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:

Balfour Navy Housing - Nautilus Park UGH! Not Happy With Them....

Posted on May 26, 2011 at 7:37pm 1 Comment

So frustrated with the base housing here, actually it is right outside base.  Our grass is almost up to my knees, they have only mowed it once and it's almost the beginning of June. Everyone here has small children, and I think they should mow the grass, because it is safer for the kids. There is no air conditioning, these hardwood floors are a pain to keep clean, especially with a one year old, and everytime we try to get a new light for the downstairs bathroom they say they don't have them…

Hello everyone!  We just got to pick our next duty station and it will be Kings Bay, GA.  Does anyone know anything about the area?  Thinking of buying a house or living on base housing for awhile/or apt townhouse...any advice?  Thanks a ton everyone!

How long should we wait for orders???

I'm sooo upset, my husband and I have been separated for 4 and a half months...which wouldn't be so bad if we didn't have a 5 month old baby at home. He went to basic then straight to BESS in Groton, CT. He graduated BESS Oct. 8th and we are still waiting for orders. They are telling us that it could be due to the fact that this is the end of the Navy's fiscal year so they don't have money to move us at this time.

The dilemma: My husband wants us to pack up the car and move…

Welcome to the GA group! You will probably love the area but it is almost more Florida so be prepared for some sunshine and warm weather!
