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."

Thank you so much Storymom and Baker.  I agree with you so much Baker, and that is the way my daughter felt - commitment for life.  Unfortunately her husband "said" that in his vows but in the end didn't mean it!!!  One Day At A Time is right!!!

Comment by Baker on December 26, 2017 at 2:34pm

Oh why do relationships have to be so hard? Anna, our thoughts and prayers are going your way. Love is spelled: "Commitment!" Husbands and Wives "Commit" to each other for "Life!" 

We just spent 6 days with our Sailor and his beautiful wife in Virginia Beach. My eyes are watering as I try to type this. WE love our Son's and Daughter's so much it hurts. WE want only good things to happen to them. Live is not fair. That is why we: "Take One Day At A Time!" 

Our blue candle is Glowing for all our Sailors, Family, Friends and Babies  waiting to be born!

Merry Christmas everyone and enjoy your time with your sailors!! I'm here in Oklahoma with my officer daughter, but it's a very sad time for her.  When she came home from her deployment her husband announced he didn't love her anymore and wanted a divorce. He had been planning this whole thing while she was deployed and then moved out one week before Christmas!! She knew he was unhappy but she was trying everything to fix their problems because divorce was never an option in her mind.  She's just so brokenhearted that he didn't want to try to work things out. Please say some prayers for her to get through this.  Now my hubby and I are going to have to move into her house to help take care of her pets this next year of deployments until she transfers to a shore tour. Such an adjustment for all - hubby and I are not dog people and she has 3!!!!!

Merry Christmas Friends!

Every Christmas is different. This year we are in Virginia Beach with our Sailor and his beautiful wife who is expecting twins in March! What a present that will be! It is just fun to be with them and do everyday things with them. 

It would be wonderful if every Christmas was like this. We know that is not always possible for everyone. 

Our blue candle is Glowing for all our Sailors, Family, Friends and Babies  waiting to be born!
