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."

Well, it’s OFFICIAL, my son just signed his re-enlistment papers 2 days ago to stay in the Navy for another 3 years! He’ll have Shore Duty now, no more deployments or long underways. Hasn’t been been assigned to “where“ yet, but should find out soon. So proud of him and his decision.

You may delete me from this group.  My son will be leaving Hawaii next year.  Thanks for all the advice over the past 3 years!

Most N4M are on the Hawaii Group. Come join that group!!!

Comment by Adam'sProudMom on August 25, 2013 at 1:09am

Hi, everyone! I've just been admitted here. My son is an MM Nuke. He arrived in Pearl at the end of May. He and several others were then flown to Japan to join their sub, the Cheyenne, which returned to Pearl a couple of weeks later.

This seems to be a pretty quiet group!

Morning everyone I need your help. We will be visiting your son soon when his ship gets in from deployment.

This trip is going to be expensive so we're looking for way to cut expenses.

I heard it's cheaper to rent a not so new (1-3 years old) car from small local rental places instead of the big name agencies.

I've also heard that food is a major expense. We will be staying somewhere we can cook so we plan on buying grocieries.

I heard there is a Sam's Club near Pearl but we may not need to buy in such bulk. A friend who was been to Hawaii many times suggested buying food here and checking it as luggage.

That what they did and he said the cost to ship is worth the savings on food. They packed steaks, shrimp etc. in dry ice in an ice chest. He said you'll spend several hundred dollar per week otherwise just to eat.

He also said do and go to the non-tourist things to save money yet have a great experience.

I would appreciate any input you guys have from your trips or anyone who lives there and knows better. Thanks!

Got to Skype with our son on Wed. twice. So good to see his face. Can't wait to see him in person. We pray things don't escalate in Korea to keep your sailor safe and on schedule.

Mighty quiet here...

Hi all,
Is anyone in Oahu looking for a car? Our son is PCSing next week and is debating on shipping his car to his next command or selling it in Hawaii.

It's a red Jeep Wrangler, automatic, with low miles, new tires and wheels. It is registered, tagged and passed all safety inspections in Hawaii. It does need a new top --- and has since the day he bought it but since he enjoys island life - he took the top off of it and never replaced it. The soft tops run about $500 new.

If anyone has an immediate need or interest - send me a message and I will get you the contact information

Apparently they are not except and must register.

Yankee Mom - Just finished a POA before he leaves for his ship.
