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."

Event Description

Boot Camp Graduation Meet and Greet 06-22-17

The RSVP link is at the end of this post.

Basic information about the meet and greet: Although we provided over nineteen thousand free meals to our Navy families in 2016, we kindly ask for your voluntary contributions to help fund the weekly meet and greet.

Please plan to attend even without contributing if you like. We will also have raffle baskets, If you’d like to bring a basket, either your choice, or themed to your home state, please do so. If you’re contributing a basket, please download the basket form on our website and also take the time to review the survival guide at this link

In case you are interested or wondering, we have no financial stake in the venue, the Lakehurst Corporate Center. They do, however; donate the entire first floor of their corporate center to our Navy families each week.  My wife and I fund the meet and greet, catered food, labor, and cleaning expenses from contributions from the previous weeks meet and greet.  We believe in paying forward and your kind support through kind donations and raffle tickets insures that the future Navy families will have the same opportunity to attend this gala event like you do. It is always a fun and informative night, so thank you in advance!

Please pass the word around to other guest at your hotel as they may not be aware of the event. Children are allowed. No contribution or donation is required to eat however; your generous - heartfelt contributions, are needed so my family and I can continue to host this event for our new Navy families each week. Dress is very casual.
