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 email, phone, chatrooms, and message boards, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

My daughter leaves on March 22nd for boot camp! I'm getting so nervous and anxious about her departure! I'm trying to keep her and myself calm abut it but it's hard! I can't imagine when the 22nd comes. I wonder will I be able to "see her off"!

still no "form" letter, still no call

Posted by June on February 27, 2016 at 10:09am 13 Comments

I am im-patiently waiting for the "form" letter, and still have not received a call from my new recruit.  She has been at Boot Camp since February 16.  I am hoping to get something in the mail today.  This waiting is no bueno for this momma!  I know she is surely covered with daily prayers, but, I can't help myself.  I know she is doing great things!  I know this "waiting" is also something we all will have to get used to.  Lord help us!  Give us peace and understanding!

And I heard that once I find out the graduation date that I should book a room as soon as possible. I've never been to Chicago and I don't want to stay somewhere that isn't a safe part of town. Does anyone…


Something warm to share, encouragment and hope through these last few weeks of SR BT (bootcamp finals)

Good morning Navy family! Wanted to share with you all what's been on my heart. As I'm sure you too can relate and we approach these final weeks and BS21. :)

I remember the exact moment we found out that my baby sister (Division 120)signed up to become a US Sailor. A FLOOD of emotions came over me. For a second I thought I was dying because HER whole life flashed before my eyes slamming down on my tear gates. I saw this little blonde ringlets curly headed green eye innocent beauty,… Continue
