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 there! My son is Elliott. I got my phone call last week. It was wonderful and awful all at once. Elliott was very homesick, had been SIQ with dental work... Only 29 days to go. I can't wait to see him! How is Simon doing? How are you feeling?

Hi!  So glad to find another ship 14/div 292! My son left on the that when yours left?  And have you found out their PIR?  It may be too soon to know that...just trying to plan for the trip to be there!  How have you been doing since he left?

Chriss.  I know what you mean about hurting inside and out.  I am going thru the exact same thing. My son left for BC on July 16th.  We got a quick call saying he made it ok, but we haven't heard from him since. I worry all day and night..that he is doing ok. Not feeling too homesick, not having the MEANESt RDC (ha, ha!) and wishing I knew exactly what he was feeling and going thru.  He is the oldest of my two kids. Just turning 18 the end of April, graduating high school June 1st and to BC. I know exactly what you are feeling.  Hang in there.  Every day we make it one day closer to PIR.  Natalie

Thank you! Then his friend did end up in the 09/07 PIR! Woo-Hoo for him!

I have a mom lined up for the group...but keep others in mind as well as it might not be her PIR. Thank you again and I will let you know!

Chris, glad you got the call, I am dreading the good-bye and the wait for the first call, plan on my older son driving us as I don't think I'll be able to drive home, at the present just trying to make the most of each day, and to realize that even though I won't be there each day to make sure he is eating right and home every night, I will now be a Navy Mom with a new job to keep he and us positive, supportive and always ready to fly on the run to see him after he moves on from boot camp,  the hard part is that my eyes see a determined, accomplished amazing young man, my eyes see my baby, and with the love and support of other mothers we will do this and make our children proud of their moms.  I loved your poem, copied it and plan or hanging it on my fridge to remind me every day what my job is.  Take care and keep in touch.

Chris, my name is Karen saw that your son left yesterday, my son leaves Sept 11, just wanted to see how you are today, we and our brave, amazing children will get through this. I find it comforting to know other moms through this site who have done this, or are about to do this.  I plan on buying lots of kleenex.
