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:

ummmm, where to start? Yes, my son's A school was 14 wks. He did not start A school immediately after Basic though, he was on hold for a couple wks.  Not everyone gets leave after A school either, it all depends on what their orders are. My son leaves Wed. morning for Guam. He is not doing FMF @ this time, he choose to go to a duty station first.  My answers probably didn't help you much, but if you need anything else, ask away!  Good luck w/the wedding planning!!

What is "A" school?

Can anyone tell me what is "A" school all about? My soon-to-be-sailor is my 24 year old son, and he does not do well with communicating in letters. I am in Louisiana, and concerned with how much time we'll have to visit. SR Ray, my son said that he leaves immediately after graduation, but the Public Affairs office said that he'll have a few hours. Anyone with information on this? Ray is on Ship 07, div 109.
