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."

My son enlisted!!!

My first thought was....OMG!! It took a few days for it to sink in that my baby had made a very adult decision. I had been telling him that he needed to grow up and figure out a plan for his life. This was not what I expected! I am very worried about how he will do in boot camp. He tends to be very sensitive, avoids confrontation, and is not very motivated at times. I know he will do well though if he sets his mind on it. I am not sure how to encourage him though!
