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."

Thanks Dawnsphoto, It's the not knowing that bothers me. I know my SR is doing well. His a tough kid (MAN). Did I say that? He'll always will be my baby. We have not decided what we are going to do for Thanksgiving. I'm thinking that well just stay at the hotel. They have a resturant there. It up to him. That what I heard, he might just what to take a hot bath and rest. I'm bring his brother and my husband. His daddy can go because he had to work.

Hi Dawnsphoto, It's getting closer. I'm staying at the Holiday Inn. It's across from the Mall. Where are you staying? I think you are the only one I've seen in our Division on this site. Have you seen anyone else?
Have you heard anymore from your SR? I've only received 2 the whole time his been in BC. No letters from him. He told me that his writing his GF and calling me. I have no idea how his doing. He told me that he will call me again when he becames a solder. Have heard anything?

You may want to make changes 3 and 4 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile).

What is your SR's rating (job/specialty) going to be? There are groups for most ratings and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend.

Take care and blessings to you and yours.

Welcome to Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). I look forward to sharing this journey with you. Be sure to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) for information on what to expect and to help you prepare for PIR. Start with the OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) and Arrival and What Happens at the RTC, and read 1 or 2 pages a day and then go back to them as you need the info. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
