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."

Hi Jordans Mom. I'm Elliott's stepmom, Fiona. Our boys are in the same ship/division/PIR.
I miss my son more than words can say, probably the same feelings you are going through is the same here.
It's the not knowing and the lack of ability to talk and check in that's the worst for me. 28 days and counting. How you doing? Have you booked in any travel or accommodation yet?

Great to hear from you. It is nice to have found someone with the same ship/div as my son. Just waiting for that phone call, other than I'm here.

I'm so happy to have a friend to share this with! I miss mike so much, he sounded so tired and weary last night when he called. I just have to try not to think about it. But I guess he's asleep now for the first time since he left.
How r u?

Hi, yes I am glad to have found someone whos son is on the same ship/div as my son.  My son also left on the 17th,  I received the call that night and yesterday received the box, but still no letter :/.  Cant wait for that so we can book airline tickets, but I need to confirm the PIR date first. There is alot of great information on this site for PIR weekend.  I am doing as well as can be expected, Simon is my only son so it has been way too quiet around my house.  But as long as he is ok I will be ok :). How are ya'll adjusting? his siblings must miss him as well. It sure is a hard adjustment.  I wrote a letter to him last night and told him I connected with a mom and gave him your sons first name and told him they should look out for each other as I am sure they all are doing anyway. Well, we will have to keep in touch and I will for sure see you in 7weeks :)

Hello Jordansmom,  nice to meet up with someone who is on the same time line with our sons!!  Waiting for the letter to come soon, so I can write and send him phone cards. I am looking forward to touching base with you!

I'm actually doing great! Trying to stay busy. I do work outside the house & that is helping.. Yea. The first call, the "I'm here" call, doesn't last more than 15 seconds:(. Mine was about 10 seconds: "Mom, I'm here. You'll get my box with information in it within 2 weeks. And that's all I've gotta say right now. Talk to you later." They're moving them along like cattle because the RDC's have SO much to cover!.. Yes. A letter will come before a call, usually about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks. I think the boys' first letter writing opportunity will be Sunday, but it could be the following Sunday:(.. I'm a planner too, Girl, & it's driving me CRAZY not knowing much!!.. Have a awesome day!
