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."

MombyHeart, praying that the relationship with your "adopted" ex-sailor son, along with his new wife can be restored, especially before the new baby arrives. There is nothing like a new, little life to bring hope for new beginnings, and mended relationships, dispute what problems may exist.

MomByHeart,

Enjoy that precious grandbaby and hope you have a pic to share with us!!

Prayers for your Dad-in-law and sister's situation...  I think he may be needs to find a more active group to be living with?  Wish he evaluated the place before he voiced his desire and maybe he will be more careful while he looks at other places. 

Anyway, the time with Dad/Grandpa is special, so hope her family sees it like that and not be impatient.  It is still his house and he needs peace before he can leave it~~

Prayers for your SonByHeart will honor your relationship with him before his wife came into the picture.  May you be able to share in that new little baby's life.  Maybe a heart-to-heart needs to happen.....

(((HUGS)))

NavyArmyMarineMom,

Praying that your living arrangements improve immensely and so glad to hear your Sailor son and his wife are being there for you!!  May the time pass by quickly on the settling down of your work place and caseload! 

You've been in contact with your daughter or trying to be available for her to live with this coming school year?  Hope your Marine son's medical situation has been improving.....

Co-Twin,

I can't believe that your veteran Sailor son wants to go forward with his Alaska plans!  May God open his eyes to really delve into his reasons and does anyone else have something to do with this decision?  Prayers for him and you!!

cao503,

Your SR has made a strong decision for his future!  I know when my Sailor daughter was in DEP for 2 1/2 mos and that night prior to leaving on the plane, she was SOOOooo ready to start this journey she had decided for herself!  She was at a 4 year Christian university, but 2 1/2 years in, she withdrew and enlisted with the Navy after researching all the military branches. She felt that college was My Path for her and she was not feeling it.  I remember the shock I felt when she made the decision and nothing could sway her, not even the promise of a good job with one of her Daddy's friends in the real estate mortgage business. We came around and supported her and saw her off at the hotel the night before she left for Boot Camp.(We kept wishing she would change her mind though.) That was in January 2013 and she has been doing wonderful in her chosen career as a Navy IT!!

I missed her terribly and would start crying when I thought of her at different times of the day and with different triggers.... What you are feeling is normal.  I pray also that your SR will look forward to seeing you and your hubby at PIR graduation in 9 weeks to celebrate his accomplishment with him!! 

Don't worry.  Where else will he be paid for his training in his career, provided with medical, dental, and vision insurance, be able to finish college degrees with tuition assistance in the Navy and then be able to continue his education via the Post 911 act or be able to have his spouse/children take advantage of that?  Plus see the world!!  God is directing your son, you can be sure of that~~

Hello there!

       making it rich and fertile. The river of God

       has plenty of water; it provides a bountiful

       harvest of grain, for You have ordered it so."

Thank you Mom by heart and cao503 and everyone else that are praying. It has been an overwhelming gift to have strangers/sisters in Christ pray for my son and our family.
Comment by MomByHeart yesterday

Quick update on my family.

Tomorrow my daughter from AZ arrives with her 10 month old baby.  We are so excited to have them for a week. I will be driving her to visit her college friends about 3 hrs from where I live, so the time will be busy, busy.  We get two days here at home with my hubby before she flies out again.

My father-in-law who lost his dear wife in January is struggling after 66 years of marriage.  He decided to sign up for assisted living a month after she passed, but has yet to actually move in. He drives over there three times a day for meals but will not spend the night. Now he says he doesn't want to move, but he has committed to 3 months at the facility.  A very expensive meal plan! He is being quite difficult as he told my sister-in-law that he wanted to move and have her family take the house. So she sold her place and now he doesn't want to move or make the minor renovations needed to accommodate her family of 4 living with him, which they are willing to do.  He says he feels pushed out of his home, etc., etc.  He made these choices too soon and now is confused and regretful and very much still grieving.  Prayer is needed that he will allow for the adjustments to the house or that he will be willing to move to the new place. He doesn't want to live there because everyone is "too elderly."  He is 89!  lol 

My ex-sailor "adopted" son is expecting his first baby in about 8 weeks.  We are not in much contact anymore as his new wife has caused some difficulties and he has withdrawn.  He is working hard going to school and trying to finish his degree with the money he received from the Navy, but now that a child is almost here, he will have to go back to work to support the family so his wife can stay home with the baby.  

May you all have a blessed rest of the week!
