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."

Martha, got a response on bootcamp. Diannep says its just a formality, leaving me to believe it doesn't mean mush more than that. Doesn't matter if I use it or not, she'll get her mail - good thing, i didn't use it. me being paranoid i guess.

Martha, posting all over, don't see an answer. My last letter from Tam had Ship 11 USS Kearsarge DIV 217. Have you seen this from anything Lizzie sent. Tam Just "forgets" to tell me stuff sometimes. Thanks,

Thanks for getting back to me. Do you know anything about the MnG? Like time and place or if our kids will be attending? I wish my daughter would join. She is stacking up debt going to college. Today she is testing for CA State Certification for teaching. I am keeping my fingers crossed and saying a few prayers that jobs will open up by the time she graduates with her Masters. I think the Navy is the way to go. She would have her school paid for and have a career at the same time if she would join. The girl in my photos is my daughter, Kaitlyn. She played basketball until 9th grade....that's when she stopped growing! She is only 5'4". She then went on to cheer. My son is 6'2" and I'm 5'9". Basketball was always big at our house. Volleyball not as much but my son played on season of it. I miss that kid so much but I know this is going to be good for him. Our town was getting way too small for him. We live about 45mins out of downtown LA and 7 miles inland of Malibu. Pretty quite here for teens. Malibu is boring and LA's 45 mins can turn into 4 hours in a snap! I used to spend my summers at Lake Texhoma. Have you heard of that? My best friend lived on the panhandle of Oklahoma. Sure had a lot of fun on that lake. Loved the Dallas area. How far are you from there?

Hi Martha, I love the pics! Lizzie is a beautiful girl. She looks so happy. Did her recruiter tell you that you were allowed to go to the swearing in ceremony? My son's recruiter did not tell me but I asked if I could see him before he left and that is when he told me I could go. I was the only parent there at MEPPS in Los Angeles. I don't think the recruiters out here inform parents of being able to be present during this time. It's a shame. Looks like you were able to take some nice pics. LA MEPPS was strict on where I could stand and take pics so I didn't get any good ones of Dan swearing in. I was glad I went and so was he. I felt bad for the other kids cuz they said they didn't know their parents could be there. I'm sure Lizzie and Dan have met by now. What is her job after BC? Dan is in AO. He wants to change it to AE. He wanted in fast so he took the first job offered. He was ready to start his life and since my dad was in the Navy that is what he joined. What about Lizzie? Why did she go into the military? She looks tall in your pics. Was she a cheerleader? I still have not received a "real" letter from Dan. How about you...any news from your daughter? I really hope they get to call us tomorrow for Mother's Day.
