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:

Profile Information

I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
Thinking about joining
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Needed to learn more about it

It is time to let go
Because my child has to grow
How can I keep watch on you now?
I will whisper a prayer because I care
I love you

As your mother I know what prayer can do
In sickness and health prayer brought you through
Ever knowing and believing that God will be there
I will whisper a prayer to show that I care
I love you

Where ever you go and whatever you do
I will whisper a prayer because I love you
and I care!

If he doesn't get the waiver, please make sure he know that it is not some stupid black, negative mark on him. Boys can be very blustery but most are more sensitive than you know. You must tell him that there are many doors to all sorts of adventures in life. If one doesn't work out, there will be others. Look for the silver lining.  Believe me, I have two boys - the 27 year old sailor (going on 35 so mature and responsible) - then there is his 23 year old mercurial brother who goes with the wind. That is why I have grey hair.

Haven't seen you in the New Members Stop Here group lately. How are you doing?  You know we want to know that you are OK.  And if there is anything we can do to help. He looks like a real sweet boy (man, I mean - well, you know what I mean).
