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."

OK...smaller, no packing, no gifts, etc.....just eating, talking, bitching, hugging, etc......and then shopping if you like.

BK - a dessert would be great!

I just changed the photo for this event so you could see what house you would be looking for on our street. And, there's a good chance Nico will be outside to greet everyone....but he is very friendly, no concerns.

I do think I might be bringing another Navy mom. Her son is at OSU in thru Navy. Dan might be coming also. Julie can't make it she has school. She says Hello and is hoping we have nice weather for the day.
