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."

Well it's been quite a while

Well it’s been quite a while since I posted on this site.  My older boy has been in 8 years and still packing chutes. My younger one has been in 7 years has 2 boys and is recruiting now and has tested for E6. Both have been on 2 deployments and I have been on 2 tiger cruises. My husband and I have flown all over the country for visits.  Not so much lately as my 3rd and oldest boy is in the army and based in HI. His kids are living with us for now.   I am just as proud now as the day they all…

Looking forward to seeing my youngest son in a few weeks when the ship docks in Pearl Harbor.  He's been on deployment on the CV for the past few months.  We get to spend a few days enjoying the island then a few more days together on the cruise back to San Diego.  4 days after returning home my middle son will be home on leave from Florida for 2 weeks.  So excited!!!!

Tiger Cruise

Posted on March 22, 2012 at 12:39pm 1 Comment

Absolutely cannot wait!!!  Going on Tiger Cruise on the Carl Vinson.  So excited to finally see my youngest son after he's been on deployment for what seems like forever and to cruise on this massive ship!  Looking forward to flying to Honolulu as Iv'e never been there before.  Husband to meet us in San Diego.

Just got back from Jacksonville, Fl after visiting with my middle son who is stationed there.  Able to stay right on base for the 2nd time in the Navy lodge.  Hope to go back…


Missing my boys

Oldest boy is still in Jackxonville,Fl the the youngest is on deployment on the Carl Vinson. Hoping to go to San Diego to see the ship come in. In the meantime we communicate through email and an occasional phonecall. I talk to my oldest almost daily. I'm hoping to fly to Florida in march. Its hard to think of my youngest being thousands of miles from home on his birthday and only 19 years old and watching radar screens! Wow. After 3 years I would've thought this would get easier, not!
