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."

Congratulations!!!  So glad things went well!  You are coming to Michigan on my birthday!  

Comment by WaterLily on May 17, 2023 at 10:39am

Oh such wonderful news!!!  Congratulations on the special little addition to your family!  I'm so excited to hear it went well after the long labor and that everyone is doing great.  June 10 seems far off but it'll be here before you know it.  

I sure hope they got all that dirt moved before they headed to the hospital LOL!!!  

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MMN(Vet) on May 17, 2023 at 10:33am

Baby Oliver was born at 12:05am 5/13/23.  Almost 60 hours in labor but everyone is doing great!  He ended up being smaller than they thought - 9lbs 3oz, but a lot longer - 22.5" long! They were in the hospital from Wednesday until Sunday afternoon.  Talk about exhausting.....I can't wait until we head to MI on 6/10.

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MMN(Vet) on May 10, 2023 at 12:15pm

Well they just got a call from the hospital telling them they have nurses there now and to head over!  So they are on their way!  Gah this is crazy.......

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MMN(Vet) on May 5, 2023 at 6:38pm

They had their final ultra sound today - technician told them that Oliver is weighing in at 9lbs 11 oz +/- 8oz!  Boy I hope they are incorrect lol!

WaterLily - I don't know how much rest they will get.  C wanted her dirt for her garden boxes delivered on Monday.  Well the MI weather didn't cooperate so it got pushed to Tuesday and then finally delivered yesterday!  They spent part of the day moving it to the back yard and her plan is to get it finished up this weekend - and all her veggies planted!  They'll finish moving it today and then let the planting begin.  I told her this might put her in to labor lol!
