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 can't believe I have to miss another dinner with you all. This Monday evening is the National Honor Society induction ceremony at school, and I must be in attendance. I'm so terribly busy and haven't had much time to get on the site. Mary is doing well and is receiving an honor society (Aggie Scholars) recognition in early November. She will be home for Christmas in mid-December, so I'll keep you all posted. Keep praying for her to get that running time down more; she's definitely improving. Hopefully, I'll be able to make it for dinner in November; however, I think it's the Monday of the week I leave for the National Council of Teachers of English convention, but that won't be until Thursday of that same week. I'll definitely need a decent meal and some great fellowship with my N4M friends. I do hope you are all healthy and keeping in touch with your loved ones. Kaye, I know you are anticipating that November 20th wedding (Rick and I celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary on 11/20). I hope the plans are going well. I'll plan to see you all in November!
