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:

Romeogirl - try sending a "message to the group".  Look in the upper right hand corner and you will see an option to do that.  It will send a message to their email address on file - if they're still active hopefully they will respond.  

Also one of the problems is the creator of the group (Pam) has left N4M.  When this happens it doesn't allow the group to show up in the "Latest Activity" feed on the left side of the main page, so people don't realize there is chatter going on in the group unless they specifically look for it or are following it.  

An option would be for you to start up a new group.  You can always refer everyone from this page to the new group.  If you are interested I can help you with that.

My son will soon be on the USS Roosevelt so I want to join and know more about it, thank you!

Too bad this isn't a more active group, considering there are almost 400 Sailors on the Roosevelt.

Hi everyone, not much activity in this group. Hoping it picks up.

Hi everyone, with the recent events in the world, I am praying for the safety of our sailors aboard the USS Roosevelt. God Bless!

Jesse was deployed 4 days ago.How long before I might hear from her?

Hi everyone, I hope you are hearing from your sailors. I look on FB more than this site for recent info. From what I hear from my son, they are doing well. Two months down!! WooHoo!
Comment by Lydia on March 27, 2014 at 10:33am
Hello! This site is far from user friendly. Anyway, where in the world is the USS ROOSEVELT DDG80? Oh, how I'd love to know! Last I heard from my son, they had passed through the Suez Canal "without incident". Before that, he was in Croatia. Gosh, I hope they're safe.... I worry all the time and I miss my son more than I can describe.
