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, we are from Waverly, il so not too far from you. We're you at the game last Thursday? My son is 20, dabbled in a little of school at LLCC and he finally figured out it wasn't for him. He is going to be a machinist mate on a sub. How about your son? I'm still waiting on that form letter, in the meantime his "box" sits proudly in the corner of my kitchen where I can see it every day ;)

Our sailor is a machinist mate and welder with submarines.  Best decision he ever made. 

We're trying to arrange a get together up in Springfield.  Keep an eye out.

Hi and Welcome. 

We are happy to have you on the Navy for Moms site.  You are invited to join either the Illinois or Missouri family page as listed below.  It is a great way to find families in your area and even help plan meet and greets. We also have some packing parties for our troops overseas getting together.

Looking forward to hearing from you in one of our groups!

Be sure and let me know if you have any questions!

PS.  Feel free to “cruise” my page and see if there are any other groups that interest you. One of my passions is supporting our deployed troops.  Check out and see if it is a group you may like to join.
