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."

I had both of my babies at St Joes.  Back in the day when they gave new parents a lobster dinner.  I liked the hospital.

in fact, my "baby" is 27 today.

Hi Tucson!  

The Arizona Moms group is having a potluck Meet & Greet in Mesa, AZ this Sunday, 8/7, from 5 - 8 pm to meet Admiral Scott Sanders, Deputy Commander, US Second Fleet.  It is being held in the Fine Gun Room at the Bass Pro Shop near the intersection of 101 and N202 (Red Mtn Fwy).

 If anyone is planning to be up here, we would love to have you join us - we have forty-five attending so far, so it's going to be a lot of fun!!  

Click here for your invitation ~  INVITATION AND RSVP 

The address and details are on the invitation, and once you click "yes," you'll see a page with potluck info.  But you DON'T have to bring a dish to attend, we have plenty and your presence is what counts!  PM me with any questions :) Hope to see you Sunday!

Hi Whitney,  I know Carondelet St Joseph's has private rooms, I had all 3 of my girls there.  I loved everything about that hospital!  And TMC has recently made private rooms which are very nice as well.  ST Josephs is a smaller hospital and has a smaller patient to nurse ratio.  My Dr is Judith Riley.  Her office is on  Carondelet right across form the hospital, I love her!

You might have info. What Hospitals have private rooms for New mothers? Also do you have an OBGYN you recommend?

Sue- No, Where we were taking photos (a 6 block wear house district). There were at least 4 other wedding parties. We decided to do a bride war photo. But they had to have at least 3 guys over 6'5 it would have been an unfair fight. hahah
