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."

My older brother is a retired Chief. I remember going to his boot camp graduation in San Diego, back in the 60's. I was just a child, so what I remember the most was all the white uniforms.

We think they will go on Th/F (overnight drill) 1/19th-1/20th. " I'm a Sailor" calls will come in on the afternoon of the 20th.  We also received W/Th 1/18-1/19 as a date from one person, but most have said Th/F which is the normal date that they start BattleStations for a PIR group. So we think that is the accurate one.

Sorry I did not comment sooner. I am still figuring all of this out. My SR would be laughing at me already. My son is standing really close to yours..I think. I am so glad to see him still with his unit. He was told he is color blind and has been removed from his Job. His recruiter told us he refused the other he was offered and may be coming home. My heart just aches for him. He had to wait 14 mos for a position to open and then it be taken away. So, I am now waiting to see what the plans are. Hope to hear really soon. Thanks for being there and talking to me. God bless You!

Yes we do plan on visiting him there my husband is orginally from FL. so he know the area fairly well and about 5 years ago had a job where he drove there weekly (over the road truck driver with a dedicated run) I went with him a couple of time and Pensacola was my favorite area! My husband and I both ride motorcycles so we have talked about having that be our "ride" that we make we try and do one big one a year (we went to BBB there in AR 2 years ago) and then some short ones with some friends! Spring break may be a good time for us to I just went from having a year round job in alternative education with the schools here to actually working at the school and don't get vacation other than when we are out of school! Are you planning on attending graduation in GL?

At 5:16pm on December 15, 2011, ProudOfGar said…

Yes, he will be going to Pensacola, FL. as far as I know!
