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:

Your Uncle will be in the prayers of mercies for good health and attention by the doctors.

Dear God, We pray for Jan, A Southern Belle's great nephew. May he be blessed with the same God's fortune as you showed one of our church members. She is now a healthy middle school student, thanks to prayers and skillful physicians and their teams. Be with Jan's niece as she faces all the uncertanties that comes with the diagnosis, the valleys her family will climb and the ache in her heart for her baby's health.

Lord I just come boldly before you and lay these two babies on our lap I pray for your loving arms around them ... I ask that you would heal them of the diseases they have.. I plead the blood of Jesus over these babies and curse the diseases in the name of Jesus and ask your Holy Spirit to wash over them.I ask you Lord, the GREAT PHYSCIAN to guide the doctors in all their decisions. I also ask for your comfort for the families and especially the moms and grandmas...a mothers heart just wants to fix things...and this is them how to trust you for what ever may be next in these little lambs lives...We love you and bless you Lord ...AMEN

We hold you in our hearts and prayers as you become accustomed to your "new norm." Please know that we are hear to share your cares. May your soon to be daughter in law draw strength from you and may you both form a bond as tight at blood.
God Bless

Dear God,
Thank you for the safe travels to PIR on 8/8. May everyone who attended be touched by the glories they witnessed. And may those who could not attend know that our love encompassed every sailor who has been and will be through that ceremony before they go to their next journey.
Special blessings to RDC Husk for his leadership and honest caring for his Division. And to LT Commander Riley and his aid as a Chaplain.

Please pray for our Seabee Sailors that are currently stationed in Afganistan. Thru our Adopt A Sailor program for August, we are supporting 38 males and 8 females that have been deployed there since May. If you would like to drop them a card, please send me a note for their address or you can find it and more details on the Molly Adopt A Sailor forum. Thank you for remembering our Sailors stationed overseas in your prayers.

Thank you for Angela and Nan--for their words of encouragement and motherly love. God, you asked us to do a phenominal job with the children you entrusted us with. Please continue with our sailors and keep them safe.
