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:

Hi , Tina.... I'm sorry not to have given you a proper welcome to Indiana Moms sooner than this, but have been very busy with Navy Week.  I'm the administrator for the group, so if you have any questions, please ask. My son is a Nuke MM serving on the submarine USS Alabama, based out of Bangor, WA. He's been in for five years.

If you're near Indy (or willling to drive), there's a monthly informal dinner in Avon (on the west side) which meets on third Mondays. Click Sept 19 on the Events calendar (right-hand column) for those details.  From time to time, we also have regional gatherings in various parts of the state. 

Jump in with any questions or comments you may have. I think you'll find we're a nice bunch of folks and always willing to lend an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on. Hugs! k.

Thank you for the information. My son thinks we will be able to drive his car to Florida for him a few weeks after he arrives.  We are from NJ but have family in the Pensacola area so he is anxious to go visiting lol.
