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:

A little about me:
I've been dating the love of my life for several months now, he was recently stationed in NY as a Nuke and is waiting to class up. I am currently in college finishing up my degree and waiting until i can be with my amazing Sailor. This is harder than i could have imagined and Im hoping i can find someone in the same boat as me who can help me through this or help explain a lot of whats going on, I've never had any experience with millitary things so its all very new and confusing to me.
I am here to support my

Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

Yeah, there were a couple tentative dates that of course got changed around. Originally it was actually supposed to be in May and last about 7 months, then it got pushed up and shortened to around 6 months. But of course they had to go and move it up to June (June 20 to be exact) and lengthen it (can't wait until there's a homecoming date in place, even a tentative one). We email each other every day, but so far no phone calls. He's said the service is terrible, but I also think the emotional aspect is part of it. When they hit ports we've been able to talk on Facebook a little bit, but so far the wifi has been too crappy for Skype. What about you and your boyfriend? Is he liking the ship (well, liking it as much as possible given the circumstances) so far?

Me too! I was supposed to move up there in February actually and stay until August (when deployment was originally schedule), then come home until after deployment but things fell through. So I'm more than ready to move up there now and so excited for it, but at the same time nervous about being in a brand new city. And I'm not especially thrilled about dealing with all the crazy traffic in Norfolk lol

I bet they know each other! From what I've heard most nukes on the ship at least know of each other. I love doing the 52 Things cards. Not just because he likes getting them, but just writing the letters about whatever thing is on the card that week is nice. That's great you'll be moving up there too. I don't know anyone in that area besides him really, so it'd be nice to get to know someone else who'll be living up there haha
