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! I love that dress(: it was huge, heavy, had a ridiculous amount of underskirt under it and weighed like 20 pounds, I did get a few bruises from it but it was COMPLETELY worth it (: a big princess dress was necessary (;

Wow, Jessica!  Great pictures.  Your dress is beautiful.

Hi all, it's been a while - Jessica, I'm so glad things are going well for you! And Stephanie - good luck,  I hope everything is great for you and Kyle.  My son has graduated A school and just left for sea duty on a destroyer.  Wow. It has been quite a journey.  I have never seen him so confident, I am so proud of him and all our Sailors.  Best to all.

Grant had comp (the final test of nuke A school) yesterday! He did so well, he will be graduating Friday with honors. I am so proud and can't wait to see him get recognized. (: He was also told he will have T track possibly until april. It is going to be so great to have him home! He is working an 11 hour day today. ick.

He will be applying to become an officer soon, and also to become staff at the nuke school here. Can't wait! If neither of those pan out though, we are putting Hawaii as our #1 choice of duty station when he gets to submit a list in a few months.

Such a long way from July! How are everyone's sailors?

YAY sonja!! Congrats to your son! Hes gonna love PC! Ive been there before and its so much fun. There is SO much to do!

Comment by SONJA on January 14, 2012 at 6:04pm

Yay!  After 4 setbacks my son graduated from Navy Dive Camp  ranked #1  and is moving on to Panama City.  He graduated Boot Camp July 1st.  He can't wait to see all his "buds" already down there.  We admire his determination and achievements.  He loves the Navy!

Comment by StephanieC on January 3, 2012 at 1:37pm

It seems as tho this has died down in here quite a bit. But just incase anyone still checks in, i have an update. Kyle and i are no longer together. We broke up again on friday the 30th. things were just too different. the feelings werent the same and it just felt weird. im not bitter toward him. hes not bitter toward me. it just wasnt right for us anymore. i think we lost to much time with the initial split for us to be together again. its was fun while it lasted and we made some amazing memories together that i will cherish forever and never forget. but im moving on this time. there wont be another chance for that relationship. im doing really great right now. i came up to SC and spent new years with jessica at her house this way kyle could still go to my brothers house on new years and things wouldnt be awkward. im glad we got back together when we did because it made me realize that while i still love him, im not IN love with anymore and there is a difference. so now its my time to do what i want for me and not worry about anything else. ive decided what im going to do this year and im gonna do the best that i can to stick with it and not give up. its something ive wanted to do for almost 3 yrs now and its time i stop making excuses and just do it :)

Hope you all had a wonderful christmas and that you all got to either see or talk to your sailors.
