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."

Planning to go to Bremerton after homecoming. Does anyone know if the only way to get from Seattle to Bremerton is via the ferry?

New sailor headed your way, USS Connecticut! He's ready and eager to join y'all. Fair winds and following seas to all of you!

Hi. Just found this group. My sailor got his hard orders yesterday to head to USS Connecticut. Wanted to see what we can expect. He will be heading there later this spring.

HI Freeasabrd -  My son has been on board for almost a 1 1/2 years.  He is actually home right now for the first time since then, and it is so wonderful to see him.  - we are from Connecticut.

How is your son doing?

Comment by Freeasabrd on January 3, 2016 at 8:21pm
Hello all, I am the mother of a son on board. I was just wondering if there were any other parents out there on the same sub.
Comment by IWix on July 11, 2014 at 7:13am

HI  - My son just got his "soft orders" for USS CT.  He is graduating "A" school at the end of August.  We are from Connecticut, so it has been great having him just 2 hours away for the past 10 months.  WA is about as far away as you can get from the east coast..  although having him so far away will be a big adjustment, this is another part of his life that will help shape the man he is becoming.  Now we start working on the logistics of having his car out there, what to do with his car while on deployments, etc.  If anyone has any tips, please let me know and I can pass them along.  Have a great day
