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."

Profile Information

A little about me:
My boyfriend of almost two years left for boot camp in mid-January. He is on Ship 02 Division 918. I know him as Sutter but out there in boot camp, everyone will know him by his last name or his REAL first name, Timothy. He is the most important person in my life.

I'm a full time college student, majoring in Journalism with a concentration in PR. I am a proud member of the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority and my chapter's current Sisterhood Coordinator. I work at a jewelry gallery that my mom owns and I volunteer at Camp Okizu, a summer camp for children who have/have had cancer. I am also a leukemia survivor, which is why I volunteer my time each summer to give back to the place that helped me through the hardest time in my life.
I am here to support my
Spouse/Significant other
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?

Sutter needs my support. Even though I'm so sad to be so far from him, I'm proud of what he is doing. It is an honorable thing to do and he needs me to remind him that I'm proud and I'm here for him no matter what. My letters get him through the hard days and sending them is the only way I can be there for him right now.

Quotes from Me and My Boy:

Bri: Hahaha! You'll have to dance with me if you want to get your hat back!


Bri: So your real name is Timothy, but you go by your middle name, Sutter? I should just call you Tutter.


Bri: So... People keep asking me if we're dating.

Sutter: Me too. I never know what to say.

Bri: Yeah, I've been telling people no.

Sutter: Well, do you want me to ask you out?

Bri: No, I want to ask you.


Bri: I think it's time we got a fish together.


Sutter: You killed Chameli??!!??


Sutter: Have the sweetest of dreams, Honey B.

Bri: No, YOU have the sweetest of dreams.


Bri: Look! I got glasses too!! Hehehehehe ;)


Sutter: I love you, my sweet Honey B of mine.


Sutter (in a letter recently): I tried to draw you a rose, but it looks retarded. I'm not an artist.

Have you ever sat down and thought about your wedding? Like really thought about all the little details?

If you're married, I know you must have. If you're engaged, you probably have. But I am neither of those. Though, I guess I could say I'm pre-engaged, because we have talked about it and we are planning on getting engaged and married within 2-4…


Can't we just jump?

Lately it feels like nothing else matters but what's between he and I. It feels like the only things I look forward to are his next call and getting to be in his arms and him getting down on one knee and asking me that question. There's a lot more going on in my life, and yeah a lot of it is good too, but I care more about him than anything. 

Some days I just want to quit my life and go to wherever he is. Which is stupid. I have so much going for me, and I have so much to do still.…

Creamy vanilla goodness, with ribbons of decadent caramel throughout. Throw in some chocolate cups of caramel and you've an orgasm in your mouth. But if you've ever tried to drown your sorrows in ice cream, you know it doesn't really work.

They might make it seem like it's helps on TV, when a girl gets dumped or her boyfriend lies to her.…

I'm broke. And not only am I broke, I have nowhere to turn. I wish Popeye could help me out. Especially since when he was broke I was always the one who helped him out. But he can't, he's all the way in Illinois. My parents can't help me out because they're just too busy. And my friends just won't and I wouldn't ask them to. I would never ask Popeye either but I know he would help me because he loves me and he knows I've…

I know how it is .. I'm very proud also but I still don't understand alot of this.. Stephen and I live together so its alot harder than I thought. Like you said its weird still going about your daily routine and he's gone. I've gone trhough many diffrent emotions, I've been sad, and angry and happy all at the same time.. I like too call it my bipolar moments. It hasn't been that horrible for me, I've kept busy, so it made time go by fairly quickly. You would of asked me 6 weeks ago I don't know, but now that I'm so close to PIR I'm just excited! I know everyone's situation is different. I guess I got lucky. That he will be in school in CT where I can see him on his free time. Just hang in there. If you really want to be with him.. I know its hard and truts me I know what you feel. If you need anything just let me know! Just hang in there we're less than 2 weeks away. Hopefully I'll meet you at PIR..
