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."

Should have thought of this earlier but I thought maybe a place where we can list family members that need prayers would be nice.  I personally believe in the power of prayer as many of you do too!

That must be hard. Prayers coming their way.
Sondra, thank you for this - another example how we have all pulled together and supported each other in every way. This is going to be something that will never be forgotten. Praying we can keep the bond as our SRs continue on their journey God Bless you and all our N4M's families and our SR who brought us together.
One of the SR has pneumonia. He is in DIV 946 and my son said he would probably not be able to stay on task to make PIR 10-01. Please pray for him.
Mia - Is this your son or a SR in DIV 946?? Prayers are going up now!

Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4

It is easier to give Thanks when things are going well, not so easy to remember to give Thanks when things are harder. Giving Him the Glory!
