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."

For our Sailors - the Father's Blessing
Numbers 6:24-26 from the NIV

May the LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you;
The LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.

I especially like it from the Message translation

God bless you and keep you,
God smile on you and gift you,
God look you full in the face
and make you prosper.

May these words ring true for each and everyone of you!

Anybody out there yet?  Happy 5 year anniversary to those who PIRd on 10*8*10. How many have stayed in the Navy?  My son has chosen to re-enlist and will soon be stationed at Pearl Harbor. I am so glad I've gotten to share this adventure with you all.  Blessings to you and yours.

Comment by mom2nw on October 9, 2013 at 2:34pm

I'm a day late, but Happy 3rd Anniversary all of you in PIR 10/8/10. Quite an adventure so far.   My son is an EO and is now deployed to Africa. His home port is Gulfport. I hope you and yours are all well and happy. God's blessings to you all who have shared this.

Happy Thanksgiving to all and your Sailors
Comment by kellig on October 10, 2012 at 10:33pm

Wow, 2 years is hard to believe.  It's cool to hear what our sailors are doing.  Mine is still at Stennis Space Center as part of the fleet survey team and will be there at least another year until he can go to C school.  He is currently on his 4th survey and is certainly seeing the world.  Maria, it's sad to hear about your sons struggles, my thoughts and prayers for your family.

Hi Navy Wife and Mom yes iwe met also at Gurnee Mall it has being hell for my son for over a year since he arrived in Norfolk he was injured on the ship thanks to his supervisor stupidity and now his back injury is for life. So glad to hear from you and tell your son and his wife that I'm glad they are well the best to them always Stay in touch Thank you for the prayers prayers for your sons safety always Maria
Comment by Navywifeandmom on October 9, 2012 at 7:34am

Maria - so sorry to hear about your son's struggles and injury.  If I remember correctly from 2 years ago, our son's were bunk mates in boot camp.  I will pray for strength and recovery for your son.  My son just got his first duty assignment last month after spending 2 years in South Carolina in school.  To all you other PIR 10/8/10 moms out there - hope your kids are thriving in this new life they have chosen for themselves!!

Comment by navy25 on October 8, 2012 at 8:53pm

Comment by NavyMomLG on October 8, 2012 at 4:24pm

Happy PIR Anniversary everyone!!  I share the sentiments of others that I really would have been a wreck without this group.  I hope all of your sailors are successful and happy.  Mine is still in Nuke training in Balston Spa, but should be done in early January and will then head out to the fleet.  It seems like yesterday we were in Chicago, enjoying a beautiful fall weekend.  Best of luck to all of you!

Comment by mom2nw on October 8, 2012 at 12:33pm

Well, we're into this adventure 2 years now...Happy Anniversary! My son is a Seabee--an equipment operator homeported in Gulfport, MS and has just returned there from an 8 month deployment to the sandbox. He loves what he is doing and I am very thankful for that.  I wanted to thank each and every one of you for supporting me along the way, I certainly could not have done this without you all. God's Blessings on you and yours.
