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 sailor hit the one year mark while waiting in DC to get on a flight back to his home base in Jacksonville, FL.  He had leave from 12/29 until 1/11/2011 but couldn't get out of Syracuse, NY to catch his connecting flight in DC that night back to Jacksonville...It was sure great to spend time with him and it's just so hard to believe that it has been a year already since our PIR Group went to Bootcamp.  He is an Airman in the VPU-1 Old Buzzards Squadron and loves it!!  I hope everyone is doing well!!

Thats good to hear Nancy, i know he is enjoying himself. And i'm glad your doing good. Its hard to believe that a year ago we sent our kids off to BC and now they are seeing so many places and becoming adults.

Hi Ladies,


Glad to see all the "recruits" are doing well as sailors! Chris is in Sasebo, Japan assigned to LSD-49 the USS Harpers Ferry. We saw him at the end of September through the first week of October. The ship is currently docked at base - but Chris has already been to the Philippines, Guam, and Singapore as well as Japan! So far he really likes it and has made some great friends. He loved Singapore and is enjoying getting to see different places, meet new people, and experience new cultures!

Hope you all had a great holiday season.

Hi Barbara, where is your son going to A-school? You may need to joing a group for his rate,( like I'm on a group called sub school moms) they will help you alot on those groups. My son is in Groton,CT. for sub school, so i couldn't help you unless your son was there.
Comment by siscarrie on September 9, 2010 at 9:11pm
Congrats to your daughter Toni. I know you are excited about seeing her. My son is still in Groton,CT. he is still going through all his schooling, he should be done sometime in Feb. He gets to come home for Christmas, it been to long since i've seen him(at PIR).
