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:

My son has been in Jacksonville since last Aug.  He lives off base.  His PIR was Oct. '14 in RI. 

We live up in freezing IL, and are glad he doesn't have to endure this snow!

azmom - that is going to be the best surprise!  He is not scheduled to arrive in JAX until early next year.  He's stationed in Hawaii right now and will be home for the holidays!  He has been in the Navy for over 5 years but actually does know a couple people already stationed in Jacksonville.  They have been very helpful so far.

Pam, did your son get to Jacksonville yet?  Will he have any friends from A School going there as well?  My daughter just got her leave approved so she will be home for Christmas.  I'm the only one who knows that she is coming.  She wants to surprise her Dad, sister and Grandmother.  So excited!

Comment by Pam on December 8, 2015 at 1:45pm

Oh good for her!  We live in Atlanta so have gone down to the Gulf Coast numerous times and have always loved the beach.  We spent a couple day sin Jacksonville and loved the beach there.  Looking forward to the next three years.

Pam, my daughter works in the control tower. She has only been there a week but is getting settled in and likes it there.  She loves being in the tower.

Comment by Pam on December 1, 2015 at 11:52am

He's a corpsman and will be working at the hospital!

Comment by azmom on November 30, 2015 at 10:21pm

Pam, what's your son's rating?

Comment by azmom on November 30, 2015 at 10:21pm

My daughter is an AC. Anyone out there with a son, daughter, wife, husband with an AC in NAS JAX?

Comment by Pam on November 30, 2015 at 11:29am

My son will be stationed at JAX NAS very soon!  Super excited for him!

Comment by geema3 on November 18, 2015 at 12:27pm

AZ mom. My grandson is in JAX NAS. His 1st room shared with another guy was much like a college dorm. Two beds, 2 Desks, 2 dressers, 2 closets, storage space, small fridge, microwave, one bathroom. He's now in a room by himself since he became a PO3, I haven't seen that one. Just assume it's just one of everything like the first room. No kitchen' in room. I think there were some common areas for TV watching, gaming, etc.
