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."

Happy Birthday to Cameron!  I can't believe how quickly this year has gone by.  Man I'm sorry that daddy wasn't able to FaceTime with them for his birthday but glad he did get pictures and a video.  I can't imagine how hard that is :(  And I can't believe baby #2 is almost here - I'm crossing my fingers and my toes that daddy will get to come home!

Happy Birthday!   Our Cameron turned 1 yesterday.  Daddy is still deployed and was all in his feels yesterday.  The WiFi wasn’t working well enough to FaceTime. But he did get some pictures and a video.  Baby boy #2 for them is doing well and on target for the end of August.  Crossing our fingers daddy will get to be home.
