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."

Got my letter, my daughter didn't mention this. She did say she has been sick though and missed a day. She was worried that if she missed another day by being sick she'd get moved back. She also said she hurt her ankle during fitness testing and that no matter what she's gonna suck it up until boot camp is over, then get it looked at. Sounds like they're all anxious to get boot camp behind them....
I didn't get a letter today, hopefully tomorrow. My daughter did say in her last letter that they were getting it together and things were looking good.
4senuff-- I will be praying for your daughter. I pray that the pain will be completely gone and that all of them will make it to graduation without a hiccup. Just 15 days and a wake up.
I got a letter and so did my husband and my son. Yay!!! But we missed her call today by 10 mins can you believe it. Everytime she calls we aren't at home. Last time she tried my cell and got ahold of me but she didn't this time. Oh well at least we got letters. Only 14 days and a wake up to go ladies..... boo yaa!!!!!
I got a one hour phone call today. Cozey said they did the best of the 6 divisions graduating on 6/25 so they earned 2 free hours to do whatever they wanted like go to the food court and eat fast food or make calls. She said they have passed everything just battlestations to go and that she would call on Wed. during the day. She sounded really good, no crying this time. Cannot wait for Friday! It's going to be amazing!
I know CozeysMom wasn't it wonderful talking with them. Stefanie is not too worried about battlestations because she said when it comes to getting things done their division pulls together. Are you going to the meet and greet Thursday? My husband and I will be there. I hope to meet you there. I am so proud of our girlie girls!!!
We miss our daughter's call by just minutes and we forgot the cell phone at home..we only ran up to the store and was only gone for about 45 minutes. If I knew she was calling, I would have stayed home for sure!! She did leave a message on the cell phone and said she would call Wednesday....I have class in the morning, but I will be home all day, no matter what!!!! Can't wait, this is going to be the longest week ever!!!
