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:

"Happy Saturday! Chipmunk - Yes, for sure! I hope my daughter excels in all the areas she needs to succeed.  As a prior U.S. Navy Chief, I will be there to assist her in every step of the way. ☺"

"- Chipmunk, congratulations to your DIL!  That is a big accomplishment. I wish both your son and DIL continued success.  My daughter has a good year and a half to go, but I can't wait for her to take her first rating exam.  "

Hello!! I know this is terribly late but I want to welcome you to Navy4Moms and to the Moms of Daughters 2 group!! I haven't been as active lately as there have been several things going on with my family this fall and winter.  But I see you have made some contacts on the website and I am grateful for that. I loved reading your profile as I am also a Navy vet! I was stationed in San Diego and for awhile lived in Chula Vista.  I love San Diego and it will always hold a fondness in my heart.  I wasn't able to advance as much as our women sailors can today.  I served during a time when women were not allowed to serve on ships and it was very difficult to advance if you were in a seaduty rating with no opportunity to go to sea!!! However my middle son was a chief and just recently commissioned as a chief warrant officer 2.  My oldest daughter is a LT and recently transferred from NFO to Aerospace Experimental Psychology. Her twin sister is also a Navy vet as is my husband.  We are a Navy Family!!!  

If I can help you in any way, please don't hesitate to reach out!!

Welcome Aboard. I have to scoot to bed, but I wanted to say hi, so you could easily reach out to me as well. Be sure to come join us in the Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) - Navy For Moms ( - Group. When you go to the group page, scroll down past the information, past the discussions and then you will find the comment wall. That is the best place to say hi and introduce yourself.

Welcome to!   

Head to “Settings” on the main page right away to add a profile image (no last names visible, please) and complete your Profile. Then - and this is important! - read these Community Guidelines and this Operations Security (OPSEC) Checklist, for the safety and privacy of all our Sailors.

Then jump right in!  Browse around the site and check out the groups and the information in their Discussion Forums.

Join this group for boot camp moms, where you'll also find a group for your Pass in Review (graduation) date; and this one for PIR Reference Information.  

Get a head start during boot camp by joining groups for, and learning about, your Sailor's occupational specialty and "A" School; and later your Sailor's duty station and/or Navy ship and homeport. You can also join groups for your own state, region or home town and interests from getting ready for deployment to care package ideas!

Please say Hi when you join a group, and feel free to ask any and all questions - everyone was new once, and there is no "dumb" question.  This site was created by the U.S. Navy just for you, and we look forward to getting to know you and your Sailor.  Welcome to the NAVY family - we're so glad you're here!!

And Thank You for Your Service!
