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."

Sorry, I do not get on here too much anymore. We have a FB page, Ohio Navy Families. A lot of the Ohio moms go there and chat. You are more than welcome to come on over/in and chat with us there. I am thinking you are about to go to PIR or have just gone? My daughter is a Seabee and is in Port Hueneme CA. She just returned from her first deployment in July. Welcome aboard, or in my case welcome to land (she will not be on a ship, unless for transport/ride to one place or another) and the best advice I can give in to be patient and trust that the kids know way more than we will ever know. That was hard for me, letting go and seeing the growth.

Thanks for the Friend request. I hope we can be around for some time to support each other. If there is ever anything I can help with, don't hesitate to ask. Take care and blessings to you and yours.

Oh my sorry to hear about the little one! But let's stay positive! At least we know they are at a good place, they're taking care of them...and it won't last long! ( do you feel that sometimes 1 day lasts forever?It happens with me A

We only know how strong we are when we really need to be! And I know we can do it!!! : )

Take care, Dany.

Hi LaSue... actually I didn't! But I got a phone call from my husband. He needed some docs and I had to fax it.

But he told me that his division (336) was not allowed to write any letters yet...   : (

I'm hoping they will let them write this Sunday!

Do you have any news?
