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:

You all can have our heat and humidity but I'm sure you would have it if you were in your home states.  ; )  We are planning a trip out your way in Oct. to visit my son so I hope the weather cooperates. Any later in the year, snow and ice put the brakes on travelling.  Are there hotels near the base? Not sure where we would stay. Haven't gotten that far into the planning.  Have a great day !!

Thanks for sending me an invite to this group Keisha.  Hello Everyone!  I'm here on Whidbey with my husband who is currently deployed.  We've been here since January and I'm happy to see the sun is coming out a little bit more :).

Okay, I have a question. If I wanted to send my son a bouquet of balloons for his bday or something similar, are those allowed? Can they be delivered there? I would use his mailing addess if okay but not sure. Let me know.

Thanks  :)

Keisha - doing good thanks, nice to have group that I can come to sometimes. Is this an active group? How many are there that chat?  Hopefully the weather is great and not too much rain.  + : )

So, can this also be a site for moms of a sailor at Whidbey???  Did not find another group. My son arrived 2 weeks ago so he is still getting use to everything.

Are you all living there too?

hello there
Comment by megd on November 10, 2010 at 4:53pm
Hey guys - My sailor will be leaving Pensacola after he gets his security clearance and should arrive in Whidbey next month. Looks like there arent many active groups for this area (kind of a shock after the Pensa. group!)
