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."

So my daughter was home for the weekend, it was so awsome, and then she leaves... I hate when she leaves and I so love when she is home.  She is only 6hrs away so it is not so bad of a drive, so I guess I shouldn't complain, I just miss her so much.  When will I ever get used to her not being here.  I want her to come home but hate when she leaves....

Hello everyone....


Does anyone have the website or address for the military pay.  I checked my daughters checking account today and she only received 1/2 of her pay.  I had the website, log-in & password written down but for the life of me I can not find it anywhere.  Thanks for your help ladies...

So went to visit my daughter this weekend in Virginia (that is were she is stationed) and was a little bummed..  She was so excited when she was in bootcamp & A school, no she is just blah.  She went into bootcamp as undesignated, because she couldn't wait to go in, now she is seeing that she should of waited for her field to come up. She really wants EOD.  She is complaining of being exhausted from doing nothing…


So Excited!!!!!

Well I got the 2nd phone call today, she is doing great, she is loving every minute of bootcamp.

But…

Hi Danielle's Mom.
My name is Sue, and I am Ausitn's Mom. Austin has been on a roller Coaster recently, as he was to have been shippod out on 6/3. Recruiters dropped the ball with his security clearance, and he found out at MEPS, while his buddies were swearing in, that he would have to wait till Monday. He did the whole thing agaoin Sunday night, staying at the Hotel, to MEPS in the morning. WE waited and waited, then were told, "OOPS" paperwork still has notcleared.
Talk about emotional ups and downs. Por kid ! At 19, he has been focused on becoming a SEAL
