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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

Hello Everyone My name is Scarlett Lillyana Gomez I had to leave this world on 04/12/13, but my mommy and daddy loved me very much. I was only here for such a short time but it felt like forever, but now I'm playing in the clouds with all the other little boys and girls! I love my parents very much and I know they will never forget me! So please never forget your own children and the ones that passed either because they will always have a very special place in your heart and mind! <3 on…

"So Far Away"

Never feared for anything

Never shamed but never free

A laugh that healed the broken heart

With all that it could

Lived the life so endlessly

Saw beyond what others see

I tried to heal your broken heart

With all that I could

Will you stay?

Will you stay away forever?

How do I live without the ones I love?

Time still turns the pages of the book it's burned

Place and time always on my…

Hey Randy,

Surprised to hear the army is out of the picture now. At the risk of sounding nosy, what happened, and what are you thinking now? Ever thought of any other branches of the Military,or decide it's not for you? At any rate, good to hear from you, and I look forward to see what happens next. Hope to see you in chat more often!  Deb

I see you have joined Seabee Moms. Your Sailor will most likely fly out to "A" School the day after PIR. See PIR Day and Liberty During PIR Weekend within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) to help you know how to plan your weekend. What is her rating (job/specialty) going to be? There may be other info I can direct you to.
