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."

It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

I have  daughters and 2 sons.  They are 29, 28, 26, and 24.  I also have 5 grandchildren.  The boy is 5 and the girls are 11, 9, 5, 3.  I was married to a wonderful man that served in the Navy.

It is nice to talk to someone else in the same unit.  But I think my daughter got injured and is now in a separation unit.  She hurt her back on Friday or Saturday.  They were having to run with their Seabags full of their stuff on their backs and she heard a loud pop when she was running.  I hope she is able to finish, but I am not sure.  Her husband is the one that told me this happened.  I got a letter from her today and she sounds very happy.  She is the Medical Yeoman of her unit.

Thanks for "befriending" me.  I have 5 daughters... no grandchildren yet, but I've joked that they'll all be boys.

Be sure to "friend" FireLeaderTeamWife, diannep, Lalaribbons and zStratMom - these ladies will be your primary support during boot camp. Hope you are doing well. Getting ready for PIR?

We have a Survival Guide for Navy For Moms Newbie (clickable link). You'll find everything you need to get started. Videos, PDF files of boot camp processing days, links to all the important groups plus tips on how to use this site. Keep in mind the videos and PDF files may take some time to download the first time you try it. It'll look like nothing is happening. Be patient. Best part is it'll be here on your very own page as a reference. Click the MY PAGE tab on above menubar to access your page anytime - you should do it at least once a day to see if you have any postings on your comment wall (like this one). Good luck.
