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 school and Power School are at GC in SC.  Prototype will either be in GC or in Ballston Spa, NY

Welcome Nuke mom!  Expect your son to be very busy with school work, once he classes up.  The school is very difficult for most of the sailors, but encourage him, as he will need you to be very strong for him.  A school is first, then Power School, then Prototype.  Is he an MM, EM, or ET...the length of training time depends on what his rate is.

We think the date is 1/30-1/31 for them.  Calls would come in on the afternoon of the 31st.  If you hear differently, please let me know.

Doing ok! Really missing the boy! More than I thought I would.

Been stalking the mailman waiting for the form letter telling us his ship/division etc so we can write.

Actually, I've already got one letter done and ready to mail and working on another. I write sort of "diary style" during the day. I'll number the envelopes when I mail them so he'll read them in order.
