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."

A little about me:
I worked for 18 yrs for USAirways. When it closed I opened my own ladies gym. Was able to keep it open for 3 years then the hurricanes hit us hard (we lost our home and had to have it re-built-you may have seen us our story on CNN) then closed the business. Then worked for 2 years for SunTrust until they downsized in Nov.08. Now I am a licensed insurance agent for Liberty Natl/United American. Our 3 beautiful kids are our world. Happy to be healthy and look forward to a better 2009.

Financing assistance from the Navy for their sailors

Posted on April 29, 2009 at 9:03pm 7 Comments

Does anybody know of where or whom to contact regarding help with obtaining a loan to buy a car? Our son has his own car but he wants to buy a new (used car) car that will require him to get a loan. He's only 19 so he has no credit history other than his auto insurance and his checking account. He applied online (since that's what his bank told him to do) and they immediately turned him down.

also, Mail seems to be having a hard time getting to the new addy, it gets there but takes just a little bit longer. I am thinking its because it brand new house! the kids have been having a bit of trouble at the Post office....They have to go and get the mail cause the mail person is not delivering ALL the mail at once...can't figure it out!! They have complained maybe it will change, we can only HOPE!

Hi Jody,
the letter does explain it. and i've told everyone, that if everyone sent $1.00, we'd lots of money for fabric and shipping. And sending it on is a perfect way to help!
I'm sorry that you lost your job. You have a great looking family.

Jody, no letterhead, but have a logo that you can add to the top of a letter.
send me an email and I will send you the logo and you and copy and paste it to a letter. Sorry, we are still in the "building stages"
