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."

I am so sorry to report, that I will not be attending tomorrow's luncheon. My husband has been given a funeral to do, and that totally conflicts with our timing. He will be doing the military honors with his legion.

I am so so sorry, and I am sad about it.

I so hope everyone that does make it, has an awesome time, and take pictures.

Angie - I heard from my friend here in Peoria, and she cannot come with me next week - her sailor will be home on leave (lucky her!!) - but I am still going to be there - can't wait to meet all of you!
