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."

Profile Information

A little about me:
I'm 26 years old living in Tennessee with my five year old son Brandon, waiting for my husband to graduate from bootcamp.
I am here to support my
Spouse/Significant other
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
Patience. Everything in the military is hurry up and wait and even when it seems like things are taking forever I have learned to keep in mind that they do things a certain way for a reason. It may not make sense to my civilian mind, but that's the Navy ma'am!
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
When I was a little girl, my dream man wore a crown. He rode through the countryside on a white horse, slaying dragons and evil witches and saving damsels in distress and i dreamed he would send me a glass slipper as a token of his love. Now my dream man wears a dixie cup and dress whites, and soon he will be riding on a boat defending our freedom and twarting America's enemies and sending me his heart everyday as a token of his love. He is my hero, MY sailor.. and I am a Navy Wife. :D

Haven't heard. From reading on here, I do know that they have to be with a "Navy buddy" until they have advanced through "stage 1" of something in A school. Sorry not to be more knowledgeable. Don't know if it's different when you're married.

Wanted to welcome you to the AECF group. Looks like your hubby is just getting settled into boot camp so you probably have so many questions about boot camp, school, Navy life in general! We have a wonderful thread within the group called Wives Club and I encourage you to stop in and meet the other wives - especially if you are looking at moving to GL while he is in A school. He's going into a great rate with lots of schooling on the front end - please let us knwo if you have any questions.
