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."

Hi Deanna, I just wanted to say Hello and hope you are doing well. I haven't heard from my son yet, Was wondering if you had heard from your daughter. I guess maybe later this week I hope to hear from him. Just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you! =)

Oh Deanna, I wish I could give you a hug to help! (((HUG))) that's the best i can do. I miss my Mark a lot. We always chatted on my way home from work. But, it's still hard. Last night I was watching a special on the Fox channel and there was a scene from Family Guy that my son would reenact with me, it drove me nuts! The scene is Lois(the mom) lying on her bed and baby Stewie says "Mom, Mom, Mom, Mommy, Mother" over and over and Lois snaps and she shays "What?!!!" and Stewie says sheepishly "Hi". It brought me to tears. The only consolation that I give myself is that he is doing exactly what he wants, and I should be happy for him not sad. He also told me he didn't want me crying, he wanted me to keep remembering that he IS happy doing this and he doesn't want to be worried about me being sad.  I guess that's what I keep telling myself, he's happy and this is what he WANTS to do. It has helped me tremendously! Yes, the weather does not help keeping your spirits up! I hope the storm passes quickly and you and Lulu are safe! I'm here if you need an "ear"! =)

I can't say it ever gets "easier" but I think we learn to accept and adapt as time goes on.  I am currently spending the last two weeks with my daughter who is leaving for OCS.  I'm in Ohio right now helping her empty her apartment and move her stuff into storage in PA which is near our oldest son.  Then she spends her last week in PA.  I am very close to her so I am not handling her going away easily!!  And I've been through my son enlisting, my other daughter enlisting, and hubby and I moving away from all the kids.  But just knowing I won't be able to talk to Jenn or visit with her over spring break!!!!  Kills me!!!!  So that is one reason why Navy4Moms helps so much.  Just knowing I'm not the only crazy mom out there that has a hard time letting go!!!!! 

Hope you hear from your girl soon.  I live not far from Great Lakes RTC (at least until the end of July).  Keep in touch and let me know how you're doing!!

Hi Deanna! I have not received a letter, yet. I'm just trying hard to be patient and it's not easy. I have two boys at Great Lakes right now. I can't wait to hear from them! it must be awfully hard to not have your daughter right now. I have a 20 year old daughter at home and she kind of eases the missing of the boys. a six year old will keep you busy too! They are so much fun at that age! I'm sure she wants to take care of Mommy! Let her!

Hi Music Mom! my son is on the same ship and division as your daughter! My son plays the bass, so I don't think he's playing bass for the Navy. I hope to meet you at PIR on August 10th! if you need an "ear" I'm here! I miss my son tons. we have always been very close and it's been rough. I just keep telling myself, he's happy and that is what most important!
