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."

Thanks Cathie...

Thank You Janis...


I'm glue to the phone Torah was saying my son sprain his ankle and didn't sound to well on the letter...I pray he is ok....I don't know why but I'm very worried right now... I need a phone call

Villafane,  I didn't realize that.  I will make sure to include the whole division in my prayers now.  Afterall, Battlestations is coming up and they will need to connect real well as a team.  I hope your son heals quickly! I'm sure he is in good hands. Sometimes we worry more than we should I think.

Thank you do much for praying I will do so myself..God bless them all.

Morning Cathie

Yes you are correct I do worry way too much, my husband keeps telling me I can't save the world LOL. I do believe they are coming together as one, from my letter there are a few that just not there a 100% yet.  Battlestations are going to be such an awesome experience for our SR I wish I could be a fly on the wall, as a mother I guess I would like to take part in all of his life experiences.  12 days woohoo Im so proud of each and everyone of our SR,  god bless them.  Hugs Tora

That sounds like me every day


Oh my goodness I hope your son's ankle is better soon, I do believe division 100 has had so many different challenges on top of boot camp, as Im sure the other division have also.  I am there with you on the worring part, I keep telling myself he is ok.  BUT I also need a phone call, Brandon is very much a mommas boy, and my baby to boot lol.  I have all of our SR in my prayers everyday.  Hugs Tora

Have we chosen a color yet to wear to graduation? 

Good Morning Ladies!!!

I am heading to the local craft store this morning to look for scarves or something.. If I find something do you want me to buy extra and give them to you at sarge's meet and greet??? Any color suggestions??? Does anyone know what other divisions have chosen for thier color, so we don't pick the same color???

Hope you all are having a great St Patties Day!!!


Morning Danielle,

UGH I guess I wasn't aware of the division having different colors.  I had seen that we could order scarfs/ribbon from one of the other Navy women, it didn't look that diffcult so I made my own.  Goodness I just copied what she had white scarf with navy blue letters, and the ribbon is navy blue with white letters.  Holly crap I hope I didn't step on anyones toes.  If you ladies decide for division 100 do go with different colors I will adjust (sorry). Hugs Tora


If we could come on an agreement for a color I would be more than happy to make ribbons - I would just need everyone to message me with your last name as that is who they are known by - that would be on one side with 100 their division on the other side. 

Unless you ladies are just thinking a plain ribbon - which would be great also.

I made a navy blue ribbon with white letters for my family they are all going to take a picture and text it to me so they can also show their support and how proud they all are.  Okay maybe we are just silly - we are very close LOL. 

Just thought I would throw it out there - Hugs Tora
