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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

Dagmar: Fire Control Technician :) and trust me, neither am I!! I learn more every day and know I will REALLY be learning a lot after we get married this summer, LOL.

Comment by Dagmar (Ship 03 Div 143) on February 24, 2013 at 11:50pm

Thank you ZAM. What is FT? Im not up with all of the lingo yet although I am trying.

Comment by ZAM's Mrs-to-be on February 24, 2013 at 7:50pm

Mrs. Coop: Yes Kings Bay GA and also Washington state have boomer bases, as well as Norfolk VA I believe. 

Dagmar: It's nice to meet you! My fiance is FT, but if you have any general questions about boot camp or sub school I'll be happy to help if I can:)

Kelli: That is super exciting, we will hopefully be joining you down there in August, we should know for sure in a couple of months. If we do I'd love to meet up!

Comment by Kelli_wife of JP on February 23, 2013 at 3:15pm

hi everyone, my name is Kelli. we will be relocating to our first duty station (Kings Bay) in June. I'm kind of nervous and excited at the same time. One of my best friends is already down there and I'm looking forward to seeing her again but nervous for our first deployment.

Comment by Dagmar (Ship 03 Div 143) on February 17, 2013 at 5:13pm

Hi everyone, My boyfriend is currently in boot camp and will be going to sub school afterwards. I was wondering if anyone here had information on being a missile techs wife/ gf that they would be willing to share. I'm very anxious during this time and I am looking for as much information as I can!

Comment by MrsCoop on January 16, 2013 at 12:32pm

HI, my husband has been fast attack for all his military career so far. However since we have had 2 little ones he is considering switching to Boomer as he heard its better for family life. Can anyone tell me which ports have boomers? i know of georgia and washington do but i was wondering if there was anywhere else?

Comment by ZAM's Mrs-to-be on October 15, 2012 at 11:32am

Anybody have suggestions for places to eat in Providence? I'm flying into there to visit my boyfriend in A school, and he said the one thing I need to decide is a place to eat when he picks me up from the airport! Any help/ideas are greatly appreciated!
