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."

Our group is so quiet now. I hope you are all well. My Sailor got his orders too. He got his first choice and will be stationed in Norfolk, VA. He is coming home for 15 days and then off to CA for some more schooling, then heads to Norfolk mid Nov. His fleet is on deployment at sea so we are waiting to see if he will be deployed with them since they aren't due back until the end of this year. Of course my Sailor wants to go out! He is doing so well and seems to really like being in the Navy. You all sound well too. Glad to hear it and congrats to all of you!

Yeah for our Division 233 boys that went to Ceremonial Guard Boot Camp together. All three drilled out together today! Robsproudmom and I can now breath a sigh of relief!

We drove to Gulfport Friday to spend the weekend with Justin. Got there about 11:00 pm with plans to pick him up at 9:30 am since he had watch til 5:00 am. He called me at 6:30 am to let me know that everyone lost liberty privileges because a handful of sailors got in trouble for underage drinking. We didn't get to see him and ended up driving back home Saturday. We were all so disappointed. :(
Comment by Robsproudmom on August 30, 2010 at 9:38pm
Yeah Rob called today and told me he is drilling out tomorrow.....Then he will officially be a Ceremonial Guard.....

Congrats Robsproudmom. It looks like I will get to see my son next weekend also. He graduates A school on 9/3. Any word from any of the rest of you moms on where your sons are headed?
Comment by Robsproudmom on August 25, 2010 at 11:31pm
Yeah My son has just passed Lockers and Robinson and Jackson are right behind him on their test. I am so proud of our boys from Div 233....They have made us proud at ceremonial guard school...Tomorrow he takes his proficiency and then drills out. Looks like i will finally get to see him again next weekend. I sooo can't wait...

I heard 50 out of 70 guys got their verbal orders last week. None for us as of yet. Hang tough Teresa your right....he is doing this for himself and his boys. Don't let her get to you! Take care.
Comment by Carolinagirl125 on August 11, 2010 at 10:07pm
Good evening ladies. Anthony got his orders today. He is going to Washington State for 2 years. Good and bad. He gets to move up to E3 in 6 weeks, which means more money but he is moving from the bottom right hand side of the US to the top left hand side. Could he possibly be farther away and stay in the US? The ex-wife accused him of choosing his career over his family. I just want to strangle her but I'm holding myself back because of my grandsons. She knows she has the power to keep us from seeing them, especially now that my son will be so far away. Selfish $@#%$&^! He is doing it FOR his family. Sorry but I had to vent. Miss you guys. Can't wait to hear where your sailors are headed.
