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."

Hello, I don't have a sailor on the USS Truman - but I had the good fortune to attend the homecoming in June 2008. A mom saw my clips on my page and thought I had a son here. She sent me this knife.
I thought I would "auction" it off in here - and use the money for the Adopt a Sailor program.

The knife is in the original package - The blade is stainless steel and 2.75" in length. The handle fram is also stainless steel and 4" in length. It is a pocket knife.
"There are monumental pictures on both sides of handle."
Great souvenier. I will also throw in a CD of the homecoming - with over 100 pictures on it. I don't know any of the sailors - but I got a few good shots - they may be your son, hubby or daughter (or wife).

I'm going to start a discussion in here for the "auction" - please go there to "bid."
How about until the end of Feb? That way people who don't get on often have a chance to see it!!!

Hi Susan!!! I'll NEVER forget YOU!! (1) you were the very FIRST Navy mom I met in PERSON (real life) and (2) YOU HELPED ME SEE THE TRUMAN HOMECOMING!! Watching the Sailors "man the rails" has always been something that I loved to see - and thanks to Susan - I did get to see it in person - up close and personal!!!

Thanks - I hope his mom, wife or girlfirend gets a copy. I love it also.
I have many more if your Sailor was on the Truman in June's homecoming.
Have you read the blog on my page about the homecoming?

I was priviledged to get to attend the homecoming of the Truman in Norfolk, Virginia in June of this year. I have a couple hundred pictures. There are a few in a blog on my page. If anyone is interested in seeing the rest of them - just PM me your email address and I can send you a link to either Wal-Mart Photo's or Shutterfly Photos. There is one GREAT one that I absolutely LOVE. I really wish I could find this Sailors mom, wife or girlfriend!!
The pictures are on a blog about "Daddy's first Hug"
