12 DIV 325 as well.

My son is in Ship 12 Div 325. His 18th birthday is on July 22nd, so I have a lot of cards to send him. Hopefully he doesn't get extra push ups when he opens them.

Happy 18 the birthday to your SR! This will be a hard one I'm sure think of what an amazing start to his Adulthood this is. My SRs birthday will be right after BC less then a few days after He will be 21. So sending him down to Pensacola for this milestone should prove interesting. He's safer away from friends right! Lol

I can't wait to see him.  I know he will have matured a lot being at boot camp, and I am looking forward to it.  He is going to Wichita Falls, TX for A school.  He is going to be a SeaBee.  I think his job title is Construction Electrician. Is anyone else's son/daughter going to Wichita Falls?

My son is Ship:12 Div 326, I too am waiting patiently like a kid at Christmas for his letter and mailing many each week, His Recruitor called me today to see how I was doing..we signed up a year ago so we have developed quite the relationship before he left.....I QB's Mom...


The waiting is hard! I guess patience is what us navy moms learn! Huh that was nice of the recruiter to call! Hang in there keep phones ready maybe Saturday or Sunday we could get a call?
