Go to "Settings" above to set your Username.  While there, complete your Profile so you can post and share photos and videos of your Sailor and share stories with other moms!

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 daughter is in bootcamp, not my son! I got my call at 2 in the morning too,then you wait for those letters to come..they don't have much time but the letters are great, you just read them over and over again. My daughter loves boot, she loves the marching, everything!! says it was the best decision she made, she was accepted to all 3 colleges she applied to with practically full scholarships and then said mom, dad, I want the Navy, they offer me more challenges!! go figure! I got a call about 3 weeks in for a few minutes,, keep your cell with you at all times too.Just write everyday even with little tidbits about what is going on in your home,, he'll eat it up!! good luck and Go Navy!!
