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."

Welcome to the family and congrats on your sailor! There are several groups for moms on Facebook that is a lot easier to use than this site is and we are a pretty talkative bunch. Join us?

Hi! My son is a DC stationed in Sasebo Japan since September. I googled the differences between a fire controlman and damage controlman, but I cant send you the link while on my phone. Just google each and read the one that comes from military.

Hi, well I got my son's questionnaire and I'm dying to know who his friends moms are he gave me last names but don't want to put on here since for safety reasons like they tell us inbox me when you get a chance I'm so happy because he talks so highly of them and he sounds so happy...

Hi Nigel's Mom,

We did get the call he called on my cell and my husband and I were both able to talk to him on speaker phone.  I work out of my house and my husband works an early shift at work so he is usually home by 2 p.m.........our call was 10 min and he called his girlfiend also and they had 11 min..........from my understanding other loved ones had 55 min calls from their SR.......but my son bought a calling card with 100 min on it and the actual talk time to Maryland from GL was billed at like 4 min so the 100 min card only gave him 25 min of talk time......I am going to send him a 1000 min phone card for the call after battlestations....I am so sorry you did not get to talk to your SR but I am sure it is reasuring that your husband did.....Zac is staying in GL also for school....We are going to Sarge's meet and greet on Thursday before PIR are you going to the meet and greet on Thursday?.....if so maybe we can meet?

He said their div isn't Doing good :( he said they were late to meeting, one of their recruits got lost and sent home, that a lot of people messed up on their first PT day,and that they march horrably so they get chewed out a lot. Hopefully they are doing better this week!
