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."

I was updating my list of Essex Mom's and I thought you were one, but now I don't see you in the group. I had one of your sons as a MM on the ship and I see the other is the the Blue Ridge. Is that right?...different ships, but the same fleet?
Or am I confused?
