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:

Hi Dylansmom, I think I remember you from postings on bootcamp moms when my son Matt was there, it seems so long ago already!!! He loves Gulfport and has made some great friends and has had some great experiences already!!! Thanks for friending me!!! Keep in touch!

He sounds great...keeping positive thought going his way.  He said one night, some of the recruits had a slight meltdown.  But other than that, everything sounds good.  He mentioned a recruit he met from Georgia who "was pretty cool"....AJ is one of the older ones there, so I think he's not as homesick as some.  No phone call yet. :(   Hope you get letters soon!!

We got two letters on Saturday!!!  So cute.  He sounds great.  Said the letters are about 4 days delayed....wants us to write everyday.  He only has time to write at night and when in church (no yelling there).  How about get any letters yet?
