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 am a Registered Nurse, Proud to say I started my Career in the US Air Force. Im a Veteran, so I know somewhat what my 20 y/o son is going thru during his Basic in the Navy. Nothing fills you with pride more that to serve Your Country. And there is no better, safer way for your child to learn to become a Man. The military teaches them to be independent, manage their money, discipline, and respect.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
I am a Veteran of the USAF, was married to a Sailor, my Grandfather was in the USN, during Pearl Harbor, so when my son joined I was so excited for him, because this career fits his personality perfect. He wants to travel overseas. What better way to see the world. My son is a born leader, makes friends easily, swam water polo in High School, so he swims like a fish, so the Navy just made sense for him. My son told me about this website, he is in his 3rd week of basic
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

Hi Jannie. I got to tell you, I was so excited that you are on here. I have not seen many Moms from Cali here at all, and you are so close. I live in Stockton, which is only 45 minutes away. I was wondering if you were in Sacramento on april 10th.
Anyhow, Welcome aboard.
