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."

Kid in a Box

We received our "kid in a box" box on Thursday, April 13th!  It was a little surprising to me that it came so quickly.  I was prepared to wait a bit longer before receiving his belongings.  Next we wait on receiving the letter with his PIR date and information on how we can send him letters!  This is an exciting journey, and I wish him and all the other recruits well on their journey.

The Journey has started!

My fabulous step-son left Sunday to head to the hotel he was to stay at the night before attending MEPS and getting his orders to fly out to RTC.  I am so very proud of him.  He had his cell phone with him and was texting his dad along his way while traveling.  He had one layover in one airport and let us know when he got there, and he again texted whenever he was about to get off the plane and check in with the officials waiting on him and other recruits in Chicago.  I have been excited…
