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."

We are getting Frankie's room set up.  Matthew our Sailor came home and emptied his old room so we could make it into Baby Frankie's room.  I had no idea one baby could cost so much money.  We had to paint and buy new carpet and get a new crib mattress, sheets ect.  Not complaining, just so happy our new Grandson can spend so much time with us!  Hope to see everyone soon.
