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 "NavyHubby," and welcome to Indiana Moms!  I'm the administrator for the group. My son is a Nuke MM serving on the submarine USS Alabama, based out of Bangor, WA. He's been in for 4-1/2 years.  You're the first sailor husband we've had (I think), so you're extra special!

If you're near Indy (or willling to drive), there's a monthly informal dinner on the west side of town, in Avon. You'll find details by clicking on any 3rd Monday of the Event calendar (right-hand column). Please join us - and bring family/friends. From time to time, we also have regional gatherings in various parts of the state.

Be aware that August 13-22 (2011), Indianapolis is hosting its first NAVY WEEK, at the State Fairgrounds, during the fair. We'd love to see you at invitation-only events and help entertain or feed the sailors who'll be working that week. Please send me your name and email address (mine is to be included.

Jump right in with questions or chat. I think you'll find we're a nice bunch of folks and always willing to lend an ear to listen. Hugs! k.
