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."

Hi All.  My son just left Wednesday for Boot, so I feel like I've graduated from the "Blog" site to "Forums."  I have tons of questions on how to go about this whole thing, so bare with me.  For now,…Continue

"A proud day for ALL Americans.  A somber day for the families who are re-living that grim September day.  I pray for their strength and hope the pain stings just a little less now that justice has been served."

We ARE the United States of America!

We ARE the Unied States of America.  The American way of life is individualistic, dynamic, pragmatic.  It affirms the supreme value and dignity of our great nation.  We are a strong, powerful nation with zero tollerance for such acts as September 11th.  We rested none since that grim day and will continue to protect this great country for eternity.  It was our duty, our mission, our American way to protect our nation, and we did just that.  This is a time to reflect on all our brothers and…See More

Our son...

Our son left January 4th for boot camp.  Letting go was the hardest thing I ever had to do.  The endless emotions that I swore I'd never manage to survive.  He had gone through so much that I thought I understood, but I know now that I will never fully.  He pushed through like a true man.  He complained none, did what he had to do.  I spent so many nights crying missing him.  So many days putting on that strong face, but was simply dieing inside.  I stalked the mailman and wore my cell phone as…See More

AJVNavyMom commented on Proud Mom's blog post 'What is the best cell phone option for a deployed sailor?'
"We gave our son an i-phone for his PIR graduation and kept him on our plan.  He pays for his internet ($30/mo) and the extra $10 to have him on my plan.  It's A LOT cheaper than him having his own plan.  We use Verizon. …"

Breathtaking Ceremony...

We just got back from our son's PIR graduation on Friday.  It was simply amazing and took my breath away!  They were all so focused and did an amazing job.  It was all I could do not to jump from my seat to go get my son. As soon as we heard, "Liberty Call" we rushed to him and I hugged him so hard and of course cried with pride!  Unfortunately, he was SO sick.  He had a migrane, Pink eye, and a temp of 104!  He pushed through, but he was shivering uncontrollably. Fortunatley, I take migrane… Continue
