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 spoke to a friend that just went through this and she said it was Monday to Tuesday and she recieved her call around 4:30pm on Tuesday. 

alright thank you (:


Are any of you going to the meet and greet at the Ramada? 12/1

We will be there.  We will not get there until about 7:00 though.  Late afternoon flight, then 45 min drive.  We are staying at the Ramada as well. 


Planning on being there also, hoping for no flight delays!

We will be staying at the Ramada and will be going to the meet and greet.  See you then.


Happy Thanksgiving 04/803 group!  Received 3 calls from my SR today!!!!   Wonderful to talk w/him but makes me miss him all over again!  Only 1 week and we can all be with our "Sailors". He did say BS was next Tuesday so should hear from them Wednesday afternoon.  One week from tonight we can all say hi to each other in person....Can't wait

Hello all!  Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  Got to talk to my SR and skype with was incredible!!

Question:  Is anyone from Myrtle Beach??? If so, would you please send me a message?    I have a question....Thanks!!

This was one of the best Thanksgivings.  We got up at 4:30am and drove to Great Lakes.  When my SR came out of the back room, the emotions were so incredible.  He is so handsome! Lost weight too.  Seeing the smiles on all their faces when they saw their family members made me tear.  To all you moms that weren't able to see their SR,  You just wait!  Their embrace is amazing!  They won't want to let go!  I have to say it was cute when I turned around to the back of the vehicle to show him a picture and his head was tipped forward and eyes shut.  He had a long day.  Can't wait for next week!

Im so happy for you. :O)

Anyone have a Battlestations date for this division?  They should go with 802.  I have a couple of nights in mind for them, but was wondering if anyone got a firm date from their SR.  If so, please private message it to me.  Would love to send a "Message to Group" with the remainder of the BattleStations schedule for this PIR group.  Thanks!

I just saw where one of you posted a BattleStations date for this division here.  Sorry, had to delete it as we cannot post these dates publicly.  It has to be private messaged.

I already show 4 divisions going the night mentioned, but it is possible the some of the other division dates are wrong.  So please private message me if you have a date so we can finalize the schedule.  Thanks!
