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 name is Barbara and I have two sons in the Navy. My oldest joined in 2006. He was on the Louisiana, but is now on the USS Michigan. He is with the Blue Crew. My youngest joined in 2008, he is a corpsmen. He is stationed in Groton, CT now. But he will be going back to NC soon.

Just wanted to connect with other families of submariners and corpsmen.

Here, here to a little Christmas cheer! Wishing the Gold and Blue Crew and their families a happy and safe holiday season and always Fair winds and following seas.

Good morning Ladies. Just found out Blue Crew. Is there a group on M4ms or FB? Thank you.
Comment by Johanna on August 23, 2013 at 7:16am
Hi Barb... Thank you so much for the nice welcome! I am so happy for my son, and we are all looking forward to discovering that part of the country. He doesn't know which crew he is yet. You have all been so helpful and I have created a folder w all your wisdom so I can refer to it as all of this moves along!

Are there any Eat Coast Moms here, or anyone on the USS Michigan?
Comment by NukeMom/MM/USSMichigan on January 5, 2013 at 2:39pm

Gold crew.  I'm not Penny, sorry.

Comment by NukeMom/MM/USSMichigan on January 5, 2013 at 11:48am

Hello everyone and I hope you all had a great holiday season.  I will be traveling to NY in a couple of weeks to help my sailor get across the country.  He wants to drive, but in the middle of winter??  What do your sailors do about housing?  If they're out on deployment, do they pay rent on an apt that's empty?  Is there base housing?  (My son in single.)

Comment by NukeMom/MM/USSMichigan on December 16, 2012 at 7:19pm

Today is my first day as a USS Michigan mom.  My son is finishing up ELT training (don't ask me what that is exactly, all I know is it has to do with the chemistry of the power plant) in NY and has been advised he will be on the Michigan.  I live here in the Seattle area so he's coming home, for a while anyway.  He says he is being forward deployed to Guam - I don't know what that means either!  I can see by reading the posts below that I have a lot to learn.  Gold/blue crew?  What's that?  This will be my sailor's first deployment; he is an MM3.  Any info will be greatly appreciated!
