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:

A little about me:
Hello, I am a proud navy mom and am looking to meet other moms who are here for the same reason. I am a single mom of 3 great kids, and my youngest son is the one in the Navy and is so excited about his military career. He wants to be a firefighter and will be very good at it. He wants to make the Navy his career and takes it very seriously. I am so proud of him and his goals and accomplishments so far.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Needed to learn more about it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
To let my son spread his wings and fly and be the best he can be. He signed up a year ago so I have been able to get to know his recruiters in his recruiting station and they are now my extended family. They have been so helpful and are there for me 24/7. I know not all military moms are that lucky.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
