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:

Hey girl thanks for adding me! My boyfriend is on the USS George HW Bush. He is an AZ which is an Aviation Maintenance Administrationman. He has been in the Navy almost two years in April. They just got back from deployment a week ago after 7 months. It's been so awesome and a bit overwhelming at the same time! We are actually in the process of looking for apartments now. We were thinking Virginia Beach and Portsmouth but I think we have decided on Norfolk just because the location is so close the base. In fact I'm about to apply for an apt online now, haha. Right now I live about 3.5 hours west of Norfolk in Danville, VA, but I'll be moving there as soon as I put my notice in at work. I'm sooo thrilled though and very ready to be with the boy on a daily basis haha. I'm really stressed about meeting people too, I won't know a single person once I get there so I would love to hang out! Btw, I added you on facebook, my name is Brittany Langford! :)

I just seen your post on the Norfolk page.  My spouse and I live in Portsmouth and depending on which base your husband gets stationed on will depend on where you want to live up here.  About the job, I sent you a friend request so I could email you some info.  I don't know what kind of job you had in the past, but my company is still looking for one more person.  I am a gas meter reader and it pays pretty good if you like to walk and be outside.  If you can walk, at least 5 miles a day let me know and I will send you the info.  Find out from your husband what base he is going to be on and that will tell you where you want to live.  Traffic here is murderous and where you live isn't much better, there have been 11 homicides in Norfolk in the past 2 months so you have to pick the area wisely.  I have spoken with a spouse in military housing and she says it isn't too bad. The drawback is they take your BAH, all of it.

Looks like you are doing great. I am taking a more passive role on N4M to concentrate on personal projects. Good luck to you and you sailor.

Just click on this link and click JOIN.  We were in Pensacola for our son's OCS graduation. We were so impressed by the quality of the young men and women there.

Good luck.
