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."

So exciting, do you know about hall of fame, did your son call? Also any mom out there with son A from arizona? My son went to his aunts house on Christmas, so thankful, he said he was going to tell his mom about this site
I don"t know what hall of fame son called today and it was great talking to him. He sounded very tired but is looking forward to graduation..He mentioned navy4moms and wanted to know if we are going to the meet n greet..We are planning on it..They won Captains Cup along with 907...907 is the coed team and 802 is all male...very exciting for all...
Hall of fame is just one division and it is based on there over all scores on everything, and sometimes no div. wins it, our son said they were really close to getting it and it depended on the rack inspection last Mon and the  academic test on Wed. it would be really exciting if they got it, but I feel like he would have told you about it if they did. was it a long call?I wish we had gotten one as his sister just bought a ticket to come to graduation and the only one who could put her on the list is him, oh well she will have to go on the standby line,he will be so excited that she is coming,
I had about a 10 min. call but the connection wasn't very good. I had to keep asking him to repeat things, it was odd how there was alot of silence in between talking too, he sounded very tired and robotic..... It was so exciting to hear from him but it was an unusual call..That is so great that your daughter is able to go..yay..Maybe you can ask him to add your daughter on when he calls to say he is a sailor..If you don't get a chance then it will just be a fun surprise..I'm sure she will get in, our graduation isn't as big as some of them...just save some room for her on your
I had a call like that a while back, I could hardly hear him, but it was still a call though!  Can't wait for the I am sailor call, hope to meet you GG,
Me too !! Will you be going to the meet n greet?
Yes, we fly into Milwaukee at 3pm so we should make it, are you going?
Yes, we are flying in to Milwaukee on wednesday..We expect to be there. I am sooooo excited..I just saw the countdown clock and I can't believe it says 3 days !! Yay..Yipeee and Hooyaaaaa...I sound like I'm 5...hahahaha

When R called on Sunday, they were getting the final graduation list together. They are all sharing any extra spots with each other. He knew that my daughter and I are going so he had given away 1 of his spots, but then I told him that his aunt and uncle are coming from Ohio. He was going to try to add his uncle to someone else's list. According to Lydia, everyone got into her graduation for her son in September.


NavyMom- Yes, my son is going to Pensicola.
