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:

Wow it's crazy that you're originally from NYS! I'm originally from Geneseo, so we're both from SUNY towns which is cool. 

Sorry I have been so bad about responding to your wall posts. I log into this site tons but I can't remember to check my wall for some reason.

I'm going to send you a message so I can talk more detailed without worrying about all of my info being on the internet ok?

Happy Holidays to you, too!! Hope those kids are keeping you busy. :)

I know my niece and nephew are keeping me up and running. 

My niece has claimed Aaron as her boyfriend. Anytime he walks in the door she yells, "My boyfriends here! My boyfriends here!" Awesome. I have major competition with a two year old!

I hate getting sick. Ugh. Yuk. Since we had our flu shots, at least we won't get that. BTW, has you mother in law joined the SF group yet? Or maybe she would rather just get the info from you.

My younger son attended the United States Military Academy, West Point (next to Highland Falls, NY) for two years but he is totally incompatible with the military. He is studying what he wants now and
would like to make tons on of money in the future. He like intelligent
women who look like Jessica Alba or Reese Witherspoon or the girl in
Smallville (what an idiot! but he is young). He plays the guitar and
sax. A wonderful golfer. Excellent chess player. He has even learned to
cook a few dishes (really into eating healthy and running). Unlike his
mother, he eats and stays skinny - just under 5'11" and 150 lbs (but has
to keep his calorie intact up to stay at that). Tell your friend to
never mind him because the marriage arrangement comes with a great MIL
who will treat her like a princess :)  Going back to bed. Night night.

My sailor is home! But spending time with his girlfriend which is OK. Hope he pops the big question. :) Younger son (home from college) gave me his cold. He is 22 studying petroleum engineering at the University of Oklahoma. Don't hesitate to introduce to any hot women you may know in OK. How are you holding up?

Crap, maybe tomorrow. If not, then for sure on Monday... maybe!!! I see you have a husband, correct? I'll get the hand of this sooner than later, hopefully!
