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:

Dearest God,
Thank you for all who have visited this wall this week. We lift up their prayer concerns and their praises to one who hears all prayers, whether spoken or not.
Keep our sailors healthy and out of harm's way. Help them to know you are continually by their side.

Harvest Ministry--we have a wonderful group of young adults based through our church. Tonight they wrapped up the summer. As we sang and watched videos, and heard how each of these young adults were blessed and what they shared to harvest new people, I was touched.
These are the people who are praying for our sailors. They all ate with my sailor before he left for boot camp. It was awesome--

Deb & Mary, You have echoed my feelings. May our God bless all.

Eternal God, We lift up Kathy as she reaches for her son Ryan. May he find a way to clear his mind and be able to communicate with those he loves so they may help steer him around any obstacles he faces.
We also lift up JoAnn as she prays for Anthony. Please open his mind and soul so he may be receptive to that one special person who can speak you word. May he find love within himself so he can find the love that only God provides.
Dear God, we never can comprehend the loss of an innocent life. Please be with Nan and Anthony--that he find a ship mate who understands his sorrow at the loss of his sister. May he find comforting words that are directed only to him through the chaplain. The loss of a sibling in such a way is sometimes more than we think we can ever bear. Please let him know his sister was received into loving arms and that someday she will speak with him.
Please be with Kathy as her son Joe works within the demands of the Seals. We trust you to place someone within his boot camp ship with whom he can pray.

And Lord, we praise you for those names of Gail, Steve's Mom, Lisa, Ebony, Karen, Naomi and others who have sent such positive messages our way. May we all feel the strength of Eagle's Wings as we reflect upon all the messages on this page.

Please bless all who visit this prayer wall and let them find comfort from all who care. We ask that you watch over our sailors and their families. We ask that you watch over us and lead us back to you.
