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."

A little about me:
4/9/12..I've encouraged my son's joining the Navy for about 4 years. Now it is time for him to head off for a life of doors opening for him and I could not be more excited, nervous, and most of all PROUD of him.

1/9/17.. Trey has learned alot and finished his 5 yrs in Japan on the BHR as Petty Officer 2nd Class. He just re-enlisted for 3 more years. He's in Norfolk now, and awaiting his next duty station at end of the year.

11/15/17.. Trey has a new job. He has come full circle.
He'll be an Instructor for Damage Control at the Great Lakes Training Command! I'm so excited for his next step, at will cover Navy years 6-9. Half his career is almost over. He should also be getting the results, soon, for advancement to Petty Officer 1st Class.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
I'm like a sponge. I want to learn all I can to feel more secure in this decision that my son has taken.
Our Navy experience so far...
is challenging and exciting.

Hi Brandi, I just got your message.  That is very sweet of you and your sailor to think of us in this way. The adjustment to  all of this is becoming a bit hard for me.  I have not heard from him for 3 days...of course while in boot camp it was weeks, but somehow knowing that I 'can " hear from him now it makes it harder :) 

My email is

God Bless you both...I love the family spirit in the Navy

Hi Brandi, just sent you a friend request, wasn't paying close attention to your message where you told me your son was a DC, guess I am slow this morning.  How does your son like his job? I am interested in the facebook, can you send me the info.  Thanks
