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."

Time to have some fun, & raise some money to help Sarge & Mrs Sarge at the same time! :o)


Please help and spread the word through out your Division Groups!
 We are short on days now (2 DAYS!!) OMG!!! (o:

All the proceeds go to Sarge and his wife. They provide and purchase the food and hold this amazing reception for all of us to feel welcome and get information about our SRs – just because we are families/lovedones of Sailors! 
Let’s Pay it forward, Pay it forward!

 

Anyone that would like to put together a basket filled with items to represent your home state or items you have crafted, baked, or borrowed (& forgot to return to the neighbor that moved) ;o)   Maybe you crochet, or paint, or knit, or woodwork.

Holiday themes: Thanksgiving is here, Christmas is coming, Football teams(go Bears!!) lol.. We can have many different baskets with many different things in them: Sports items, Challenge Coins. 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!

So far I have a basket from Illinois coming....anyone else....would love to see some friendly competition between states or teams! :o)

ANYONE ELSE??? 

YOU ALL ARE AMAZING - THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! 
Remember, ANYTHING goes!!

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!!  

Please if you DO NOT want to participate, that is OKAY too!!  This was just something I saw other PIR groups do and thought it would be FUN!!! There is NO REQUIRMENT to do this!! There is no pressure!! If all you want is to participate by buying tickets thats AWESOME!!

Thank you!!  This is just to be fun & stress free & say THANK YOU to an amazing couple!

Just a quick preview of something I found at lunch to add to the Florida basket (I'm having to ship it and I swore nothing else breakable, but couldn't resist this). Several items are beach themed, but we are part of the Deep South as well, lol. Thought this would fit in with the wine conversation from a few weeks ago :)

OMG! loving this!! I have one...must win this one!! :)

I don't even know where to start!

THANK YOU!!!!!

I was so worried that I couldn't make this happen to thank Sarge, and each of you, stepped up to help me!!!

There are several others who told me they couldn't do this, but couldn't wait to buy tickets - THANK YOU TOO!!!

Without the "buyers" we have nothing!!

I am so unbelievably proud of what we could do in a week!

Please don't forget to let your Divisions know whats happening so they come prepared! :o)

THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! I cannot wait to meet you all!!!

Tina, I am so pleased I can bring a basket and buy tickets.  I might be missing something, but what does your above message mean, "Please don't forget to let your Divisions know whats happening so they come prepared!"  ?



I don't want to miss something I am supposed to be prepared for....  Thanks.

BoomMom, Thank you!!! you aren't missing anything. ;)

I had heard from previous M&G Raffles like this, even though there was a lot of folks that donated, and info was posted every where possible, a ton showed up with the "we didn't know this was happening".....I could only Post about this in the Groups I belong to,so if each of you posted about the Raffle in your Divisions, then I know every place has been told! :)
To Tina and all, Very nice. Have fun be safe and congratulations. Big thank you from everyone if rom PIR 11-1-13.
