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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

want to thank everyone again for your continued prayers for Yvonne.

  1. She has come a long way with your prayers and love and God;'s healing power! She now no longer uses the wheelchair! She walks around the house and in the back yard and for short walks down the driveway and the sidewalk. God is good! We're believing for the promise He have us before her surgery: I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, declares the Lord, Hebrews 10:23 that says ,Let us therefore hold unswervingly to the hope we profess for He who promised is faithful. We say the surgeon again last Wednesday the 27th and the PA told us Yvonne is actually further along than they thought she would be at this point, Praise the name of Jesus! He removed the no bending, no twisting and no lilting restrictions which makes things a lot easier. She still has pain but it is nothing like it used to be just a few short weeks ago. We are hoping and believing that son she will be able to begin walking without the walker.Outpatient physical therapy starts on May 11th. Please do continue to pray for us Thanks

My PT came yesterday and worked with me mostly with her step stool so I could have more practice with going up stairs.It was very versatile  as it could be 3 to 7 inches in height.  And Praise the Lord, when my OT came later we went upstairs and I was able to take my first shower in 2 months! It felt so good.:)  I am getting much better with my walker, not just walking some but also standing without holding on to it.  I appreciate your prayers for me and John more than I can say! Please continue. I hope all of you have a blessed day!  Yvonne
