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'm good with next weekend.  Hope you heard from the other attendees

Hi there Moms.   I just learned the marathon scheduled for Saturday will cause  a road closure on the road we need to access for the restaurant.    Because of this and the parking/traffic issues associated with the half and full marathon being run at the time we need access, I propose we move the date.   I apologize for the conflict and confusion.  I checked all the football schedules, but didn't think of marathons when we talked about setting up a date for this month.   How about we move it to next weekend?  Any thoughts?

I had to change to a "maybe" - if I am not there, I will definitely try to attend the next one!

Rebecca - Looking forward to seeing you at the next meet and greet.  I'll post the date as soon as it is confirmed.  Typically we select a date at the meet and greet for the next one.  So, I'll post it this weekend and attach it to the Events calendar above.  We should meet again in February.   Hope to see you there.
