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 cameronleigh, my son was also stuffy with a head cold when he called saturday morning!  He said a lot of them are sick!  Hang in there, its difficult but then want them to succeed and pass.  I emailed family and friends my sons address so they can drop a note of support to him.  I have been sending pics of pets and family members to my work computer and printing them out in black/white on a standard size paper and writing a short note to my son for encouragement!  Trying to figure out creative ways to send my son a note or letter is kind of fun and keeps me busy!  Hang in there, you'll be hugging him in no time!

Thanks Cameronleigh, the address the the recruiter gave me was for ship 13. If you got your letter today maybe I'll get ours tomorrow but I hate to send it to 3 and he's in 13 lol.

We have a Survival Guide for Navy For Moms Newbie (clickable link). You'll find everything to get started. Videos, pdf files of boot camp processing days, links to all the important groups plus tips on how to use this site. Best part is it'll be here on your very own page as a reference. Click the MY PAGE tab on above menubar to access your page anytime - you should do it at least once a day to see if you have any postings on your comment wall (like this one). Good luck.
