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."

While we were in St.Augustine, last weekend, the town was having a "tea party". We could not believe it! Looked like pictures from the sixties. But we made light of it, laughed a little and honked at them, they liked that. LOL We're all from small town USA, we would have to gather up half of our state to form that kind of assembly. I really liked the town though, and I could have stayed there and looked about for a day or so. Lots of historical stuff to see.

Kati's mom, we just spent the weekend there and I did see the Hue City. We stopped and look at it for a long time. It looked really neat. I would find out if you can tour her ship. Drew is on the John L Hall and we were able to go aboard! We loved being able to see what he has been doing. Andrew insisted on taking us to "Singletons", it is very close to the base and it looks like a dive! But the food was good,+it's right on the water. We took the ferry and drove around, and that was neat. We drove to St.Augustine and ate at "Reef's" it was very good. St. Augustine is a really neat old town.

I enjoyed the base, more than anything. We saw his ship come in and go out.

Everyone in Jacksonville and Mayport has a bicycle so watch those bikers!
