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:

We are not sure either..but our son said he would call as soon as he knows. I hope to get a call today about his plans. He said he would not be told anything until he get to Texas. Our son is really looking forward to moving on but he is also sad about leaving Chicago and making new friends....very hard to always changing at a young age.

I wasn't to thrilled about the wisdon teeth thing but he is 32 and he will survive. I have faith and no he'll be fine and a better person at the end. It's just hard.

My son did leave on 3/16. he got to bc and checked in and called me around 11:30. I'm in the Denver area. This past weekend, we did go through and move my 17 year old son into my oldest son's bedroom, and my 15 year old we rearranged his room since he don't have to share with his brother anymore. It was fun for Justin, getting his own room, but very sobering knowing why he now has it. I am so proud of my sailor, I can't wait to go see him at bc graduation. Right now, I am just waiting for his Box and his address. I did get some envelopes to put my address and stamps on that I will send to him as soon as I get his address.
