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."

Misty. I sent you a friend request asking your sons name. I think our kids are good friends. My cell to text or call is 623-451-5743.

My sons name is T.J. or Troy.


So she calls and we are talking. My husband gets home early from work, while we are on the call. She got to talk to him. My son has been home for a couple of days (he moved back actually) so she got to talk to him. Then I'm outside walking around my driveway talking to her and her best friend drives up in front of my house (she was going to give me a letter to give to my sailor). I tell my daughter hang on just a second I have a surprise for you and put her on the phone. She said the only thing that could make that phone call more perfect was if her grandmother could get on the phone. Grandma unfortunately is flying in tonight so wasn't here in time. But 4 out of 5 aint bad!!!
I'm looking for the parents of Hunter. He is from Alabama
I have just heard from Sam's friends that he has called them first!!! I am going to hug and strangle him!!!  Still waiting!!  My luck he will be out of phone minutes!!!
Yae!!!! I got my call too.  He is ecstatic beyond belief.  Still sick, but won't go to doctor because he wants to march on Friday.  He said they are being treated really well.  He said 267 has the most flags.  Our babies did it, and did it together.
What is the address for the meet n greet? I need to put it into my gps...
200 N Green Bay Rd, Waukegan, Il 60085
Thank you
