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:

My daughter got new orders and became attached to the USNS Comfort. I went looking for a group and found none so I decided to start one. I look forward to hearing from others that have had loved ones in the past or are now attached to this ship.

Why Comfort sailed south again

Comment by louielou on June 14, 2019 at 10:51am

Hi All,

My son has been assigned to the Comfort and I'm wondering if there are any others on here too. He's been in the Navy for 6 years but this is his first time being assigned a ship and being deployed.

Comment by Kabar on September 24, 2015 at 8:29pm

FYI...The Comfort's return has been pushed back to Tuesday due to the weather.

Comment by CDMom on September 23, 2015 at 7:14am
Hi Kadar we didn't get any info about the hanger. Our sailor said we would have to have clearance to get on base, but didn't tell us how.
Comment by Kabar on September 19, 2015 at 3:44pm

Just last night I received the info for the helo squadron's arrival at the hanger. I don't know about meeting the ship. Maybe you will receive your info this weekend.

Comment by CDMom on September 19, 2015 at 2:30pm

Hello, Anyone know the address where the USNS Comfort 2015 is coming in Sept 27th?  My husband and I are planning on coming to meet our son when they come in.  I sure would like an exact address.  Thank you all.

They are in Guatemala

Does anyone know where they are now? I got an email from our sailor last week saying they have minimal Internet. Blessings Dale (CD Mom)

Glad to see there is a group for the Comfort's new deployment on N4M. If you haven't already, "Like" Continuing Promise 2015 on Facebook...there have been a few photos posted. This is DS's first deployment. I know he is very excited to be a part of this mission.
