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."

Have you heard from your daughter or son?  My daughter is in Div 300 and she sounds good, but tired.  Interesting in hearing how your daughter or son is doing.

I guess no news is good news. Probably Emily must be very busy.Would just like to hear her voice .If BS. is on 8/31 they are going to be very tierd on the 9/2/10.
Sitting here thinking the same dumb thing. No news is good news, UHG! I think they are going to be completely spent with BS on 8/31. No mail since last Tuesday!!!!
Did everyone get normal mail this week? We've gotten something every Tuesday since the mail started coming. This week, nothing so far. Today is Thursday and if nothing comes today, Mariah, Mackenzie's twin sister is going to walk to the RTC and rattle the gates for her sister ;)
i didn't get any mail last week - it comes speratically unfortunately.
but so far this week i have gotten a letter almost every day - a total of about 6 so far
I got mail yesterday, I asked my daughter for a list of things she wants me to bring her. Shampoo, Conditioner, IPOD, laptop, brownies, chocolate chip cookies, her dog (she knows that's not going to happen), toothpaste, a camera. I think we will find a walmart or something around there for most of these things. She is a Grad and Go, but she is staying at the base so I can bring these things to her. Like the count down says 12 more day and 19 hours. Yeah!
My boyfriend is in Div 300 also - ship 11! i have received 41 letters from him as of today and i received 2 of them this afternoon!! He said he is ready to see "the outside" again and specifically stated that he did NOT want to stay and take pictures - he said we could go out to eat and stuff and take pictures elsewhere. haha. Mine sounds tired too - he was on bed rest one day because i guess all of the people in his "barrack" have some sort of cold. Other than that he only has one more physical test and one more written test to pass before graduation!!
have you booked your hotel and what not? i'm booking mine this weekend.
hope all is well!!
Anyones kids, GF's or wives going to Mississippi for A school? Just wondering if my daughter will at least know someone when she gets there.
My daughter is staying an Great Lakes.
What is your daughter going to train for? What's your last name? Jackee
Sorry for the delay. Swinehart. My daughter is going to be a GSM (Gas Systems Machine). What is your last name and what is she training for?
