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."

I can do the pillowcases for the second group!

Thank you and a HUGE hug to you!!!!


My son is on the Nimitz.

 I am not certain of how this works; where do I send donations to??  Can I make a monetary donation?

Many thanks,


Maria, You can send letters or a care package directly to the Nimitz.

OR we have a PayPal account or you can mail a check to:

Molly's Adopt A Sailor

17736 SE Mill St.

Portland, OR  97233

We would like you to know that all of us are volunteers. 100% of all donations go to our troops! Thank you! Pat

My first time. I can do cookies, popcorn, DVDS, toothpaste

Thank you! BTW, just sent you a reply to your PM.

We are in have snacks and DVD's for both groups and can cover the first group in pillow cases. Can send less PC if someone else wants to send some just let me know how many to send. Also going to do some tie dye ones the end of the month so will still have a stash. We found some awesome fall fabric too so we will be starting on them soon to. Life has been crazy but I am always around even if I don't always post all other posts come to my  phone so I keep up that way. Glad to see some new moms

Love and Blessings to all


Thank you so very much! I know Kim (our pillowcase co-ordinator) is on vacation this week. I will send her a message and ask her to let you know how many to send. Pat 

I got stuff for my 2 sailors. Do I wait until aug. 25 or can I send it earlier? Are my sailors from group 1 or group 2?

Preferably wait to mail between the 22-25. We try to have everyone mail about the same time so the care packages arrive about the same time. Makes it easier for our Contact to distribute. But if you need to mail a little early, that is fine.

I sent you both addresses, so you can mail to either one!

Thank you! Pat

Which group are my sailors in?

Group #1
