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."

Welcome to our new members!!!  Please join me in saying, "Welcome aboard!"

Sorry I have been busy with our lives here and have been remiss in approving new member requests!  We now have 50 - YES 50 - members!!

Also, my son has been transferred from the USS Stennis; therefore, in all fairness I feel the time has come to turn over the reins of this page to another Navy Mom (or Dad)!

If you are interested in undertaking this responsibility, PLEASE contact me!

Thank you for adding me to the group. My oldest son is completing his third year in Japan, mostly in Atsugiand on the USS George Washington. Mid October will find him in Lemoore, and then it's on to Whidbey Island. I have one other son who is working on his bachelor's degree in math and a teaching credential. My husband is an army vet, I'm a former Peace Corps volunteer, and we're both retired teachers.
