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:

I have one remaining extra seat. I can ask my SR to put your guest's name on her list if you want to guarantee getting the seat. Just let me know.

Hi tbones mom!  I accepted your friend request.  I'm sending you a private message.

We are flying in on Thursday night.  We are meeting our daughter, who happens to be working in Chicago that week and our SR's girlfriend, who is in coming in from Birmingham, at the airport, then driving to the Residence Inn, where our oldest son and his friend will meet us.  I'm making bracelets for my girls, so I won't be buying any ribbons.  We probably won't go to any meet and greets, since we'll be having a mini family reunion, but that may change.

We got a beautiful note scratched on the back of his form letter.  I'm looking forward to our next letter.  Getting the "kid in the box" was hilarious for us.  Needless to say, all of that went straight into the washing machine.  It sorta reminded me of when he used to come back from Boy Scout camping trips.

I'm glad there are some boys his age. I know he is a big boy but I just really hope he makes friends. He would hate to know I said that! Justice is actually my step son but I wouldn't love him more if he was my own. Our house seems so quiet without him home. We have other kids at home but he is definitely the life of the house.

My son's name is Justice. He turned 19 this month. We got the form letter on Thursday. We lie in Oklahoma. I am from San Diego and hope he gets stationed there. How old Iis your son and what is his name?

My boyfriend's name is matt! & I know, he is the first person I've ever been really close with so this experience is completely new to me (so is this website so I'm sorry if it takes me long to respond haha). It is nice to know there are actually people in his group! I was getting worried there for a while. I had no idea what to expect so at least it will be nice to talk to and see what is going on with everybody else

Hi! My son is in the same ship and div as your son! I'd love I chat!
