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:

Glad to be your friend!!  Now you can access my page - altho the pics are getting older.  Time to do some updating I suppose...  Also, know we can PM each other if we want to talk about something not on a public site.

I hope that you are warm, safe, dry & have lights there in Edison.  We are still alright, altho right after 1pm we had a LOT of flickering lights, but they managed to stay on.  Thank goodness.

Hi!  I left you a message on Molly's page.  But, I also was looking back in the Special Hugs discussion & found on page 72 messages both Pat L. in IL and I had left for you.  Did you see them?  There is still time to get involved in the Special Hugs (aka SH) mission for October if you'd like. We always post what we are shipping and the number of box(es) so we know how we are doing at getting items requested & so that I can give our POC an estimate of what to expect.  Anyway, feel free to just jump right in -- after the storm is over!!

PS  Love your pics!

Hi Katze, my daughter is in class 160, alpha. I crochet and would love to make an afghan like that for my daughter and future son in law who is a Marine. LOL  Can you tell me where she got the pattern!!?

Tyler was in division 111 at GL. What division was your son in? I'll ask Tyler if he knows your son.

I love the picture of the cake from your son's going away party.  When I viewed it on my phone I was able to zoom in and read the writing on the bottom left corner.  On the website I can't read it.  Can you please tell me what it said.  All I remember was that it brought tears to my eyes when I read it.  Thanks.
