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."

I would very much like one too I just dont know what yet, what do you think a good deadline is?

We got another letter today. It was written 3 days before the letter we received last Friday. I guess they are not coming out in order.

So great for you!!!!

New...have you been hearing from A since the last letter?

My daughter said that they are now allowed to write letters during the week but they still don't go out until Sunday... 

Hello ladies, I heard from my daughter today.  She said she aced her swim test, and everyone in the division survived "Hell Week", and that their division might make Hall of Fame.  They're all hoping.  Oh, she burned herself again, ironing... on the elbow this time.  Her middle name is "Grace".  She said "Grace, I have none" lol

Thats funny.  Grace is a good thing, it sounds like she has lots of grace though surviving Hell Week!  I wonder what Hall of Fame is? Must score high on all testing I am assuming? 

WOW... thanks for the update on Hell Week. My daughter said they scored above average for possible honor division. The are all busting there butt!!! I'm so glad they are all working as a team. SOOOOOO excited!!!

Hi Moms,

  I am bacjk from Tucson. I received my son's questionnaire on Friday. He said they are receiving flags cuz they're doing so well?

That is wonderful.  I just read that it is possible that their division is  being adopted for christmas?

Thanks for the Card sweetie.  You were a mind reader bc I sent one to you and others too!

Meant alot to me.  God Bless

Calls are coming!!!! We just got off the phone with our daughter!!! They are doing well...
