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."

Anyone have a sailor on USSGW currently on mini deployment?  I'm trying to find info on when they will dock in Norfolk. I haven't seen my sailor in 2 years and have to drive 8 hours to Norfolk but I'll move a mountain to see my daughter again.  can anyone help me find out what dates they will dock in Norfolk?  I heard Dec 18th.  I'd like to be on the pier when they arrive.  Can anyone help?  PLEASE!

This is not as active as the USSGW sailors group  I have no idea on the ombudsman - I believe that needs initiated by the sailor

Good morning, my son's squadron will also be joining the USS George Washington and I am wondering if this is an active group during their travels?
I would very much like information as to reaching their ombudsman to be added to the contacts & email listing. Any assistance is much appreciated!!

My Daughter will be joining the USS GW very soon.  I think they are flying her group out to Guam or Australia to meet up with the GW.    She is so excited what a fabulous time for her to be joining the Navy.  Air Craft carriers are all on the move and she gets to travel around and see the world... that is why she joined the Navy after all..   Cheers to you all !!  She is going sightseeing in Toyko today hopefully she will take some cool pics to send back to MN!!    The Time Change is taking a little bit to get adjusted to-  Best time i can text her is when I am getting up in the AM.    Thanks!
