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've "heard" folks talking about these pictures, however; I have not seen them.  Does anyone have any they are willing to share or know of an order form to get them??

It's great to get updates. Congrats on the little one and the move.

Congrats on the baby and the awesome place to be stationed! Glad everything is going well!

Just stopping by and saying hello as well. A lot has happened since I've been on here. We had our little boy May 21st and now we're stationed in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. I'm still adjusting, I've only been here a week.
Comment by Kim on July 20, 2011 at 12:08am
Yeah, Big E came in from 6 month deployment and we were able to go to Norfolk to see sailor come off the ship! What an awesome moment! Now we are all home with sailor flying in tonight for his leave.

Judy, how cool for T! But not so for you as he will be all the way on the other side of the country! Boca Raton is a pretty little city!

Good Evening Ladies,  It has been awhile from my last post but I have been checking in reading bits & pieces.  Just wanted to let you all know that Tristan is still reservists and has not had deployment you remember he is fmf corpsman.  Well he came home from Las Vegas just to say good bye, he's moving to Boca Raton, Florida next week to pursue a career in law enforcement.  He went on a diving vacation trip while there took the Police academy entrance exam and placed in the top 15 percentile so it looks like he has a shot!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm so happy that everyone is still keeping in touch...I pray every night that those deployed will stay safe while keeping all Americans safe while we sleep!!

My son is a Shellback! The Enterprise crossed the equator and they had the ceremony yesterday...from Wog to Shellback! Yeah!
Comment by Tess (Ship 11, Div. 210) on June 11, 2011 at 10:21pm
Where did the time go? Oh yeah, we're moms -- time, especially with our children (man or woman, they will always be our children) goes by too fast to keep track. Hope you and your loved ones are all doing well. Alex is in Virginia Beach for a few more weeks and then will be stationed in San Diego. We couldn't feel more fortunate since we live in Los Angeles and San Diego is a relatively short drive. But first, a few weeks leave. Can't wait to see him again. I'll bet I'm not the only mom here who witnessed her son/daughter grow into a man/woman in the last year. Thank you all for being so wonderful. God Bless :)
