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:

Saying Goodbye to my Son as he leaves for Bootcamp

Posted on February 19, 2011 at 8:00pm 7 Comments


I hugged my "little boy" goodbye

He hugged me back and said, "Mom, don't cry."

I couldn't bare to walk away

I didn't let myself look back that day

His car was still parked in the drive at home

In his room were his keys and treasured cell phone

There sat his abandoned x-box and video games

Without him here nothing will be the same

No yelling for him to turn the "music" down

His hundreds of CD's are just sitting…

Hey there!  Awesome, that would be cool to be a cook for the Navy!  How long is his A-school?  Our route is a bit longer, my husband is undesignated for now, and then as soon as he gets citizenship can apply for something else...because he has to have citizenship for what he really we have a long road, but we know it will work out!  It might just take some time!

Hey there!! My husband is in DIV 132 also, and is also going to A-school across the street in Great Lakes.  What is your loved one going to be doing?  From what Max said, their whole division leaves RTC Saturday for wherever, so it sounds like we will have a lot of time with them since they are just going across the street!!  I can't wait to see him!
