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."

@2tyme ... I hope your surgery goes well and you can start healing soon.  Sending love and light.

Welcome disneygirl64. There is a we alth of knowledge here from all these great ladies.

Man it sounds like we have all been through our trials and tribulations this last couple of weeks. Sending prayers for sore backs, selling houses, ease of moving, healing for pneumonia, air headed help, new babies and new duty stations. Dear Heavenly Father lift our loads. Help us to remember you are always there if we could just remember to give you the load.

As for me... the trauma surgeon reviewed the X-rays and said it's surgery for me and asap. Not sure if I mentioned below that I have nerve damage but he wants the bone secured right away so I can start physical therapy. This is the first time I have ever been excited about surgery. This pain has been no fun. Surgery is Tuesday morning.

Have a great weekend all!!

Mississippi Mom, please get the bike. I can't wait to get back on mine.

Hi Ladies I am new to this group my son has been in Japan for a little over 6 months. He is stationed on the Ronald Reagan. I hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Comment by Blondie on Friday

could have sworn I posted last week!  it is a bad situation. they hired her when I ended up in the hospital.  she had no experience!  she is kinda spacy and an airhead (sorry)  she doesn't remember from morning till night.

OH Maggs What a Beauty!

Ouch 2tymeNavyMom.  sorry to hear that.  Prayers heading your way.

Sailor is in her last 6 weeks!!!!  Joe tore a muscle and is a lot of pain, fluid collecting.  was taking to civilian hospital by ambulance (from medical) they took x-rays, MRI and a CT scan and sent him home with pain killers.  Monday he went back to medical, had another x-ray and was put on light duty.  Poor thing can hardly breath!  can't lay down....we've been feeling sorry for ourselves.  I have pneumonia again, seems like every year it settles in.  :(   Wed. he got 3 messages to go back to medical, but they called his cell phone!  not his work, he reported back to medical yesterday, had Another x-ray starting to make me wonder if he's not asking the correct questions.  They had to take him off pain killers and onto anti inflamatories, so he could work....UGGG

Melissa's Husband got a job back here in Ohio and has moved back, but Navy is making her stay there for now :(  trying to get through the red tape of medical discharge, plus still taking radiation and chemo...trying to sell house...Can't wait to get down there in April...maybe March :)

Comment by Kim on Friday

Maggs,  She is adorable.  She looks like you.

Comment by Mississippi Mom on Friday

Maggs, she is beautiful!   What a sweet, special blessing for you. 

2tymeNavyMom, Oh my....prayers for quick healing for your arm  and no surgery!   Bless your heart.  Sounds like you have a very sweet and thoughtful son.  I know that makes you so proud. You are making me second guess the purchase of new bike.  LOL!   It is going to be a while before I can run again, and hubby is wanting to get me a new bike so I can ride around the lake.   I am wanting a "standard" bike with no gears, so I can just cruise!  Take care of yourself and good luck with the therapy.   I hope you have a great weekend that allows lots of rest for you. 

Comment by NavyMum on Friday

Congratulations Maggs - she's beautiful!

((((Hugs))) and prayers 2tymeNavyMom - may the healing be fast and complete

Comment by 2tymeNavyMom on Friday
She's a beauty! Congratulations.
Bad news for me is I broke my upper arm Sunday while riding my bicycle.
My Corpsman son is beside himself with not being able to help. He is a great help with reminding me what questions to ask. Have two weeks before the next x-ray when they decide if the bone has stayed aligned or if they will do surgery to put in pins. I also have nerve damage that requires physical therapy. I'm tooo old for this.
Prayers are appreciated. Have a great Friday all!
Comment by Anti M on Friday

@kjsdaughter .... sorry, didn't see your question.  Flowers?  The answer is pretty much no, unless the NEX florist on base is doing local deliveries.  

For future reference there is Bake Me a Wish, which does cakes to FPO, and then donates part of the proceeds to Operation Birthday Cake.
