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:



**UPDATE 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

not exactly, i talked to every recruiter and the only one that would allow a commission for me when i graduate was the army and im not exactly happy with that lol. my first choice was the airforce then navy. If im going enlistment i hink i should just go navy that way my boyfriend and i could eventually be together maybe..when we get married. Im just happy i found someone else who wants to go into the military while their boyfriend is in as well. its definitly a tough choise but im looking out for what i always wanted to do.

Hi, I am sorry it has taken me so long to approve you for "MAS We Ship Love". I have been gone for 5 days for the birth of my grandson in Michigan. You should also consider joining "Molly's Adopt A Sailor" as the groups work hand-in-hand. If you go to the Molly's group page and click on "View All" in the Discussion forum and then go to page 2 and read "Are you new to Molly's Adopt A Sailor?" If you have more questions, please send me a message. Pat

Do you know where he's going to A School??  Mine is going to Groton, CT

I didn't get the call Sunday, he called his girlfriend, then she called me and told me some of their conversation, like I asked about who did he mention, but he told her he will call me next week, so I am making my list of questions,  I am feeling down, I told him to take care of writting and calling his girl, but I do miss him so myself, but didn't want him to worry about me.  Have you made plans yet where and when you'll be at Grad??  Thinking Residence Inn, I have a total of 7 staying so I need a 2 bedroom suite, I hope we or most of us stay at the same place,  great to hear from you,  I find it very hard to not say my son's name, can't wait to share his name with everyone, and to know your loved ones, names as well.
