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...:) His division had full liberty (thank God). W e were able to see him Fri. (after PIR), all day saturday and sunday. Now friday after PIR... he was supposed to return to the base at 9:00pm, but he had to stand watch and needed to be back at the base by 7:00. They all need to stand watch once during liberty weekend (my son volunteered for that time so he could get it over with..) Also, on Sun, he called at the crack of dawn and said liberty had been moved up an hour and we had to hurry up and come and get him. But that also meant he had to be back an hour earlier. Everything changes at any given minute. He didnt have to fly out of BC until wed. We could have stayed but we had other family with us and they needed to get back for school. Also, if we stayed it wasnt guaranteed we would see him as he had jobs to do on the base. Feel free to ask me any questions. I moderate two PIR groups on this site and try to answer all questions pertaining to PIR...before during and after...ttyl--JAN

Hi---i talked to my son today and i remembered to ask him about your

He said that yes, they 'kind of' get a choice between FT, ET, and  STS (or whatever it is)

He told me that they get to write down there pics in order of preference, then depending on what is available and in higher demand in the Navy right now, is what they assign them to. I think it also depends on how well they perform in their schooling. I remember his recruiter telling him that he may start out training for FT, but if he seems to struggle at all (i guess its really hard) then they will train him for ET (which is also hard, but a little better i guess) i hope your husband get what he originally wanted...good luck---JAN

At 11:22am on February 24, 2011, janlee said… not sure I can tell you that my son went in thinking he was going for FT, but hes only been there for two weeks and  the last time we spoke to him...he said he was going to be an ET. I know that each of these rates is just a little more in depth than the others and require a little bit more schooling. I didnt get a chance to go into any detail with him about the rate change, but i will be sure to ask him about it when he calls...which im hoping is today..:))

Oh my haha! Yeah, I live in FL, so DEFINITELY not driving. Ugh...there's no way I would be able to sit still for that long. Besides, I love flying, so it's really perfect :) I'm super excited! Only 18 more days <3
At 11:48am on February 20, 2011, frandrea<3 Ship 12.Div 93 said…

Yeah, that's what I'm trying to tell myself. I know he's busy, I'm just worried ugh!

I'm glad they are having more "fun" up there haha :) I'm so excited about their pictures omg! I can't wait to see how freaking gorgeous he is in his uniform!

I'm flying out Thursday the 10th. You?

At 11:11pm on February 19, 2011, frandrea<3 Ship 12.Div 93 said…

Yeah I'm definitely enjoying the steady letters, but I didn't get one today which he should have mailed on Tuesday and another woman who's husband is in the same division got a letter today, so I'm a little worried. Trying not to be, but you know how that goes...Did you get a letter today?

He's doing really well though. His division got two flags, he's passed all of his inspections perfectly, passed all his tests, passed his physical fitness assessments and he's been nominated along with one other SR to be the division's honor graduate! So yes, he is definitely doing well!

I just can't wait for this whole thing to be over with. I can't wait to talk to him and hold him and love him like crazy! :) 19 days! <3
