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. :)

Alright. Those of you who are coming, post with what the best time would work for you within the next few days. By Friday preferably. 

Then we can just pick the time that works for the most amount of people. :)

Thursday would work best for me. Preferably between the noon and six. :)

TxLadyJane- It doesn't matter what phase your son is in. Any and all are welcome! :)

I was thinking more afternoonish since that's when the majority of our sailors will be busy. But I'm up for whatever works for everyone else! :)

My job ends on 14 Jun, interviewing for jobs as we speak, but nothing firm on getting another job.  So I am trying to see if I can arrange to drive him the extra car during that time frame.  So I might be around.  I know my son is only in A School but it would be fun to meet up!

Awesome!  I don't arrive until mid-day on the 16th.  Would you all like to meet Thursday evening?  Dessert and coffee?  Drinks if you like?  If it's a small group when the time comes, I would be glad to host in my rental.  If many people rsvp, we would need a more public venue.

I'm really looking forward to meeting some of the mom/gfs/wives!!!!

Hopefully my sailor won't have something planned that will cause a conflict - I'm still his mama and he'll just have to get over it!!!!
