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."

Curious how everyone's sailors are doing? It's been a long time. Clay became a FMF a Corpsman, is attached to a marine unit and getting ready to go out on his first deployment. Very stressful. Hope all the families and their sailors are doing well.

I sent a message but just wanted to make sure that you get it. Was wondering about the scarves. Is it too late to get them. Looking to get 2, I will be at the meet and greet so I would be able to get it from you then. I must have missed the post about them. Just let me know, no big deal if I cant get them.

Thank you

My daughter is in the same ship  and division. LOL. I received first phone call since her arrival to boot camp.She sounds great other than adapting to cold weather outside of Texas. She says she has a job assignment. Misses the home cooked meals, but  is hanging in there. She was saying week 4 will be weapons training. Looking forward to PIR. Good luck with your son too. She says she had passed her first test and inspection. She made me laugh saying she had shined her first pair of boots.Hope to meet you at PIR.

I found them at Hobby Lobby! There was only one style! I did get my tree up my husband knew I wanted a small one so when I got home from work and noticed he hadn't assembeled a tree he said that he had already been to Wal-mart he just didn't know which one I would want! So we went and got one after place the 2 "Navy" ones on and 2 ballerina ones for my daughter he pulled out our old decorations and completley unintentionally we ended up with a complete USA tree lol! It was funny how it came together!

Yeah, I received a 25min. phone call & 3 letters yesterday:). Has made my week :). She's doing well, besides her feet from the boots. :(. She has been assigned to Ship Staff. She's in charge of approving who enters ship @ salutes all officers & such, she also has ship watch 2-4 hours, & makes announcements about uniform of the day, not to mention clean the ship deck. She sounds really happy about having the job. Although, in her opinion some of the SRs still don't know when to be quiet so still getting worked pretty hard. Although she said the guys got worked really hard on the 14th. Guess, the dentist tried to tell her she didn't have her wisdom teeth pulled, but I know she did cause our dentist was surprised that there were no roots on her wisdom teeth. Said she hasn't been called back yet. She declined glasses but will get her eyes checked again after BC. Said she's making lots of friends & is friends with almost all the girls. So, that's about all for now so I'm in much better spirits now :) Glad you got a call as well.

We got a phone call, UNFORTUNATELY I was NOT HOME.  She called her dad and talked to him(glad he answered!  He usually doesn't if he doesn't know the phone number when he's at work)  He said she sounded in a good mood.  She said she was having "fun"  Leave it to my crazy girl to think boot camp is fun.  She wrote me a letter with a few kind of yucky things, like getting extra PT, a blister that got infected and something else and then says But otherwise everything is great LOL!  She is making friends in her Ship too. :D
