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."

 Its finally done!! He signed yesterday!! He is going to be an AO. Can someone please tell me first hand from experience from your daughter or son what kind of job it actually is. When I was reading about it I said to him what did you do?? I was shocked and could not believe he did it. Has to go to Fla for school for 5 weeks. I am just in shock from everything. Everything is all new for me and very overwhelming. I feel sad and happy at the same time. I have him til February which is great at least. I know I should be so happy for him but I can not seem to let go. If anyone knows anything about this job please let me know!! Thanks so much!! Sue- Andrew's MOM

As Kathy said, take things one step at a time and enjoy the time you have with him.  Also, encourage him to begin studying and training now.  This could help him advance in rate and/or could help keep him from being injured (stress fractures can happen to those who are not used to the intense training).

Join the group DEP-Leavin' for Boot Camp in February to connect with others who have loved ones leaving around the same time and who may even train together.  Another group to join, or at least check out the Pages and Discussions in, is New Members Stop Here.

Your future Sailor may want to join http://www.navydep.com to learn the ins and outs from the DEP point of view. Craig runs that and will steer you to some good links on there.
