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."

Blue Candles. The possibilities are endless, anything goes!  Really it is whatever you want to bring. There is a dollar store and a Walmart right across the street for people to buy baskets if flying in. You can use gift bags,buckets, think "outside the box".

You bring it yourself to the Meet and Greet (M&G) and we'll raffle it off.  OR you can mail it to the Navy Lodge and we’ll get it to the M&G for you!

UPDATE ON RAFFLE TICKET SALES:::: Each raffle ticket will be $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00, or if you are really enthusiastic, $20 for 25 tickets!!

Alert,Alert,Alert!!!!! You all are making me wish. I had another recruit graduating. LoL seeing. All your post about the BASKETS. Makes me so excited. My Sailor PIR on Nov. 1 2013. Our group collected 48 BASKETS and raised $1829.00. You all are reminding me of all the fun our group had with putting them together and even more fun when we got to see everyone's creations. Our BASKETS really brought our group much closer as a group and many of us are still very close. I wish you all luck and hope you all are having as much fun as our group did. If I can be of any assistance please let me know. Main objective is to have fun and pay it forward. All your efforts will come back to you. Sarge is a good man. He puts on a nice dinner and gives out a lot of information. Embrace the night before you all see your new Sailors. Congrats to all . Hang in there soon you all will be getting those I'm a Sailor calls. Your in the home stretch now. Carol M.
