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."

Sounds good so far.  Hope we get our school schedule in March, so I know when in Aug. I have to go back to work. Want to come so badly!
.......still waiting on the school calendar to be published for school start dates.  I want to come over at least for the weekend!
Would love to help. Please let me know if I can help at the fair. My oldest daughter lives in Indy so could get her to help also.
Any new information...any new activities?
Any news for Navy Week?

Kaye,

    I would love to help. Cant be there everyday but want to be involved. Thanks.

I am getting more information from Molly's Adopt a Sailor for the Aug. 20th packing party.  Quite excited!  Remember to start writing your cards of encouragement now, and if you have any younger kids at home who like to draw, keep them busy!  Nothing makes those deployed more happy than getting a "boatload" of hand written notes and cards decorated from the heart.  Right now, please go to your post office and ask for a small stack of the LARGE flat rate military boxes, customs forms and the sticky plastic holders for the customs forms.  Will also need priority mail tape or clear plastic tape.  Lots of stickers for cards and boxes.  I'll have the requests of what that month's group needs soon.  

Can't wait to meet you at the packing party!

It'd be wonderful to have several moms attend the lunch for the Habitat for Humanity crew.  But, if you can't be there in person, we still need food sent (we're serving 15 sailors).

I still don't know if free tickets will be available for the Indians baseball game on Tuesday night, but will post as soon as I do.  Of course, you can message me or post any questions you have.  Thanks! k.
