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."

It has been over two years - since they left for boot camp.

One month until the 2nd anniversary of PIR.

Received a brief call on Sunday shortly before 8:00 PM Chicago time, then they were shutting the pones down.  Sunday was the day our Seaman's friends got the first calls...

My son also told me about all of their division going to be able to watch the Superbowl - how cool is that?!!  I didnt want to post that on the PIR 2/11 page - some of those moms are still waiting for their calls, I feel bad when I share good news when they are still anxiously waiting.   I am so relieved our Sailors went first, and we all aready got those calls.  I slept like a baby last night!!  Looks like I am going to miss the Meet and Greet ( have to pickup my daughter and grandson at the airport) , but hope to see you all at graduation and at least meet you there.   I'll have the 3 year old grandson with me, and my mom and my daughter, and we'll all have LALA ribbons on and hopefully yellow scarves! ( I  took the easy way and ordered instead of making them!)

He said their Cheif is the best as your sons all have. He also let us know he would be calling again on Sunday and they get to watch the Superbowel! I'm so excited!!! Can not wait to hug our Sailor!!! Congrats Moms!!!

Congrats to everyone.
Comment by NF Mom on February 4, 2011 at 10:25pm
My understanding is three ( 3 ) 065 Recruits were denied entrance to Battle Stations on both Wednesday and Thursday.    Two had yet to pass their swim tests.  The third recruit had yet to pass the Third ( 3rd ) Academic test and was set back into a Division two weeks behind to allow more study.  The first two could still pass the swim test, go through Battle Stations with another Division over the next few days, and still graduated on February 11th, 2011  if they complete both swimming and battle stations before that date.  I ask for names and attempted to write them down, but even if I was sure I had them written down correctly, and could read them, I would not share them here.  Feel free to private message me.

"Said that they really had a good chief, they lucked out with him"  We heard the same thing, at length.
