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."

Here's is a picture of the tshirt we all want to get for our meet and greet. We need to know who is interested in getting these? Need to know how many and what sizes. Need to know by 6pm central time Tuesday so we can get them by Sept 11th. Price will depend on how many we order. The more we order the less they will cost.

cincymom1: I can't order any more. It will delay delivery. I'm sorry. Maybe if someone changes their mind there will be extra.

Hi, cincymom1: One of the mom's had sent two emails and I thought she wanted three shirts. She only wanted 2.

I do have an extra xlarge shirt. It's yours if you want it. I'll be at Sarge's meet and greet on thursday. It's $15.00.

Let me know

Hey Ladies! Lynda works all day and won't be able to get on her computer until this evening. She just texted me and asked that I let you know that she will post a list of who ordered and what they ordered this evening when she gets home!

Hope this helps. Oked proof last night. We are good to go. I'll see you on Thursday next week. Praying every afternoon and an extra one at night.

lynda, thank you for doing this

i will assume the elizabeth mom ship 13 div  13 is typo and I'm getting one  ; )

Thanks Lynda...this is great!!!!  see u soon!!


uggghhh, haven't been on...guessing it is way too late at this point?  Such a cute shirt!

For the people who didn't get them ordered in time, I assume you can always order one from the website anyway, but you won't have it at the PIR, and it's going to cost more. But, if you really want it, there is that option. Is that correct?

(I already have one ordered, but I hate seeing the other moms disappointed!)

I believe you can order on own. It's attached to my email though. Also, one shirt will probably cost $30.00.

Hi Linda, I don't know how I missed this.  Would you be able to message me with the info. It looks like I can do it with design number or your email

Hi, Kander: I sent you a friend request and same info I told mhillyard.

Just in case you don't see the message I sent to mhillyard. Here's what I told her.

You can place an order on your own through the website Mention order number #2310322. Tell them you would like to place a NEW order based on this shirt design.


Thank you!!!!
