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."

Profile Information

A little about me:
My name is lucy and I am 19 years old. I am supporting my fiancé Alan who is completing aircrew school right now in Pensacola, Florida. :) We met 8 years ago and have been dating for 4 years. He recently propsed at the O'hare airport in Chicago. My love graduated from RTC November 23. It was amazing seeing him then and for the holidays! I can't wait to find out when i'll see him again!

"There are millions of people in this world, but in the end it all comes down to one. I still panic sometimes, forget to breathe, but I know that there's something beautiful in my imperfections; the beauty that he held up for me to see. The strength that I will never be able to say." <3
I am here to support my
Spouse/Significant other
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
I miss you so much, I need you right now
I try to stay strong but some days I just don’t know how.
The weeks seem like months, and months like years.
I try to hold them back, but down flow the tears.
I keep myself busy through out the day
And when I am alone at night I just pray.
I pray you stay safe while your serving over seas.
At night while I sleep I see you in my dreams.
I think of happier times when you were here
When I could kiss your lips and hold you near.
I miss your smile and your warm embrace
When I see your name on the caller ID my heart begins to race.
Your in all that I see and everything I do
I cant wait till you come back and its just me and you.
So baby stay strong and I will do the same
Because to give up on a love like this would just be a shame.
.:always let your sailor know that he has your heart and love him with all the love God allows us to offer!
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

Thats awesome he came and surprised you!! Thats really exciting and i know what you mean adjusting to them being gone again is the weirdest feeling, i hope its not too long til you see him next!! .. i miss my guy soo much already and he hasnt even been gone for 10 days yet since i saw him! i went down to virginia to visit my guy for the week a little after christmas.. our holidays didnt turn out so well his father and step mom passed away on new years so we both flew back the next day and had a lot to deal with... i cant imagine how hard that must have been on him but i was there trying to support him every step of the way he left the 14th with still a lot on his mind, and ive just been talking to him everyday hoping that things will get easier on him. I made the decision to move down there so middle of february were going to be living together off base!! i'm so excited and i hope it'll make things easier for the both of us, it was a hard decision to make, leaving home, but i love him so much i can't stand being away from him more than i have to be! I hope everythings still going good with you, and I know its hard being apart, if you need anything let me know!! It's nice catching up with you girl!

hey girl, its been awhile, just wondering how you've been doing?! Hope all is well with you!!

Hey girl! Sorry its been so long since I've replied. Its been a crazy couple of weeks. Zack graduated and it was amazing seeing him! I only got to spend one day with him but I loved every minute of it. He's in Connecticut now and I'm going to see him during my spring break I'm so excited! How have you been?

At 12:26am on January 2, 2012, Bryanna said…

I wish I could just cuddle with him all day but our parents are going to be there, so we will probably have very little alone time. And from what I heard sailors aren't allowed to even hold hands with their girlfriends in public and if another sailor sees them then they get reported and punished when they get back on base. I think that's just weird. Haha. But I will definitely try to take a lot of pictures. I thought about ice skating since we both love it.

My New Years was okay. It would have been nice to have Zack here to share it with me haha. I'm glad you guys had a great New Years. I am very very excited. I think I will have fun. I just wish he wasn't leaving for Connecticut the next day. But I'm glad we get to talk more. :) I'm very excited for this trip. Do you have any suggestions on what to do while we're there?

At 8:26pm on January 1, 2012, Bryanna said…

Thank you! And I'm here for you too. I'm not as good with advice as you are but I will certainly try. Make the best of tonight. I know you're probably not looking forward to seeing him go but at least you have more communication now. And pretty soon you guys will be together again. :) My journey to Chicago begins Wednesday, I'm getting nervous about seeing him again. I hope you and Alan had a great New Years. Tell him thank you for being a sailor.

At 12:07pm on December 28, 2011, Bryanna said…
Thank you Lucy. That helped me a lot. I'm glad to have someone to talk to that understands. I hope you and Alan have a great new years :)

Aww haha you're so lucky! I wish I could see Zack. It's driving me crazy! His mom went up there for Christmas and spent the day with him. I am glad he got to call me and text me but it still wasn't enough. I cried during our last phone call and I feel so bad because I'm sure it made him feel bad. I just keep reminding myself that its only 11 more days till I see him again. I hope you enjoy your time with Alan, I'm sure you will. I hope you guys had a great Christmas also.

At 7:28pm on December 18, 2011, Bryanna said…
Yeah haha. I know the feeling. I told Zack im putting myself through this because I love him haha. He has to do sub school and a school so he will probably be there for a year also.
