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."

Got my first email from the sub!!! fyi it is


Comment by mattsmom2 on April 18, 2015 at 6:07pm

Has anyone successfully sent an email to the sub? I was just looking at the instructions and it says to use last name for 2-name subs (Jimmy Carter use Carter). I tried and it failed. Was I just supposed to use oklahoma? or maybe hyphenate oklahoma-city?

I guess I could keep trying different names until it goes through. Just thought I'd ask first! ;)

Sewwnsow,thanks for the good news.we haven't had a chance to talk much

I'm new to this and read about emailing the sub in the sub moms group. I followed the instructions but it didn't work, address not accepted. Anyone have an idea what I did wrong?

Hi mattsmom2,

   Mine is a radioman but he tells me that he is rated as an ET.  I think the deployments are the hardest.  I am so glad to talk to other moms, it seems silly but it makes me think maybe I am talking to one of his buddies mom.  I know there are quite a few sailors on there but it helps me feel more connected to him.

Hi, myboy! We are in Indiana and wishing Guam weren't quite so far away as well. Our son is an ET/NAV on the OKC.

Comment by myboy on March 20, 2015 at 11:18am

Hello, I am new to this group but my sailor is an ET2 on the OKC and has been there about a year now.  I live in SC so I am struggling with him being so far away and out of contact and wanted other family members to talk to.

Comment by manicholl on January 1, 2015 at 7:21pm
My son will be leaving for Guam and Oaklahoma City 1/17. Any advise for phones and trying to keep in touch?
