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."

It was great to see everyone again
Comment by Baker on July 29, 2015 at 12:39am

Oops, sorry, that was 25 Jul 2015

Comment by Baker on July 29, 2015 at 12:38am

Sorry I missed the MNG. It is good to get them going. Will have to see if I can make it to the next one. Glad everyone had a great time.

Our Sailor just got married on 15 Jul 2015. It was a wonderful wedding and we are so happy for them both. A new beginning.

I keep watching the Celine Dion Surprises the Canadian Tenors and Sings Hallelujah With Them by YouTube

video and music. Every time I watch it I get goose bumps and watery eyes. The sound of their voices and the words just penetrates into my body. Very impressive. Needless to say, Celine has a voice like no other. Barbara Streisand comes close.

Our Blue Candle is on for All Our Sailors, Family and Friends.

That's awesome! Thanks for sharing.  I am going to have to keep that website for sure!

Comment by JKHarris on July 28, 2015 at 11:10pm offer welcome home banners and signs free to military families when our troop return home. I ordered a banner for my sailor when she returned from deployment it was awesome.

Thank you Sandy and Hikermom for putting the MGnE together. Great food and fellowship. It is always nice to talk to other Navy parents we never get tired of hearing about our Sailors and the connection between us is awesome. My mom and sister had a wonderful time they are still taking about our visit and the food was grand!I missed those who were not able to make it. Hopefully next time. Love to you all and your sailors.
