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."

Support is the most important thing to any person considering joining the Navy. When my fiance told me he was thinking about joining, I thought what a great opportunity this was going to be for him and for us. I am so unbelievable proud to be a soon to be Navy wife, I can hardly stand it!
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

It is a great way to find families in your area and even help plan meet and greets. We also have some packing parties for our troops overseas getting together.

Be sure and let me know if you have any questions!

Heather - did you get your letter yet? I think it's all different as we got our box yesterday and the letter today. Got everything in 7 days. Mailings probably happen in waves. It's interesting to read their comments at end of letter. Stuff like "it sucks" and " I hate it here" is probably pretty common. Plan on writing and encouraging, that's what we do best.
