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."

Hello Moms! I'm  new to this group, but I'm a member of both BC moms and Beyond Bootcamp. My Sailor finished A school in Meridian earlier this year and is now at NBC North Island. I found out that it's the base where some scenes from "Top Gun - Maverick" were filmed. Apparently there was a premiere there for the sailors. That's cool!

Hi, I am new to this group.  My sailor just graduated from boot camp last Friday - January 11th.  PIR was impressive and I loved it!  My son is in Mississippi for "A" School now, studying for Logistics Specialist.  I am a new Navy Mom and I am interested in learning all I can about Navy life.  I would appreciate direction to learn about "A" school, and beyond.  What to expect, plan visits, etc.  Where can I read about it all?

My son graduates from A school in June. Does anyone have a  schedule? Thank you!

Comment by Soccer11 on September 18, 2017 at 7:54pm

I'm trying to find out information about Graduation. I have the date, I just need to know a schedule...what time does it start? how long does it last?, etc. I'm trying to determine travel arrangements as we may have to drive from New Orleans to catch a flight which is 3 hours away. Want to be sure to allow sufficient time to make flights. Thanks!
