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."

I think they might deduct before because my SRs first pay check (which was on the 1st) was way less than the one that just came through..

Hey you, 

How are you doing?

Happy Friday - how are you holding up ???  I haven't been able to spend much time on the site this week.  Been busy at work and at home.  It's really made the time go by faster so I'm glad.  I was thrilled to get a call AND a letter from my daughter yesterday !!!  She was so excited she went on and on; I had a hard time hearing her because she caught me while I was traveling on the bus but it was SO good to hear from her.  I see a difference in her already, a GOOD difference.

How about you, have you gotten anything?

You'll probably get your phone call tomorrow since your man is a different division. Hang tough. He'll call in the later afternoon so keep that phone on you !! Hopefully his division is doing better than Collin's so you get a longer phone call :)

He is active. He'll only be in Great Lakes for 3 weeks cause he already got his job. So all he'll be doing there is physical training for his job. So then he will come home in beginning of December and they will base him.

Awh bummer :/ well at least you get to see him !! I know I'm very thankful I'll get the weekend to spend with him. And yes I'm hoping he gets that Monday off. So do you think you'll go visit him when he's at A school ?
At 2:11pm on October 2, 2012, Kassandra (Ship 13 DIV 366) said…
Yeah I definitely know how you feel. It can be very frustrating at times. But this is the life we signed up for. So we just gotta stay strong. I am flying to Great Lakes on Nov 8th with his parents. I still don't know where we're staying they're taking care of all that and letting me know when it's all set in stone. What about you ?
At 1:53pm on October 2, 2012, Kassandra (Ship 13 DIV 366) said…
Lucky !! Yeah I'm hoping I get more this week. And yes I've been writing him everyday as well. I know isn't that crazy how we haven't talked to them like we used to for a whole month?! I don't know how I do when will you guys get married ? Lets cross our fingers for a phone call soon !
At 1:32pm on October 2, 2012, Kassandra (Ship 13 DIV 366) said…
Good, good ! Yes I know what you mean. I was a wreck the first week with him gone. He A school is in Great Lakes, so I'm happy about that. What about yours ? How many letters have you gotten ? I've only heard from him twice.
