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."

my son is Ship 7, Div 349! I am so happy someone else is in the same division as my son. Have you made any reservations yet? I have looked, but not booked yet.
Hi.. my daughter Jessica is in the same div and ship.. I haven't booked anything, not sure yet but someone said to definitely book the hotel, and when the graduation date is more secure, then book the flight.. hope the date doesn't change!! :) love and luck to you and yours.
I am too so glad to find other moms from this Division, i was getting discouraged earlier when I saw other division's mom's group and none for this one..Hope to meet all of you too..
where does your son go after bootcamp? my son is going to Charleston-he is a grad and go. I sure wanted to spend more time with him, but I will make every moment count after graduation.
my son is a grad and go too , off to Pensacola, yes i wish we have more time to but there will be other times..just pray he does well and get enough rest..saw the video of training and it looks very intense...
Hello all, I'm not exactly a mom but my daughter is in ship 7 Div 349.

AirCrewMom, my daughter is off to Pensacola as well. Do you know what day they are leaving? She said in her first call she thought it would be saturday. I'm thinking Friday though.
My son said Saturday also...he said that they are a grad and go..I will write him tonight to ask again.
We booked the lodge until Sunday just in case.. if not we will spend as much time with him as possible...
its so nice to see other with family in this div and ship! my husband is there and its very hard on my daughter. but he stays in great lakes for et/fc... nice to meet you all
so glad to meet you too...hang in seven year old son is missing his brother a great deal...
they fought all the time when they were together but now that they are apart, he is saying his nightly prayers to keep his brother safe, he is very scared and as each nights gone by I am hoping he will get better.
thanks and yeah my daughter is getting a bit better she isnt waking in the middle of the night crying for daddy but it would be nice if we could get a letter or a call soon.... i want to know he is alright... im just in anticipation..
Hi Ann, This site is great, thanks for sending it to me.. wish I was a fly on the wall.. I would love to know what is going on!
Hi everyone. My daughter is in the same ship and division. Can't wait until we start to get letters and find out what is going on. I think the 'not knowing' is the worst part of her being gone. I just want to know that everything is okay.
