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:

A school

Posted on November 9, 2011 at 5:47pm 2 Comments

I was wondering what kind of stuff my sailor can take to A school?  Laptop, Ipods, books, etc.  Christmas is right around the corner and my son leaves Jan 5 for boot camp. I was thinking about getting him some stuff he could take to A school (knowing he can't take anything to boot).  Help?

I signed up to this site because my son is leaving for boot camp January 5.  I feel very overwhelmed by all the posts, photos, videos, chat groups etc.  Help!!! Can somebody tell me what I should do here to feel not so overwhelmed??

My son said he would be in Chicago for a week on hold til he went to Groton, then it was just a few days. He ended up 2am Saturday morning at Ohare. Once in Groton he was only on hold for a little over a week. He had a month in ACU (awaiting class up) after BESS. AA gives parents passes to wait with your sailor at his gate prior to flying out.

Thanks so much, Jackie.  I had been told that 079/080 go the same night, which can't be true.  077/078 can go with 075/076, but not 079/080. (out of order)  Hoping that more let me know so we can figure this out.  075/076 should be first to go.

Jackie:  Had to delete your BattleStations post.  We can' post dates for BS on this site, but you can post that you have received a date and offer to have others private message you for it.  Barby had responded that you can't post dates, but when I deleted your post, it took hers too.  That date sounds like it is correct from past BattleStations dates.  Looks like the PIR group will do them over 3 nights, possibly 4.
