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."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass is no longer needed to drive on to base for parking.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Hi Phoenixmom 

I hope it helps. It is the product our radiation therapist recommends for our patients. Let me know how it responds in a week or two.

Hi PhoenixMom

I wonder if this product would help your radiation burns? I’ve heard good things about it. I believe you can get it at Amazon. Good luck!

Let me know if I need to try to send a smaller picture

I got this a while ago, but never replied yet!  I'm so sorry for your loss!  I'm assuming this all happened fairly recently!  You are a fighter!  And very busy!  Praying you felt God's strength and peace through all of this!  What do people do without God?!?!  Praying your colonoscopy tomorrow brings positive results and shows something that can easily be fixed!

Thanks for accepting my friend request!!!  I sent you a picture!  I hope it works lol

Oh!  Also, the reason I friend-requested you is because I've gathered that you are fighting cancer?  And today, I think I saw it was breast cancer.  I've had the "scare" before, but it was just pre-cancer.  But I know (as we all do) others fighting cancer of various kinds.  Is there any specifics I can pray for you?  I wanted to ask this privately, and you don't need to answer if it's too nosey.  I'd understand.

He is Master-At-Arms (Is that acronym MA?).  A school is in San Antonio.  Any help would be appreciated.  Although I think I won't join an A school group until he gets closer to graduation.  Everything right now is overwhelming enough without going there quite yet.  Lol  Thanks to you and everyone else for all this info.  I was just thinking last night how this time right now would be such a struggle if i hadn't found  I would be clueless.  I like to know details or as much about what is going on in my kids' lives.  I don't know if it is a control issue or not, but I also like to know to celebrate the good things with them and help in the bad times.  ☺

You have a beautiful family! I wonder sometimes if my other two get jealous because I know they can tell I am focused on my son and navy things so I try to keep quiet on it LOL although they’re dealing with it in their own way by sleeping in his room or my son wearing his shirts. I’m glad you got to spend time with your son :)

At 6:14pm on September 9, 2020, VintageGal said…

Hi I enjoy talking to you! Yeah we’re doing pretty good over here it was so awesome getting the form yesterday even if it was just seeing his handwriting! I’m so glad your son is home with you that’s so awesome! I wonder when will be the next time that I see my son. I don’t know if he should use days to come home for Christmas or if we should go to Texas and have him take liberty so he doesn’t use up his leave. Have any recommendations?

Grocery shopping in the heat, is not my favorite. I take Ice chests and insulated bags with me. Your heat has been higher than ours and is no fun. I prefer to go in the early morning, but my time out of the house has been in the afternoon more - so I understand. I overdid it myself this last week, so doing the same thing, just lounging today with the family. - At least for a little bit. 

Has anyone suggested to you, to get Powerade and Gatorade?  The both have some different things in them, but I know when I am aching and have now energy, it is likely because I have not kept enough liquids and electrolytes in my system. - Just a thought. - HUGS!
