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:

Profile Information

A little about me:
I am now a proud mom of a United States Navy Sailor! He was in Ship 6 Division 931 and has moved on to San Antonio Texas, Lackland AFB for his A School training a MA (Master at Arms). It has been a journey that I am so glad to be a part of. The experience is unbelievable and what a difference it truly makes in them.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

Hi Proud Mom, I'm more than happy to pick your son up from Travis and give him a home cooked meal or a place to hang out for awhile if he's missing home. Send me a message and I will give you my phone # to pass on to him.

You do not have to send a penny. A group of my girlfriends and I have already gotten all of the things and are putting the basets together today. All you need to do is give me his first and last name and any special message you would like on the card. I will be delivering them tomorrow around 5ish just after chow. I am glad to know that he has a supportive mom and it's the least we can do for men who are willing to stand for our freedom. With out these men and women my kids would not live a free life. If there is anything else I can help you with please let me know, I am here!

My son is on Ship 6 Div 931 also. Sophie is my dog :-)
Looking forward to PIR on 18 June also. I haven't gotten any phone calls, but I did get 2 letters. His girlfriend keeps me informed and she gets the calls :-)~
My daughter just graduated from high school and she misses her brother a lot.

Hi Traci. A couple of things. Since your son will be near San Antonio for A School, you may want to join the group San Antonio MA's. I put a "Break down week by week" on there and update it as people note changes, so it may help you to know what to expect. My Sailor is loving being an MA.

Another thing, since you have pictures on your My Page, please consider changing you Privacy settings to Members or Just My Friends. As you have your settings now, anyone with access to the web can visit your page. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
