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."

Requesting prayers for my father. He will be going into the hospital tomorrow morning to have a dye test done looking for blockages. Please lift him up!
Will do!
The power of prayer is what keeps us moving on. Prayers for all of our SR and their families ongoing!!!
Requesting prayers for Tiffany's shin splints to heal before her final PFT on Friday and that she doesn't cause them to become "fractured" during the run :*(
I'll keep her in my prayers! That would be horrible, to get this far and have that happen.
Will do! She has been in my prayers daily!
Thank you!
" I will walk by faith..." (great song by Jeremy Camp
Please pray for understanding for my 4yr old son, he is missing his "buddy" (dad) right now. He needs some "Man Time" as we call it.
I can only imagine LTLY! Must be so hard for him to be away from his daddy for so long! You and your family are in my prayers!
This is a good idea to start this Sondra.... and yes I will be in prayer for your father.... along with our SRs and their divisions... Tiff's shin splints.... and for the little ones missing their dads... It is hard for them to understand.. we need to keep Liz (if I remember right) who is waiting on her little one to be born..... and also for my daughter... that wait is so hard and especially when the daddys are deployed and away... . I am so glad to be part of this group of women the support and friendship is so important....
