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."

Hi, "batmomof3," and welcome to Indiana Moms! Sorry to take this long extending our greetings, but I've been busy becoming a grandmother! Had to spend a few weeks with my sailor and his new arrival :-)

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 ALABAMA, berthed in Bangor, WA. He's been in for six years.

If you're near Indy (or willling to drive), there's a monthly informal dinner in Avon (just outside the west loop) which meets on third Mondays. You'll find the details for any month's dinner on the Events calendar (right-hand column) by clicking on any 3rd Monday. 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.
