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."

it is hard but you have to be tough for them.. when I started getting all mushy the day my son left for boot camp I had to walk away. I didnt want to loose it in front of him. maybe one night you can let the girls pick a theme or even their favorite dinner and revolve around them...your son might understand trying to keep them included in everything and not all the navy. if he knows it makes you somewhat emotional it might be a good change for everyone. to relax and concentrate on the girls . when i would get FUNKEY as my son called it he would want to leave and not see me get upset. every child is different but hang in there,,,,he will need your support. be posative this is a good thing for him. he wanted to go in the army,,,so i thank god he joined the navy.

welcome to the group. parts of boot camp will make you cry...but your son will
learn to appreciate everything he had at home and you will both respect each other in a different manner. you for what he can achieve if he wants to and him for you raising him and supporting him.
so far my son has been in about 1 and 1/2 years and his attitude is so much better and he finally has goals that he is really shooting for. have everyone at home ready to write,,,write ,write,,,they need the encouragement to keep going in boot..... karen
