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:

I see you have joined your PIR group; I also invite you to join Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) and to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) there. The Page, When Will the Recruits be Paid? and Information for Spouses, has important information for you. You may want to join Girlfriends, Fiances, and Wives of Sailors. Take care and blessings to you and yours.

Hello Sade, my son nice to meet you. My son shipped out on the 18th. He is SR Pangelinan. I hope they get to know each other. I will let him know I met you and here. I did not receive the "I have arrive" call but somehow he said that he was able to use the phone card I gave him before he shipped out. He said he had to use the payphone there. Hang in there I know your SR will make something happen. Keep praying and continue to be patient. This past 10 days was the hardest for me (as he is my oldest child) well until I got his call. Keep in touch. :)
