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."

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength a very present help in trouble.

Hi--why don't you post a bible verse that has touched you today?
the verse i'll put is the one that brought my wife and I closer. "The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." -Genesis 2:18
"The eternal God is your Refuge; and underneath are His everlasting arms." Deuteronomy 33:27. Our God is eternally faithful! We can trust Him to care for His own!
one of my favorite Bible verses is Psalms 30:5, "For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life:  weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."

Psalms 119:9 - 16 is one of my favorites: 

9 How can a young person stay on the path of purity? 
   By living according to your word. 
10 I seek you with all my heart; 
   do not let me stray from your commands. 
11 I have hidden your word in my heart 
   that I might not sin against you. 
12 Praise be to you, LORD; 
   teach me your decrees. 
13 With my lips I recount 
   all the laws that come from your mouth. 
14 I rejoice in following your statutes 
   as one rejoices in great riches. 
15 I meditate on your precepts 
   and consider your ways. 
16 I delight in your decrees; 
   I will not neglect your word.

It's time to start posting here again.  What's your favorite verse OR song.

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14.27

I Love this verse, it's been a favorite of mine and has helped me through many personal struggles. 

What a Friend we have in Jesus!

Psalm 62:1,2 and 5-8 and Psalm 63:6-8
