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."

The box

Posted on November 13, 2012 at 2:59pm 10 Comments

I got my "Kid in a box" last night 11-12 I was not home when it came as we were at the hospital visiting my Grams in the ICU. Weired thing was I didn't cry or get sad I found comfort as he was part of the day (the best part). Justin has always been the one to keep me grounded, and last night I was shown that will never change. Now just waiting on the form letter so we can write him and the best part his PIR date!
