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."

Hello! Just wondering how everyone else is dealing with their boyfriend being gone? I think about him constantly! I have my good days but then there's those days where i just completely break down. I really like the support we give each other on this website though. Just have to keep reminding my self the wait is worth it!

Absence makes the heart grow fonder. <3

My boyfriend has been out of boot camp for almost a year. I dont think it ever really gets easier. I currently live in New York and he has been moved from Chicago to Virginia. It helps that we can text and skype now and we try to make trips to see each other when possible. As far as boot camp what I found that worked for me is to try to stay busy. Depend on your family and friends. Write as many times as you can but stay positive. The goodbyes are always hard but them hello's get sweeter everytime. If you ever need advice or someone to talk to just let me know inbox me or something. Im willing to help in anyway I can I know its hard but in the end when he graduates it will be worth it:) Stay positive girly!

I cannot wait for the texting and skyping! It will be much easier. I've been staying busy and he graduates next Friday. I'm sooo excited to finally be able to see him again, although he leaves that night for South Carolina. Everyday I just get more anxious haha. Thanks so much for the positive support :)

Enjoy the time you have with him and do not count down the time until he leaves!

id really like to have some ppeople to talk to thisis the first time being away from my man and im really struggling i still have 4 months to go
