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."

My son graduated in September, I remember the most exciting time was during the pass in review (PIR) ceremony, when the "garage door" opens up.  The crowd goes WILD!  

If you have any questions, I'd love to help.  I'm a Navy veteran myself. 

Please like my group on facebook LINK, I'm just starting out and would love the support.

I also support “calls for recruits” from products sold on ETSY if you order soon I ship next day! 

 

If you are traveling, wishing you a safe journey.  

If you can't travel; be sure to watch the video link, it's the next best thing.

You still need to make changes 2 and 3 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile). Click on the link and the page will open in a new window. Read the Page and follow the directions to make the changes in numbers 2 and 3.

I suspect your SR will be an EM. There are no groups for just loved ones of Electrician's Mate (EM), but you may find some in Engineers, Snipe Moms, and Snipe Moms(enginers). You will also want to join Great Lakes A School Q&A and GL A-school moms. You can also check out the Training Support Center (TSC) Great Lakes Facebook Page. The Rating Information Card for EM can be found at https://www.cool.navy.mil/enlisted/rating_info_cards/em.pdf. You will be able to enjoy extra time with your Sailor following PIR. (See PIR Day and Liberty During PIR Weekend.)
