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."

My son is finishing A school in Groton and got his orders for Bangor, Washington, USS ALABAMA BLUE CREW

Hi Kaye!  My son Alex is also a "Nuke" (ETN) on the USS Alabama Blue Crew.  He joined in April 2015.  Good to hear from other Bama moms!!

My Sailor is assigned to the USS Alabama.  First duty station.  Will go out with the next crew.  MT3.

Mine is a MT3 on the Alabama in Silverdale.

I have a MT.  Not sure how long.  Roll Tide!

My son is a Chief on the USS Pennsylvania also out of Bangor, WA. He is a Missile Tech. He has been in the Navy 15 years and this is his 3rd sub.
Now I don't feel like the "seasoned vet" anymore... among all these moms with new recruits! Your tenure qualifies you to tell ALL of us how to deal with things. Thanks for responding... Kaye
Hi, my son Terry was on the fast attack sub USS Pasadena for 3 years (based in Hawaii), and they'd be out for 6 mos. Now he's on the USS Alabama. Since we live in Oregon, it's nice to be close.
Wow, Becky! My son is on the Alabama too (see my post above)... is yours on Blue or Gold crew? Drew is on the Blue. What does Terry do?
Fast attach subs go out for 6 months...boomers go out for 10-12 weeks
Melinda,
Hi, my son is on the USS Pennsylvania, he has been in the Navy 4 years, Steven is on the blue team
Sherry
Hi Melinda,

My son is on the same sub! Blue also!
