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."

Congrats on your son's promotion Tracy!   My husband will be graduating A school in two weeks...I've asked him about it because he will be an honor grad and first in his class about a potential promotion....his instructor said "no"..I'm thinking that he's too lazy to do the paperwork because he is known for his laziness :( how unfortunate for us :(

MY son was a Christmas baby,too! Except he'll be 20 on 12/24. My son's best bud from RTC and A School was an ET.

Hi Moms, My sailor is graduating "A" school tomorrow will then be an ET Petty Officer 3rd class. Probably be on hold until January, then he will start "C" School. We still don't know where. He is stationed in GL with his wife and 9 month old son. We are hoping to see them in December for baby's birthday (12-22) he is our christmas baby. Well Hugs and kiss and may God bless all.

Hi Moms, My sailor is still in school.  He graduated "A" school in April, then started Power school in June.  PS grad is Dec, then on hold anywhere u to 6-8 mo before starting the  6 months of Prototype.  THEN he will get to a carrier.  It is a long road in this NUKE field, but he says he likes it.  We look forward to seeing him in Dec.

 Hey All!!

 I cannot believe it is almost one year since my sailor left for RC. He is now stationed in Japan,serving on the mighty USS George Washington. He was an honor grad from A School so he received a recommendation for advancement to Petty Officer 3d Class when he reached the fleet. Last I know he was just waiting for his collar pin?

Hi everyone. My son just graduated A school and is now in San Diego for more training. He is so excited to get out of PCola and on to more things. He has never been out west, so this id all new. He actually commented how California has mountains! He has only seen those when we were driving from Florida to Ohio.

Thanks!  Yes, my husband is in Groton, CT for sub school.  I had a baby girl.
Comment by Val-ACD-(ship 12 div 034) on September 26, 2011 at 11:10pm
Are you in Groton now at sub school?    This will be a big move for your young family.  Did you have a baby girl or boy?     I pray all goes well for you and you adjust to life on the west coast -
Comment by Annie on September 26, 2011 at 11:00pm

We found out today that we'll be moving to Bangor, WA once my husband graduates A school (Oct.28).
