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:

A little about me:
I am a single Mom. I raised my son alone for 10 years. He turned out very well & I am very proud of him!
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it


Today is a real struggle. Everyday since Thursday has been, but this morning seems real tough. Sitting here alone & planning to attend a big family get-together today wishing Jordan could be there with me! Knowing full well I will be asked "how ya doing?" And that will only bring on more tears!

I'm not sure I understand you.  You typed something wrong.  Please explain some more.  Send me a message instead of a comment.  Everyone can see comments, they can't see messages.

Hello, I was surprise to see other 3/300 love ones & I noticed you had a picture of "Jordan's Bootcamp".  Is this really 3/300 division in this picture? 

Missing my son terribly, but I know it's almost the end of BC.  This too shall pass.

Good morning, I saw your comments on the 9/09 pir group and wanted to ask about where you are flying into for pir.  Is that cheaper than ohare, is it closer to great lakes? We are flying from vegas and on a tight budget so I am looking for pointers.  You renting a car?

Good morning Juleslynn. Thanks for friending me. We need to stick together. My son left on Monday. I'm a WRECK!!! I had to get up this morning for work and could hardly drag myself out of bed! I just wanted to stay there and cry all day! Forget fixing my hair and doing make-up. I just dont have it in me. I know what you mean about hearing "how ya going?" all it does is make me cry. Hang in there! I will check in from my work computer. We WILL get thru this right????
