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:

She seems to be doing okay..she had a rough start though. She had her wisdom teeth pulled and I guess they bruised a nerve so she was numb for almost two weeks. She was put on a steroid and antibiotics. She had also got sick and since she is allergic to penicillin she had to take pills for 30 days. After all that she is still in pretty good spirits. Im praying that all goes well for them tomorrow with there PFT. My daughter didnt pass the run the first time but passed it the second time only by 5 seconds.

Hi Patrice, my baby is Angelique Roy..I did receive a call from her once on Sept 22 it was a 10 minute call that went by sooo fast.  She said she is doing okay but she had her wisdom teeth pulled and I guess they bruised a nerve so her mouth is still numb so she is on antibiotics and a steriod and they told her it could take up to a month for the numbness to go away.  Other than the issue with her wisdom teeth she said its okay but there have been alot of girls arguing one girl had Lice and gave them all a good

We have a Survival Guide for Navy For Moms Newbie (clickable link). You'll find everything you need to get started. Videos, PDF files of boot camp processing days, links to all the important groups plus tips on how to use this site. Keep in mind the videos and PDF files may take some time to download the first time you try it. It'll look like nothing is happening. Be patient. Best part is it'll be here on your very own page as a reference. Click the MY PAGE tab on above menubar to access your page anytime - you should do it at least once a day to see if you have any postings on your comment wall (like this one). Good luck.
