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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

Blondie - these sweet FUN pictures gave my heart a lift .

Thank you

What darlings. And their eyes - so much love. 

And yes, know that feeling - when you type out the details and the computer goes - "What - oh you wanted that to be seen or printed . Not deleted. " And yes, you said it perfect. 

take care and have a good week.

 I wish that for all you  hugs

Hi All !!!!

So glad to see all the gossip. And Miss - weather is gossip - so thank you

Surprised not see Kim - but she had her birthday and she just might be recovering from all that celebrating.

Hubby and I celebrated our 45th Wedding Anniversary on Saturday.  But we didn't go until Sunday - we were needed to babysit. That's ok - we had a cake sent to us from dil Dania - sailor's wife - and the kids were so excited to see a cake mailed!  But we did go out ALL day until late yesterday - Sunday - too much celebrating . When we got home I threw up dinner. Either too much grease in the Fish and Chips or that Guinness cheese Cake had too much Guinness. 

fingers crossed i can get some pictures up to share. Shark would like to see all of you too.  She will be 45 years old on August 11th.  And she is on major walk about. ALL over - tried to climb the stairs - the closet door and her latest thing - trying to crawl into the shower will hubby. All I heard one morning was : "Get out of her".  Look to see the turtle running out of the bathroom.  NO I did not get a picture!

Thanks Nuke mom for keeping us alive. And TX - at this moment I cannot help you out.  But I will send positive vibes. 

Hey maybe I should start that Positive List again.  I would list all the things us Pam Moms needed and think about them every day.  Ok - doing that . TX you are on the top of the list. 

Blondie - when are you NOT at work?!  the day you actually retire - we all are going to party!!! Until then - one step at a time and BREATH!

Hey - that reminds me - Kim was talking about retiring in September- any one hear anything?

hey need to split - stomach is not happy. going to lay down  hugs
