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."

Thanks so much, see I was thinking each monday was a new week. Thanks again =) 

So there just starting firefighting week. I thought they were done with it. =/

And do they count Saturday and Sunday or will it pick back up on Monday. being 5-2???? 

Just got a 20 minute phone call!! It was so great to be able to talk to him for so long. Just 18 more days until they graduate!! :)

Us too!! Here's the skinny. Today is day 4-5 hold, they don't count weekends? He's passed all of his exams with high marks the first time - as most have.This passed Friday they had exam two, while they don't have individual grades yet, one failed and the class as a whole got 4.4. 5.0 is the highest and a 3.0 is required to pass.
Tuesday is id card day. Done boot camp in 2 weeks graduates the 30th.
About the graduation... It starts at 9am, half hour for talking afterwards. Then they have to change barracks, move their stuff... At 1600 they can meet back up with their parents. He has A school in GL, so we have him all weekend except nights!

Oh they got this call as a reward for the 4.8 they got as a division on their drill inspections. Oh and only the girls experienced the scabies. seems compared to the other bugs running around scabies wouldn't be considered the worst.
Wrote this on the phone... Sorry for any auto correct mishaps! Sounds like they are doing well and anxious to move on!!!

Got a call too!!! She wondered how i knew it was her!! Area code baby!!! Yes, I got that tomorrow starts 5-1. So easy to follow since on a mon.  My daughter is fine, just has a cough that she has had for awhile now.
