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."

He lied to me and I don't know that it's worth it anymore

Started this discussion. Last reply by Navy Wife Ginnibean Aug 27, 2010. 18 Replies

He lied to me about a friendship he has with a woman he goes to school with. He made me believe she annoyed him and I found out that they're pretty good friends. He sees her everyday. They talk on…Continue

Profile Information

A little about me:
I'm actually just a girlfriend, not a mom and I really badly wanted to join the girlfriend/wives/fiances of sailors group because my boyfriend of three years, Michael just recently went off to boot camp and I need someone to talk to who knew what I was going through. I was relieved to find this group existed
I am here to support my
Spouse/Significant other
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was concerned or afraid
The Navy offers opportunities that...
It's a good thing. I was definitely afraid and scared when Michael joined but it's going to make him a better man and help him to do great things.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

I would love to sit by you at PIR.. And we should def introduce our men.. As the days pass I get more excited.. More nervous and anxious.. I feel Bi Polar at times... One minute I could be on cloud nine over something he wrote in his letters and the next I could be crying because of a song im listening to or something.. Just up and down.. There are days I get angry at the Navy for taking my other half away from me.. but I know its for the right reasons and he is doing this to give us a better future.. This is his dream and i will stand behind him because I love him and thats what I need to do.. I know Jordan wouldnt hold me from my dreams and I wont hold his from him..

We will be fine corrina.. I know we will because we love our men and our men love us.. Nothing can change that... Every great solider has an even greater woman standing behind then supporting them and loving them.. Thats what we do.. He may have signed his signature to that contract but he also signed ours.. We signed up to.. We love our sailors with all our hearts and that alone is enough to make it.. Keep your head up dear.. We need to be strong for them because they are being strong for us! Not long and we'll be with them again and all this pain and waiting will be worth it=]

Do you have Facebook?

P.s sorry for rambling

Corrina.. I dont think you are foolish... Jordan called me Tuesday and I only got to talk to him for 7 mins.. I cried on the phone some.. I know it hurt him but I was crying happy tears cause I was talking to him and sad tears because I miss him so much.. I think I made him cry some too..I tried to be strong.. However after we hung up I cried so hard I about threw up.. It just made be feel like I was saying bye all over again.. It was like a tease... Made me realize he is real..this is happening.. Sometimes if feels like this is all a dream.. He never left and I just need to wake up.. So many days I focus on the future... Seeing him march into that drill hall with his head held high knowing he had made it through one of the hardest steps in his life... Knowing he has made his dream come true..and that soon he will be in my arms... That keeps me happy.. Being so proud of him and knowing I stood behind him 100% of the way..Then when he calls it all hits me.. The harsh reality that I have only heard his voice 3 times in 46 days and havent touched his skin or kissed his lips in 46 days.. Makes me remember what I miss.. So no corrina.. I dont think what you're feeling is dumb... Its normal.. Those phone calls are something to Cherish.. But they do make your heart break a little... More then just him left on that plane to great lakes.. Our men took our hearts with them.

It really is great to know someone is out there in the same boat im in.. I do hope our guys know eacother=] would be nice if they did... I think as it get closer the harder it is.. The more I miss him and the more my heartaches..Then I think about the moment I am in his arms again and I can finally feel whole again and that makes me feel alot better..
Were going to try to go to the meet and greet but if we are too tired then we wont.. I want to be well rested for PIR=] Maybe we could sit with eachother?? That would be nice to have someone next to me who feels the way I do...What is your name BTW..and how old are you? If you dont mind me asking haha...Im 23 and you can tell my name by my screen name haha..When I write jordan tonight I am going to ask him if he knows micheal... Hopefully he does..
I hope you get time with him!!! Some time is better then none...We can do this... We have come this far and we can make it the rest of the way!!!! Hang in there=]

Awe!! Your guy sounds like a sweetheart but doesn't like to admit it!!! Jordan has told me most of the guys in his division are pigs.. I guess most of them have their gf's and like 20 ex gf's writing them...He wrote me once saying that the guys were all talking about how they would cheat on there gf's if they are away from them.. Made me promise to never date another guy if he and I would ever break up (Even though we never will=]) because all guys are pigs haha.. I love my guy... I'm sure yours in one of the good ones in the Division!! I'll write Jordan and ask him if he knows him.. Jordan has done so much for me... He is the sweetest guy in the world and I feel so lucky to have him=]
It's sad your guy is a Grad N Go.. Hopefully you can follow him to NC.... It would be nice to have more time with him... I'm kind of hoping jordan is a Grad N Go because since is school is in GL they will transfer him across the street to his school..It'll take like 5 hrs to sign in then they will grant him Overnight Liberty the rest of the weekend=] That would be awesome!!!
I know what you mean about them being gone and feeling like they aren't apart of your life anymore..It hurts.. It almost feels like you have this other life where you love someone in letters... Doesn't seem real.. I miss him holding me and telling me he loves me.. I miss so much its like I wont get it back.. I'm not sure what I'm trying to say.. I haven't forgotten him.. Just the memories of how it feels to have him close aren't as vivid anymore?
It is very nice to have someone to talk to that understands what im going through.. We both miss our guys but it nice to know they are going through this together as you and I are going through this together=]
We should def meet up and say hi to each other at PIR...Are you going to the meet and greet?

I want the days to fly by..But the world hates me and they drag haha.. The days seem to drag but the weeks fly!! I miss my man soo much..Jordan keeps telling me how sexy he looks and how i'm going to be like "Damn thats mine?".. Makes me miss him more!!! My tall guy is the sweetest man I have ever met.. We have been together 2 years and I fall more in love with him everyday! He writes me tells me he wants to marry me and start a Family with me all the time.. He tells me he loves me everyday and couldn't live without me.. He is the type to help anyone and do what he can to make things better for those around him.. He wouldn't hurt a fly.. I could go on and on....
After Boot camp he will be going to A school in GL for AECF... I'll be moving up there not too long after he gets to A school and we are getting Married...So tell me about your guy=] Whats he like?? Whats his job and where will he goto school??

Hmm My boy friend hasn't said anything about the others really.. I'm not sure who his rackmate is.. My boy friends last name is Hendricks... If you just tell your boy friend you are talking to the tall guys girlfriend he will probably know who you are talking about.. My bf is 6' 8" and the tallest in their Division=] I will mention your bf and ask him if he knows him.. I would like to talk to you about them though..would be nice=]
