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."

got news tonight that my son has finally received the letters i sent him. His girl friend told me that he had written her and told her he had. So he must have written mine and her letter at dif times. anyway just wanted to tell you moms he started getting my mail. Things up there must take a long time to distribute. God bless all of you and your loved ones.

Well, I got a letter from my son today! He says he likes it some days and others he almost gives up, but he is determined to finish so he keeps on going. He can't wait to graduate so he can eat some real food...their food sucks he says. Over all he is okay..just a little sleep-deprived. His letter is dated Oct 28th, and he says they all got their hair shaved on that day. He does say he can have hair someday no more than 4 inches long. one thing i don't understand is why he has not gotten the 3 letters i have mailed himhe says he is still waiting. So I guess I will make copies of them from here on out to show him i did write him.

(ship 09 div 10) I got a phone call from my son today!! He says he is doing well. He said they got woke up a lot at nite by about 10 of those guys who kept them doing push ups. He says they are to get 2 weeks off for Christmas. He never got my first letter I mailed him. I wonder if their letters are read b4 the recruits read them and maybe some are given out and some are held back..anyway I am just so glad to hear his voice. I haven't heard the word..Hey Mom I love u so much in 4 weeks. It was like heaven.

Man, I have heard of so many young men leaving because of panic attacks! I would think they would let them recover and continue on. So sorry Tabbi! I registered Dalton for his SAT's today. Also applied for college and a pell grant! I don't think we can get it for Jan. though. I think you have to apply for the entire year at a time. He wants to go to Law school, so we will just start at square one! Best of luck to you and Cam! HUGS!!!

Hey! What happened to Cameron? Man, something strange is going on. Over half the guys Dalton flew there with are headed home. Makes you wonder! So sorry honey! We are still picking up the pieces. That's funny about the facebook thing! He called today and I asked...but they only know last names..LOL!!!!! He said he'll ask around. That cracks me up. BIG HUGS TO YOU!!! O, Dalton is fine. We are just setting up a surgeon to repair the foot and set up SAT's etc to repair his

I did! I got it today! I'm so excited. I wanted to plan the airline, but the airfare pricing is astronomical! My husband says we should forego the refundable tickets, saving us 200 on each ticket.
