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."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Anyone else scrapbook or make cards?

I finally made my scrap room. It is very nice to have a place that I can shut the door and leave projects in mid point.  I do keep finding that I rearrange things way too often. Does anyone else do that? 

I started my own  memory book about my son and his wife, as they go on their journey in the Navy.

Hello to all scrappers! Anyone missing they're Navy LO?  

Comment by PKM on June 10, 2018 at 9:49pm

Discovered that the local art museum is very glad to get any scraping stickers, paper, cut outs or other stuff I have too much of. They use it for make and takes.

Hugged my son one last time before he and his wife head to Virginia for schooling. So sad I'm going to miss them,, so excited for their new adventure, so PROUD  of their courage to serve. 

Making a scrapbook of their Navy life with help keep them close.

A moment to remember all who have served and are currently serving in our Military. God Bless them all!

Had to move my scrapbook area, AGAIN! Getting new windows and I had to get it away from the window. I am finding that I really need to see what I have and then I am more likely to use it.

Started my Navy son's scrapbook.  It was fun and made me even more proud of him.  I had him journal his experiences and put them into a page protector.

If you have a chance to go to a scrap show and have a day or two of cropping on site. Take advantage of it. I have been to two of these events and they give me a chance to only focus on card making or scrap booking. I will attend one tomorrow and start a scrap book for may Navy son and his wife.

Found gel pens and glitter pens at the store 5 BELOW. They are not good for photos, but ok for cards.Also, Wakmart has the best price on 'glue' tape

Saw a 'Scan and Cut' on QVC, I wanted to buy it so badly. However, I need to use what I have.  Don't go to their sales page, it is like having an addiction (to scrap supplies).  I  must say out loud, "I have enough, I have enough!"  HA HA!
