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."

Hello there Ship 14 DIV 362!!!

Thanks ellen0502!  Hello to all the other Moms as we make fasten our seat belts and hold on tight for this ride called "boot camp"!!  

Hello everyone Ship 14 Div 362


Hello to our own personal discussion group!   :)   Our SR is on Ship 14  Div 362

Hello there!  Ship 14 DIV 361 here. 

Hi! Ship 14 Div 361 as well:) See you at Sarge's meet and greet?

The only other person I know here is Kimpsu89. Are the others going to be at PIR and Sarge's Meet and Greet?

yes we're attending the meet and greet! we fly into O'Hare at 4:00 that day!

Hello Ladies!  Ship 14, Div 361....  Did anyone get a phone call yesterday?  I did, which was a nice surprise since his gf got the call last weekend.  My husband and SR's gf and I are going to PIR and planning on going to the Meet and Greet...

Yes, we got a second call too!  Great surprise and he sounded much better than he did last week.  We will be at the meet and greet as well.  Have a great week!

Glad we got unexpected phone calls this weekend!!!  My SR didn't sound as good as she did last week, but it is because she has a nasty head cold and is just feeling tired out.  She also said she failed her inspection.  The disappointment in her voice broke my heart, but thanks to this site, as soon as we hung up, I set right out to pen the most encouraging letter I've written to date!  She did say she gets another phone call on Wednesday but didn't know what time.  After that, her division will have to "earn" anymore phone calls home.  I will be at work and can't take personal calls, so if they call during business hours, she will be calling her dad's cell phone. 

I really want to go to the meet and greet.  We will be driving to GL on Thursday, so hopefully we get to GL in time to meet up with everyone!! 

I just booked our flights this morning and we are arriving on Thursday as well...   My SR has a sinus infection, so he was tired as well, but good. I was trying to figure out what to say to him in the 5 minutes we had because all of my questions are in the letters!  I was calling all over the house for my daughter to come talk to him as well as she is 10 and really misses him, but in all of the confusion with his call I forgot that she was visiting our elderly neighbor next door.  She was bummed to say the least but glad that we heard from him.  Take care everyone and have a fabulous week!
