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."

KRIS:  on i-pad, you must be on 'Desktop version' or desktop site, NOT mobile version.  see it in your settings ( the gear wheel)  desktop version lets you see the toolbar for font, attach photos, bold type, bullets, underline etc.

Used desktop at work to post picture. :)
Actually, I put 12 of them together for our Friends & Family Gathering this weekend (Thanksgiving, DS home from college, DD leaving for BC on Mon/Tue and my 50th birthday is the following Mon). I got the holders & blue LED tea lights off Amazon, anchor charms from Oriental Trading and the “rope” from WalMart.

krikris,

Well you got me there because I only use my laptop so I don't know how it works with other platforms.  Looks like you got a picture to show up!!!  Love that candle, where did you find it????

Comment by krikris on Thursday

Yep, formatting row not showing on iPad.

Here's what I've created, I'll light it next week when DD leaves

Thanks Anna, but I’m not seeing any boxes other than the yellow field to enter my text. Could it be because I’m using my iPad? Will have to check my desktop at work tomorrow.

I did see how to add an image when replying in an actual “discussion” just not on the Comment Wall. Go figure.

kriskris,

In the top row of boxes in the comment box, the second icon from the left says image.  Click on that and it will open a window which will allow you to add a picture to your comment.  Choose browse, and find the picture saved on your computer and upload it.  You might want to change the size because this website makes all the pictures really big.  I usually choose 350 - 400.  Then "add comment"!!!!  Hope this helps!!

Just finished putting together Blue Candles to give to family & friends before DD leaves for Boot Camp next week.
Thought I would post a pic, but can’t figure out how :(
