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."

It was so good to hear from my son last night. He sounds so good, and he's upbeat in his anticipation of the 13th. I was actually surprised to hear from him because it was around 10 EST/9 CST, but his voice was a good lullaby for my night's rest.

Hi gOdzgurl,

I am glad your SR called you last night, mine did to and I was surpirse because in our facebook page some of the Moms commented that they had not received a call from their SR. My SR also sounded so good and ready for graduation.  Thank you and God Bless You.


Hi Ladies,

I am so happy you ladies received a call home!  It is always a welcome relief when you here their voices. Hopefully the rest of us will get cals soon too. What div is your son in. Mine is in 343.

My SR is in div 343 and I was wondering if you SR mentioned how they did on inspection last Thursday.  Last Thursday there was also a PT, did he mention anything about how the group did?  Any information would be appreciated. 


Good Morning Ladies! My son wrote that they may have a possibility to call us on Sept 3.  He wasn't sure but wrote it may be a good possibility! So make sure you all have your phones charged and ready in case they do.

Does that mean Battle Stations will be on Sept 3rd?

My SR is the guide on for the div 343. He wrote on aug 11 saying that they were going to have another PFA, and 2 inspections on the same day and another on the next day. Their cheif went to the brother div 344. But is happy with the RDC's that they have. Then he went on to say that they may get a chance to call home on Sept 3. So I really don't know for sure when battlestations are. I saw that some moms got calls yesterday but I haven't heard anything from my SR.  So I wait for more info too. So if anyone knows more please let us all know. Thankyou 

My SR is in 344. I havent heard anything yet. I appreciate all of the information.
