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."

Event Description

I know there's a lot of us going to be down there-- mostly for Power School grad. I figured it might be easier to try and organize something now. With my power school group, we never got the chance to get together because nothing was organized and many of us went without internet. 

I was thinking we could grab a bite to eat somewhere or maybe some coffee. Open to suggestions. :)  OH! We could always meet up at the beach, too!

As far as time goes, we can talk about what will work best. I saw some coming in on the 14th, so I thought maybe the 15th or 16th during the day would work best. I know things got crazy with moving Aaron out of the barracks before graduation, so once again, open to suggestions. :)

Anyone up for lunch today? 
I'll be down at the beach this morning with my cousin's fiancee (he works in Charleston for BP). I think we'll head to Isle of the Palms if anyone wants to join or is going to be there already. :)

Comment by Binker & Bro: 2X Nuke Mom on June 15, 2011 at 11:53am
I'm here. had my first glasses of wine last night with Binker and LadyLove. Told baby girl to remind dad to pick up a case of RedCat before leaving Elmira. Wine shall flow!
Comment by Binker & Bro: 2X Nuke Mom on June 13, 2011 at 12:57am
the place is pretty big and I think if we only had a few people, we could do it with little or no problem. I also know the people pretty well since I always stay there. I will get in late tuesday evening and stay until sun morning or so. Planning on bringing down NY wine also so who knows! I got room keys!
Comment by Emily-aaronsgirl11 on June 12, 2011 at 10:08pm
Thursday or Friday? Afternoon or evening? 
Restaurant or villas? I could offer we meet at Aaron's apartment, but I don't know if his roommate would like that. :P

Comment by Binker & Bro: 2X Nuke Mom on June 8, 2011 at 8:29pm

I havent made my arrangements yet--too many variables. I plan on training it in on tuesday and staying at the ramada ashley phosphate. they have a nice pool and a large lounge area  (and complimentary drinks from 5-7 mon-thur). I will only have Bink and Lady (and maybe son #2) until dad and little sis arrive thursday. Will prob drive out to KY Sunday (have a shakespeare institute mon and tue--then have to get back to NY for baby girl's 8th grade grad on wed night--oh everything in one week!) That's my imput--oh and they can request overnight chits next week.
