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."

Hello, yes, I received 2 letters in one envelope on Wednesday August 1st.  He said that they are really busy studying and memorizing for their tests, he had his swimming test on the 27th of July.  He stated that they are getting 4-5 hours of sleep a night and that some of them have made friends so that they have support to keep moving forward.  I was so excited and emotional, lol, I had a hard time getting to sleep that night.  Have you booked a room for PIR yet?  I am booked into the Quality Inn, places are filling up so I had to act quick, lol.  Time is creeping by and I miss him so much and yet I am very proud of him for this decision that will change his life forever.   How are all of you doing?  Hope all is well, take care and talk to you later!!

My sailor (now honorably discharged) lives in your area, I think.  Georgetown?  Just moved there when he was discharged in March to be with his gf and her family.  Tells me it is H O T out there....but I remind him that down here where he is from (Miami FL), it is pretty darn hot too!  :-)  He is in full-time school on his GI Bill (online) and looking for a job...with the "masses" looking for jobs!  Sigh....

Expect a letter in the late third to early fourth week.  They get to write in week three on Sunday at first.  After week five depending on how the division is doing they are allowed to  write letters on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  My son first letters that were written on Sunday came on Wednesday and I live in Midwest.  Usually it takes about three to four days to get a letter after they have been written.  Hope that helps.
