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:

Hi there! How are you? Has everything been straightened out?

Did I ever tell you that we've lived in Lakewood, Idaho Springs, and Georgetown, CO? I think I really miss Idaho Springs...

Hi Momof5 - wow - 5 kids! That is awesome! I bet you miss your oldest! If yours is anything like mine you probably didn't see him much after HS graduation!? I have a 9 year old son at home and he misses his big brother so much ~ I have to be happy and not miss Drew so Ty will be okay with this. Ty won't write Drew any letters cause he says he will only say "come home". Besides the fact that in this day and age the military is the BEST decision any young man (or woman) could make. It will teach him to grow up in a way that we as parents can never teach them! So excited to see him all grown up!

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!!!
