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."

Hi, "Kayla," and welcome to Indiana Moms! Sorry to take this long extending our greetings, but I've been busy travelling!  I'm the administrator for the group, so if you have any questions, please ask. My son is a Nuke MM serving on the submarine ALABAMA, berthed in Bangor, WA. He's been in for six years.

Please be aware that there's a monthly informal dinner in Avon (just outside the Indy's west loop) which meets on third Mondays, and to which you're always welcome! You'll find the details for any month's dinner on the Events calendar (right-hand column) by clicking on any 3rd Monday. From time to time, we also have regional gatherings in various parts of the state.  For instance, just today there's a picnic up near South Bend!

Jump in with any questions or comments you may have. I think you'll find we're a nice bunch of folks and always willing to lend an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on. Hugs! k.

Ok, that helps me figure it out! Thanks!

So July 3 was a Tuesday. And I am thinking he meant the week they were starting was week 4. As opposed to the NEXT week--- July 10 which I think is week 5? I am just trying to track what they are doing each week. It helps me to imagine it.

Kayla, I have a question. Do you know what week they are on? I know it is not calendar weeks and I think their week starts n Tuesdays. According to my calculations they should be starting week 5 this Tuesday. Is that correct? Week 5 is "hell week"

Welcome to!!

I hope you get all the information here you are looking for.  Please stop by the Survival Guide for New Moms for some of the info to start with.  
If you have a new Recruit and need phone cards for them please check out Calls for and get them for FREE.  I feel that the Family, Loved Ones, nor the Men and Women of our Armed Forces should have to pay for phone calls from Boot Camp.  The link above will take you to the website to send the email for the FREE phone cards if you need them.  Please spread the word if you know of anyone who can use this great service!!!

My Amazing Call Today

Posted on July 2, 2012 at 8:00pm 1 Comment

I live in IN and if anyone knows we had a horrible storm come through and it knocked out a lot of people's power. It was hard keeping my phone charged during that time but I managed by staying with my G-pa who had a generator. I patiently waited for my call to come through and I was happy to hear from my sailor in boot camp. He sounded so good and we talked and talked pretty much like we were catching up. Apparently from his last letter he was talking about moving the date up (I thought he…


Letter Day Today!!!

I finally got my letter from Sean. I'm so happy he's doing so well and hearing that he misses me as much as I do him. He says his RDC is relaxed. He likes the other Recruits. I'm surprised because he wasn't the best people person lol!!! I'm glad he's found people. He passed his PFA 21 passed from his division out of 73. Since he passed he'll be E-2 now! I'm so proud of him. Of course hearing him say how much he misses me and loves me is reassuring.

Of course when I see him he'll…

Name's Kayla. Boyfriend Sean is in boot-camp right now. We both decided this path in Sept. and surprisingly no regrets yet lol. We've been together about a year and a half. He's in boot camp so what am I doing with my life besides waiting for a letter most the time. I'm applying for a job and starting my sophomore year in college for my communication arts major in Aug. Sean and I hung out almost everyday that's if his video game addiction didn't get in the way. The time away from him can be…
