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."

Okay, big announcement, Susan is extremely sick with the flu and is not going to be able to be at lunch. So, she has asked if we can reschedule our lunch. I know that there are quite a few who are up north and you may want to just meet and have a nice lunch but we won't be able to pack boxes and such. I would rather meet on another day and pack boxes for our sailors. So, I will be for the rescheduling. She is so sorry but there is no way she is going to be able to manage.

One of these days I will make it to an event! I have other commitments right now.  I would love to meet other moms (and dads and uncles and cousins and brothers and sisters).  My daughter lives in Monroe and my BFF lives in Ballard. :-)
