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:

OMG I saw your little boy's sailor onsies on the PIR forum and was wondering where you got them? I have looked everywhere and haven't found anything so cute! I absolutely LOVE the camo romper!

Hi, thanks for the comment and invite!  That must have been a little strange thinking I might be her, lol!  My son is 24.  I'm happy to see someone else in the same Div.  I've only see a couple of others in 157. Hope to meet you at grad :)

I read that you haven't made plane reservations yet. Have you ever flown Frontier? We have used them for a few years now and never had a problem. If you go directly to their website they have 3 different pricing "tiers" to choose from. The top tier allows you to change your ticket if needed at no charge.

YEARS ago when Chris was an infant I flew with him and my mother-in-law back to Omaha. He was 2 months old at the time, and I used a front pack to carry him in while in flight. I had also taken his car seat, and after we took off a flight attendant told me that they had many open seats in the back of the plane. I decided to move, I had an entire row to myself and since I had his car seat, he slept in his car seat and I knew he was safe. Granted this was 19 years ago, but I thought I would share that experience with you. ttyl,

That's great news! I did get a letter but it was very short. Chris has a gf that he would rather spend his time writing to, and I understand that. Chris passed his PFA and the 1 1/2 mile run,so now he can get down to really studying. Studying does not come easy to him, but I know he can do it.

Are you planning on attending PIR? How old is your little boy?  I remember when Chris was that little...time goes by SO fast.

Talk to you soon. Monica
