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:

A little about me:
My 21 yr old Son has just signed with the Navy. I am also the Mother of a married Daughter. My family tree has very little military experience, so I'm very new to this.

To clarify everything a Recruiter says. We were given many promises that turned out to be completely inaccurate. My Son changed Recruiting offices and I feel better now, but really look forward to hearing from other families. I am very proud of my Son and excited.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

I totally understand about the girlfriend thing. My daughter has a boyfriend too; but thank God she always calls us 1st and now I'm just waiting for a letter from her. I've been writing here everyday and now every other day.... Does the girlfriend tell you when he calls if he does? We only rec'd one phone so far and that was her 1st week in because they were doing so well. They allowed 23 girls to phone home, which was a really nice bonus for them. My daughter sounded broken, yet obviously she was doing good because she got the phone call. Are you going to graduation? I'm going to do my best to make it there because from there she goes to Florida. Hoping that our kids are stationed in San Diego...huh? Well you have a blessed day and try not to worry to much, they will get through this. :)

Thanks Lisa! Thanks for the friend request. My daughter is on ship 3 Div 329, all I know is that she is suppose to graduate on Oct. 12th, 2012. How about your son, when does he graduate? Have you been able to talk to him or receive a letter. Missing my daughter a lot!!! But I trust the Lord has her well protected!

We have a Survival Guide for Navy For Moms Newbie (clickable link). You'll find everything you need to get started. Videos, PDF files of boot camp processing days, links to all the important groups plus tips on how to use this site. Keep in mind the videos and PDF files may take some time to download the first time you try it. It'll look like nothing is happening. Be patient. Best part is it'll be here on your very own page as a reference. Click the MY PAGE tab on above menubar to access your page anytime - you should do it at least once a day to see if you have any postings on your comment wall (like this one). Good luck.
