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."

Also, I was going to share with you that this site is more old school and not as mobile device friendly. I have no issues navigating this site on my laptop, but for those using a mobile device, we generally recommend that your put your phone into desktop mode when trying to read or post.

Olivia - Welcome Aboard!! I am one of the "seasoned" members that helps out on the BC Mom and Loved Ones group. I had a notice that you have joined our group and I just wanted to say hi! I see your SO has left for BC. Even though many of our members are moms, we all feel the same emotions and uncertainty of what is going on at BC and we all have questions. The best thing to do is to go to our group page, scroll down past all of the information that is posted (you may come back and read it later), go past the discussions, and then you will see a Comment Wall Area. That is the best place to post your hellos, share a little about your BC loved one journey and to just say Hi. 

More of our members see the questions posted in the discussion area and are more likely to reply.

Welcome to NAVYforMoms.com!   

Head to “Settings” on the main page right away to add a profile image (no last names visible, please) and complete your Profile. Then - and this is important! - read these Community Guidelines and this Operations Security (OPSEC) Checklist, for the safety and privacy of all our Sailors.

Then jump right in!  Browse around the site and check out the groups and the information in their Discussion Forums.

Join this group for boot camp moms, where you'll also find a group for your Pass in Review (graduation) date; and this one for PIR Reference Information.  

Get a head start during boot camp by joining groups for, and learning about, your Sailor's occupational specialty and "A" School; and later your Sailor's duty station and/or Navy ship and homeport. You can also join groups for your own state, region or home town and interests from getting ready for deployment to care package ideas!

Please say Hi when you join a group, and feel free to ask any and all questions - everyone was new once, and there is no "dumb" question.  This site was created by the U.S. Navy just for you, and we look forward to getting to know you and your Sailor.  Welcome to the NAVY family - we're so glad you're here!!
