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

 meam  is having a MNG at her Petaluma Mail Center. The parade is on with a start time of 1:00pm. There is no cost for the bleachers. The only cost is the food. Meam is going to make it a little more simple. No potluck unless someone wants to bring before lunch snacks and drinks. The maximum cost could be $15.00 but she will let us know. Parking will be in and around her Petaluma Mail center. 

Please send a Navy Picture of your son/daughter to meam. She will make a paddle with the picture that you can proudly hold and wave.  

Here is the link of last years parade.

The Mail Center can only fit about 20 people. More than that we will have to be overflow into her parking lot.

OK. You are shown as organizer for both. Don't worry. I am reluctant to suggest deleting THIS event. Let's leave both up.


Comment by Baker on November 2, 2014 at 12:01pm

Bea I set the event to open to the public. There are two events posted for the same MNG. Confusing I know. Now where did I put my memory?

Comment by Baker on November 2, 2014 at 11:56am

Bea the MNG that Kathy setup works best. That is on the SF group page. I am not that good in setting up these events.

If I click on the link from the San Fran group, I see the others who have RSVP. From this page (I got here by clicking Events tab on the menu bar, then the date), this page pops up. The others who have RSVPed don't show up. I think the system has a glitch. If I click next event, then previous event, I get a message that this event has been set to private and to contact you on details. Looking forward to see you again soon. Everyone seems to be coming and going on different schedules this year....

Comment by Baker on November 2, 2014 at 11:49am

Thanks Bea. You and your husband are quite busy. We will have to come to see you for the next MNG. 

Comment by BunkerQB on November 2, 2014 at 11:42am

Sorry we can't make it this year. We're still working on reorganizing. I know everyone had fun last year.
