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."

praying for you and your family!

End of Day Blessing: May God prosper you in every way. May you be emotionally strong & stable, may you be spiritually deep & thriving, may you become financially free & generous, socially blessed & a blessing, and physically fit & healthy. May God fill in every gap, heal every wound, and restore everything stolen. May you live abundantly in every way. And may you sleep well tonight.

End of Day Blessing: May you learn to trust God more and more. When He calls, may you follow where He leads, step out without having all of the information and look up, when your circumstances threaten to weigh you down. May you live, breathe, and speak as one who's a victor, equipped to do the impossible. Sleep well tonight knowing that all of heaven is on your side.

End of Day Blessing: May God fill you with hope, infuse you with joy, overwhelm you with His love, and empower you to fulfill His purposes for you. May you be bold, strong, courageous, tenacious, and tenderhearted, all at the same time. And tonight, sleep well.

Hello friend. Reading your blessings are like devotions. What a gift you have. Thank you for sharing. What do you hear from Ali? Chris seems to be doing by day as they reach PIR! He always seems so starved to hear about current events. I don't think they are exposed to the outside world much. I can't believe March is here...that means we see our sailors soon! I would love to hear from you. Love Cindy.

only 28 more days! and it almost seems like a life time ago!!! ali told me that the only outside info she gets is when theyre in contact with higher ups that have seen the Super Bowl, Daytona 500 etc like in medical or uniform depts.
i'll give you a call next week to check in. peace to you my dear, shari

Start packing!!!! I can't wait to give you a big hug at PIR! It will be a great day!!

hey girl, so thankful God blessed us with each other for this journey... i'll give you a call this week to pray over the phone and discuss some PIR details ((hugs))
this is also a wonderful blessing to pray over our SRs this week : )
this is also a wonderful blessing to pray for your SR this week : )

A reminder to continue praying for the families of the male (january) and female (february) SR's who passed away as we pray for our SR's. Peace to you as you relax your "grip" to Him.

rereading blessings : ) to start week
