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:

Me neither! I think I am going shopping tomorrow to try and find something that is dressy, but yet not too much. I think I am wearing heels, but being prepared as I usually am, I'm going to bring flats or something too! I hope its not freezing in Chicago that week!

That awesome that it went so well! My sister had her first child when her husband was in Iraq, so he missed it too. Its hard but when you seem them together, all will be good again :) And what Alex is doing is probably the best for you guys ( thats Brendon's excuse anyway) and everything will work out for the better!

I think its just because my boyfriend left on the same day, and they are in the same division and whatnot, and i felt like i was the only one who was in the situation, not having a baby while he is gone but just being without them. The part that gave me goosebumps is that you sound so strong and optimistic about it all! Having your baby without him is a huge deal, and you sound so hopeful! :)

Just read your About Me and it gave me goosebumps! I hope all is well and your little baby boy is so precious!
