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."

Graduation 26 days, but who's counting!


oh, only 26 days, i hadn't noticed...hah!!! getting very excited and nervous at the same time!

SIXTY-ONE degrees in Chicago??? in MARCH??? crazy! hope its that nice when we visit our SR's! We are starting to discuss Meet 'n Greet options... inbox me if you'd like to get together with other USS TRITON 12/097 thur night before PIR.

HI Guys, Sorry I haven't been on, but lots has happened.  My son is home from Deployment (thank God, safe and sound) my sister is home on leave (for 30 days) and my minor emergencies.  BUT all in all, am glad my babies are home.  So I got a letter from my adopted daughter and here is what she said,  The Tritons passed their Div Inspection with a 5.0 and they got the flag to carry when they march.  So far the Div. has 6 flags to carry for graduation and if they get 2 more they get into the Hall of Fame.  She sounds in very good spirits and they all can't wait till Graduation.  Just wanted to give you all a heads up. OOOOO, she also said that they may get 2 phone calls (mine didn't come yesterday saturday,) and one more on the 26th, so keep those phone charged and ready ladies.  Great news for the TITONS....See you all soon.  I will keep you posted as I get more information.  Oooooo, ALSO she said that she will be getting her orders for A school on the 28th.  So be on the lookout for that date too.  She believes her battlestations will be the sunday/monday on teh week of graduation.  

Great news all in all for the USS TRITONS!

Thank you for this news Jacque! I haven't heard from Tori for 9 days. But it's good to know her Div. is doing so well, that means she is too.I am so proud of all those SR's.

HIYA ladies, I am having a devil of a time finding the fb page.  I am not sure why. I will try again tonight.  Trapped in OZ, I tried the link and it wouldn't take.  Not sure if my computer skills are diminishing or my lack of fb time is really playing against me right now.  I will reset my privacy settings and see if you can find me that way.
