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:

Good Afternoon everyone - exciting to hear about your upcoming Tiger Cruise - please keep OPSEC in mind and don't discuss specific dates/ship movement.  If you are unsure about info message each other in private messages.  Thanks!

When are you all flying into Hawaii? My grandson and I are arriving on the 12th in the am.

Comment by Bandmom on March 24, 2019 at 9:19pm

My husband will be on the tiger cruise.  I have claustrophobia so I will be at the docks in San Diego.  We recieved an e.mail today saying that we should receive the final itinerary by April 1

  Hopefully that is true.

kari67 - I will be on the Tiger Cruise as well!  This is our son's first deployment, so I'm looking forward to this opportunity :)

Comment by kari67 on March 24, 2019 at 10:29am

Bandmom yes I am going on the Tiger cruise and taking my grandson with me. My son has been onboard since 2015.

Comment by Bandmom on March 6, 2019 at 8:36am

Is anyone out there going on the Tiger Cruise?

Comment by Bandmom on November 29, 2018 at 8:43am

Hello Moms!  Have you all seen the reports on the Stockdale?  At least now we know where they were 2 days ago.

Comment by Bandmom on November 16, 2018 at 11:10am

I keep hoping to see my sailor, but his job is in a classified area, so I probably won't get to see him.  Hopefully you will see your sailor!
