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."

Since there wasn't a discussion about our week, I decided to add one! Already booked my hotel and received a good rate for my mother in law and I.

So glad you are on NAVY for Moms - it was  wonderful help to me through bootcamp especially.  Just keep those letters going out in the mail constantly and get all of the family to write.  My son said that getting letters from home and knowing many were concerned and praying for him kept him going.  As much as we miss them it is hard for them being away even if they don't admit it.   Send anything that can go in a plain flat envelope and keep it upbeat, encouraging and fun.    Boot Camp graduation was very exciting and emotional and well worth the trip.   CS school A school grad is much smaller and not that many attend unless local.     I wish your son (and you)  the best through bootcamp.   Blessings,  Val
