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."

What a wonderful turnout we had for lunch, so many of our "old" faces and plenty of new ones as well. It was so nice catching up with everyone; we have become such a diverse group of Navy families.

We had families from the USS Lincoln, the USS Geo. Washington, The USS Boxer,the USS Chung Hoon, a pilot from the airwing of the USS Ronald Reagon, lots of MA families including some with sailors stationed in Spain, Bahrain and Guam. New Naval academy famiiles, a very recent PIR family and a boot camp family counting down the days until their PIR and our own Gold Star mom Florence. Lots of good sharing, lots of new friendships being formed.

It was a wonderful time for all and we look forward to seeing everyone at the next event!
