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 can't believe it has been 25 days since we PIR'd.  Where does the time go, I remember when we were 25 days until we got to see our Sailors and how miserable we all were cause it was right around the Christmas holiday.  I miss all you guys.

Hey Deb!!  Doing pretty good.  That's awesome about seeing your son once a week.  I'm soooooooooooooo jealous. heehee xoxo

Comment by DebBon / Ship7 Div 052 on February 11, 2011 at 9:52pm
Hey Kim, How are you doing?
Comment by DebBon / Ship7 Div 052 on February 11, 2011 at 9:52pm

Thank you for the comments. Yes I did concentrate on the life of the kids, I'm sure things will all work out. Just different right now.  Valentine's Day isn't a big deal for us and I have been out of work for over year and a half and money is very, very tight right now so we aren't spending anything extra.  It will all work out just needed to vent :o) Thanks.

Kathy, my Kevin is at GL for A school so I do get to see him at least one day a week when we go out there (we live 50 miles from GL) so I'm looking forward to this Sunday.  The only thing is he has to have 2 additional Sailors with him so we enjoy what time we have with all of them.  It's nice getting to know the others that were in the same division as Kev.

Hi Ladie!!!  It's been awhile since I've been on here.  Miss you all, bad...
Comment by Christine(ship02 Div909) on February 11, 2011 at 9:10pm

I miss my son too!  It's definately nice being able to text or Skype with him.  It's still not the same as if he were here.  I'm happy for him that he has chosen the Navy as a direction in life. It's just a little hard to let go of him. 

Deb-  Valentine's Day is right around the corner. You and your husband need to start "dating" again!  Plan a surprise date for him/you.  We spend so much time giving to our children. We forget about ourselves.
