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 am a 25 year old RN who just got engaged to the love of my life. He just went to Great Lakes on September 5th for boot camp and I'm missing him like crazy. I never expected to be a military wife but I'd do anything to be with this guy, including uproot myself for him and go anywhere the Navy sends us.

Unless you have already found it, I have to add you to the group.  Let me know your facebook name and I'll gladly have you added to the group!

That is GREAT!  I'm doing well.  I did have moments of worry and fear, but the voice of reason spoke up the loudest.  I know my son is working hard, hating life right now, but he is exactly where he wants to be.  II notice you are an RN...I am too!  I'd like to invite you to a facebook page for PIR 11/2.  It's a great, positive, upbeat group you may enjoy!  Do you have a FB page?

I can't believe you've been waiting this long for his letter! Did you try contacting his recruiter at all? It seems like an awfully long time to wait. I'll lose my mind if I go that long! I have so many letters to send out!!!
