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."

I just heard from my son and he did make it to Pcola! He thought he might not get out of Atlanta today, but it all worked out.


Lydia! He saw B tonight at the Galley. He said that he looks so different! He said that B was in class tonight or he would be hanging out with him. But he is hanging out with J who went in the day before him and graduated on 12/22.

Hi Diannep, Thank You for the info. He did order package A and I called the photolab and they said he should have filled out a white card in order to receive it. Hopefully he did..we're still waiting to hear from him...if he says he didn't then I will get in touch with the email contact you gave me...Thanks again !!

Navymom:  I tried to order The Keel (yearbook) after PIR...about 2 weeks later when I realized that my son had not ordered it nor did he get Pkg A which includes it (for free).  Did your son get the $140 Pkg A?  If so, the yearbook will be shipped to you.  I was too late to get one when I called.

Contact the following to ask about it:


He should be able to help you with this.

Just heard from him! He is now at Ohare waiting to go to Pcola. He said they shined their boots all day yesterday, waiting for better weather so they could leave Chicago! Only it's going to be cold down here too. 30's and the wind chill make it in the 20's. But it's a little better than Chicago. I know the sun felt a lot warmer than up there.

All I know is my daughter is stranded in Dulles. 18 nukes to go to Charleston with her.
