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."

I would love to see your garden pics...I have such fun planning and trying new things. Even planted a few blackberry bushes a few years ago. They really took off got my first ( few handfuls ) this summer...working on trimming and, yes , some bulb planting. My friend gave me some stick Allyum... Going to try that this time....we'll see....
Safe travels and much joy to you, your SR and your family! Hugs to you too!

Hey Kathyc,

I can't wait for next Friday!! I have done this once with my oldest but just
knowing what's ahead is pretty thrilling!! SR is not Nuke, but also Sumariner.

I love my garden. Good year for growing, 200 tomatoes, 50 cucumbers , at least 70 eggplants as well as cherry tomatoes in orange, purple and stripes, watermelon, grapes and a whole sep herb garden. It hasr really been a lot of fun, but, as you say, time for transplanting and trimming... and Tulip bulbs!!!

I will be posting pictures for sure and thinking good thoughts for you and your SR!!

Hugs, Johanna
