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, wanted to welcome you to the AECF group.  I see your daughter is still in boot camp so i hope your letters have started to arrive that certainly makes things easier.


Expect her to be at GL for about a year from school and then she will move to another state for C school.  Length and location is determined at the end of her A school.  She will find out towards the end of boot camp if she has been assigned to ET or FC but both are great rates with lots of schooling on the front end.


Our group is a busy one, don't hesitate to ask questions.

Hi alwaysdaddyltlegirl,

My daughter in ship 03 div 081. Your comments give me hope my daughter is ok and I will get a phone call soon.  She did mention in her letters that everyone was sick and she had to spend some time in bed.   Thank you.

I was just in GL for son's grad 12/22, and from the little I could see through all that snow, all is well. It's a beautiful base and the recruits are well taken care of.  My son came down with pneumonia and he was taken care of immediately.  Their biggest complaints are getting yelled at (lol), folding clothes, and missing their families and cell phones.  Try, if you can, to go to your daughter's graduation.  It is awesome!  Use this web site as much as you can; it's a life-line and wealth of information. Join groups. My son is now "on hold" at his A School in Pensacola.  He has his phone, just a few roomates, new friends and a little liberty.  The military know what it's doing in turning our babies into fine, young soldiers.
