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."

I'm so excited that our loved ones will be home soon.  If you are unable to meet the ship in SD there is a webcam which shows harbor traffic from Point Loma and Coronado.  They usually zoom in on Naval ships.  It's the next best thing to being there.

The Pinckney men and women are doing a great job. I am so proud of all of them.

My son is also deployed on the USS Pinckney. This is his second deployment on this boat. We are so very proud of him and all of the men and women aboard the Pinckney! Making world news and doing tough work. Stay strong!

I am watching the an Diego webcam..  I watched a ship come through about an hour ago.  Waiting on the Pinckney now.  It should come in from the right any time now.

Hello moms,

If you ever get the opportunity please watch Carrier, season 1 and 2.  It gave me a better insight into what our sailors are going through on the ship.

Thanks, Clockard!

Comment by Tee Mill on January 27, 2012 at 4:07pm

This is my son's first deployment, too.  He's loving all the places they have been and things they are doing.  He is looking forward to getting back to SD, though, since he only moved there six weeks before deploying.  He's a country boy and has never lived in the city.

Comment by angelb2015 on January 27, 2012 at 3:52pm

I just saw the deleted comments in my email. I don't have a "god" image of  I just feel better private messaging to others any info that I'm not sure should be public or not. This is my son's 1st deployment so I didn't want to do something wrong. We're all in the same "boat"...we're there for our sailors and each other!

Comment by angelb2015 on January 27, 2012 at 2:55pm

OK, I feel so much better now! Thank you soooo much!!! <3
