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:

Oh and why did they get in trouble, I wasn't informed on that!

Oh I was confused, I meant to tell you that yes he received all my mail and from his mom too the day after Thanksgiving. Thats the day he wrote to me and said he was happy to receive them all :)

Hello! Yes, he is going to fighter pilot, unless he changed his mind. I have received all his letters last week on Wednesday and Thursday :) They were several letters and I was so happy! What is your sailor going for? And how are you doing with him being away?

If I were in your shoes, I would let the parents go to the graduation and you go to see him at A school.  For one thing I know you two will want to have some alone time which you will not get with the parents there and then everyone will be vying for his attention.  If you wait until he is at A school, then you can spend your whole time smooching or whatever you want.  He will be all yours!  If you can only do one or the other...choose A school!  I finally got a letter from my son last night.  I've read it 4 times already.  LOL.  I hope you got one too!

I hope you get a letter real soon. The mail man in my neighborhood came really late yesterday. However, I got a letter from my sweetie! I am so happy!:) He stated that they had to clean during letter time, so the sailors had limited time. I am soo happy to have gotten a letter! :) I hope you get one soon, Michelle!

I haven't received any letters/ calls so far. I read on here that a lot of girls got letters today! However, my mail has not come in yet. I am going to check again in about an hour or so.  I'm excited!!! I hope I get something!:)

Have you received any letters yet? :)

Hi! Do you mind me asking what your SRs first name is? I was going to ask my SR in my letter if he knew him because I found our DIV 45/46 train together :)
