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 got it wrong - he is going to the uss connecticuit. So, I won't stay in this group - but will keep all of your sailors in my prayers.

Hi Heebsmom: He served on the Pennsylvaina before. Re-enlisted. Maybe they will serve togther. That would be a wonderful blessing. There is a group Bangor/Bremerton/Kitsap Sailors and Family and they were a great help with many things. Not too acive lately. You'll want to ask Mark is is a local and incredibly helpful. Our sailor rented, and used the resources at the base - I think. I have to warn you - I don't know very much - our sailor would get an award for the shortest conversations on record, as well as taking security to the maximum level - I know next to nothing. There is also a WA/OR mom's group that are very active.

Our sailor (Nuke) will be joining the Seawolf this fall. He has been in ten years, and his family live in Poulsbo. They have two girls (17 & 4). Looking forward to getting to know everyone. Praying for your sailors.

Thank you Pat! 

That information helps a lot.  It seems to be an unpredictable boat but drydock sounds lovely!

Comment by ChitownPat on January 24, 2011 at 7:24am
Hi Bess-My sailor has been there since June and still hasn't gone out on the boat since it is in drydock.  No word as to when it will be deployed but that is fairly typical.  He did go out with the USS Conneticut for a brief time. Make sure you get the name of the ombudsman for the Seawolf.  She can give you a lot of info.

Hi Everyone!  We just received our orders and my husband will be on the Seawolf.  I was wondering how often deployments are and for how long.  Thanks!

LuvASub-Welcome! What's your sailor's name and duty on the sub? My son has been in Bremerton for 2 weeks so is also a nubie. I can pass his name along and he can look him up. Make sure that he gets the name of the ombudsman for the Seawolf. She can be a big help to you.

My son is enroute to Bremerton for is assignment as a nuke tech on the Seawolf. His name is Bill and he's from Chicago.
Comment by Martha(timsmom) on September 21, 2009 at 7:19am
Congratulations are in order!! What a special day it will be on Fri. You certainly must be proud. My son is just starting his quals. Hopefully he will be there too someday.

Hi, Seawolf Moms! I'm a USS Alabama mom, but just discovered a great series of articles about your boat in Stars and Stripes magazine (online). They're by a journalist who spent a week on board the USS SEAWOLF (link).

Also, for those who Facebook, there's a great site you might become a member of: Submarines. As a member, your wall will receive notices of interesting articles about subs, from across the web.

Thanks for letting me interrupt! k.
