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."

The Ten OPSEC and COMSEC Points:

Don't discuss future destinations or ports of call!
Don't discuss future operations or missions!
Don't discuss dates and times of when we will be in port or conducting exercises!
Don't discuss readiness issues and numbers!
Don't discuss specific training equipment!
Don't discuss people's names and billets in conjunction with operations!
Don't speculate about future operations!
Don't spread rumors about operations!
Don't assume the enemy is not trying to collect information on you so he can kill you, he is!
Be smart, use your head, and always think OPSEC and COMSEC when using email or phone!

Rules of thumb for parents and loved ones:
*If your sailor indicates to you they can't tell you something, believe them. Don't try to coax them into telling.
*If it is published by the navy about where a ship or unit has been (not going), that is when it's okay to share.
*If your sailor is in a high security area, say a nuke or EOD, consider using a nick name for them and you, a seperate email without your name on it, and don't even tell where YOU live. Let them tell you what they want you to tell others or if they are worried about info, always let them know you are on here. That's why they are careful on here about only putting first names on your profile page.
*Be aware, the OPSEC 10 points are about what they can't talk about. Think about what YOU might share as a parent or loved one of a military member that could cause trouble. You also have a responsibilty.
*Be respectful and teach other parents if they don't know and say too much, no need to be disrespectful or mean to them about it. Just guide them and let them know they maybe need to rewrite or delete the post. There isn't a member on here that wants to cause trouble or harm. They just aren't thinking or don't know.

Hi, is there a group for moms with Seabea's in Iraq??
Comment by Anita5JS5 on August 3, 2008 at 6:06pm
My son Chris got to call today. It was great to talk with him. He will be attending A school in Gulfport for seven weeks. I mentioned to him that so many Seabees are in Iraq. He is well aware and will probably volunteer. I have such butterflies in my tummy when it comes to thinking of him in war zone. At least it is several months out before I have to really think about it. Glad to hear of all the sailors that really enjoy Gulfport. Take care everyone.

Hi Seabee Moms, just thought I would let you know that we are adopting a group of Seabee Sailors for August and they are stationed in Afganistan and Iraq. If you are interested in writing them or sending a care package, drop me a note or see the group labeled Molly's Adopt a Sailor.

We don't know for sure where my son will be going to A school. We hope it will be Gulfport.
Comment by Anita5JS5 on July 29, 2008 at 10:22pm
My son Christopher is so happy about becoming a Seabee. He's at BC and has PIR August 29. I have reservations, worries, concerns and then some. I'm exited, proud, and missing him something terrible. I have googled Seabee stuff and read alot, but this website has been the most beneficial. Thanks for having a group.

Too funny Linda! Happy Holidays to all.
Comment by Mary, Proud Mom of Nick on July 2, 2008 at 6:08pm
Just read there was a change of command in Gulfport today, sounds like all of your sailors were probably in their dress whites for the event.

Sorry Andi, I do not know anything about Lenardwood - I thought all the Seabees went to Gulfport but now I know otherwise. Your son should request to talk to a career counselor either at bc or when he gets to A school. My nephew is a seabee reservists and he has completed A school and has been home almost two months and cannot find work (lives in a depressed state) and is getting frusterated. He is wishing he went enlisted and is going to see what his options are.

Hey Bobette, our nephew just graduated from Gulfport on Thursday and I can tell you he really enjoyed it there; weather is great, they have liberty on the weekends and the beach is nearby. He was on hold for a week or so waiting for classes in the beginning but once they started, he truly enjoyed them. Will your son be in construction or ? Is he a reservist or enlisted? Our nephew is a reservist so his classes were 10 weeks long but I believe the enlisted are there for 12 weeks. He said it is the most laid back place ever. Cell phones are allowed so communications are great. He had two roommates, one had a tv and another had a game system - it was all allowed!
