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:

My son is going in as a GM but he is hoping for a contract for Special Forces so everything may change.  He leaves Monday for GL and I can't believe it!  :( He is my 2nd oldest son and we have been together (just me and my older 3 boys) since he was 6!!  It is really hard...

Just wanted to say welcome and hope you are hanging in there!  I am new to this site also and am a mother of 5.  Our other children are a great support system and so are the moms on here!  I have found so much info and received some great advice!

I see your SR will go to "A" School for Interior Communications Technician (IC). You have joined IC Sailors; you may also want to check out IC- Sailors. You may also find others with loved ones with that rating in Engineers, Snipe Moms, and Snipe Moms(enginers). You will also want to join Great Lakes A School Q&A and GL A-school moms. You can also check out the Training Support Center (TSC) Great Lakes Facebook Page. The Rating Information Card for IC can be found at . You will be able to enjoy extra time with your Sailor following PIR. (See PIR Day and Liberty During PIR Weekend.)
