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."

What I have for him is worth it.

It is worth it because he is…

Special pen-pals

I decided today that I want to do something that will involve my students in the process I'm going through. I teach special needs middle school students; mostly autistic kids and those with mild to moderate mental disabilities. They all know Sarah, as she has volunteered in my classroom many times. They knew she was going into the Navy, but I only shared with them today that she is gone to bc. (one of my girls asked why I seem so sad lately.) I know that some recruits don't get a lot of mail,… Continue

Adopt A Sailor

Is anyone familiar with the Adopt A Sailor Program? I know that we can pick them up on Christmas Day and spend the day with them, but what documentation do we have to show saying we are actually related to them? My recruit's cousin is close and wants to spend the day with him, but the blue sheet that we got in the mail doesn't say anything about it.

some of us miss holidays with our sailors

I am one of those unlucky moms that was not able to have their sailor home for any holidays for 3 years.  Promised leave, signed papers, trips cancelled day before leaving by the brass, that was typical for us.  Devastating for my son being overseas so far from home. Keep perspective on how things are for you.  If you miss one holiday out of 6, think of the other families that carry on, without a word. We are out there. It is actually hard to hear that others have their children for both…

Are We There Yet?

In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Blessed

I am one of the lucky ones who has my son home today the day after Thanksgiving.  I found out I will have him for Christmas.  We did not have him last year as he went to boot camp on Dec 1.   I know there will be more holidays without him so feeling grateful for the ones I have.  

Hope everyone had a great holiday.

Worried but I'm being patient..

Hello guys, currently my boyfriend is in A-school at Fort Sam Houston in Colorado. I thought boot camp was hard without him, but this seems even harder. Now that he gets to interact and communicate with other sailors. he has less time for me. I don't want to seem selfish because I know he has a very important job now and I know he has priorities that do go ahead of me. But on the weekends when he has liberty he hardly talks to me, I just don't know if this is normal. I just want the honest…

Waiting to hear

My girl went to boot camp on Nov. 14. I have had 1 phone call, and she was a mess. I have had no letter yet, not even the formal one that gives details about graduation. We didn't even get a call on Thanksgiving. I went to Navy boot camp 25 years ago, so I know what she's going through...I remember the utter exhaustion and bitter loneliness. I remember 80 other girls who liked and hated me alternately, depending on what time of the month it was. I just wish I knew how she is doing.

Thanksgiving Day

Finally heard my baby girls voice for the first time. I was so happy to hear voice I was so thrilled to talk with her. It has been a long adventure not knowing what was going n with my baby. She sounded fine she sounded good she was happy refreshed and energetic. I knew they would treat her well and she is doing awesome and to my surprise she told me she was happy that she went. She is having a wonderful time. I couldn't ask for more. Thank you US Navy.
