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:

Hi Tucson Moms!!  I haven't been very active on this page. My son is stationed in Japan and has been in the Navy for 1 1/2yrs.  

Hi boocoo, I don't keep up with this page but I would love to meet other Tucson Navy Moms.  I know of 2 that I keep in touch with on a different page (Japan Moms).  If you have any questions that I might be able to help with, just ask.  I can also check with the other Moms on the Japan Mom site.  

Take Care!!

Just got home yesterday from Great Lakes, PIR. Our son graduated Friday Oct. 11, 2013 and went on to SA for MA A school. We just moved back to Tucson a month ago. I lived here for 30 years and all my family are here. My husband's job moved us around quite a bit the last 10 years and after our son graduated highschool and left for boot camp the opportunity came up to move back home. Timing could not have been better. We are very happy to be back in the Old Pueblo!!! I would also like to know about events for Navy Moms in the Tucson area!!!!

Her job is DC .. Damage Controlman. She got the job she wanted so she is very happy. She is anxious to leave .. hasn't expressed any reservations yet. We should keep in touch .. she leaves June 25th .. I haven't heard from too many moms in Tucson. I'm hoping to connect with other moms who have kids in her Boot Camp class soon.

Hi Evetnaz

My son goes to Sahuarita H.S. He is going to be an engineman, which is a diesel mechanic. He is very happy with this job.What will your daughter's job be? Is she excited about it?
