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."

Hi!! I wondered where you were!! And your new screen name threw me for a loop reading this through my email, lol, but as soon as I saw your picture of course I knew who you were!!

 

Are you over on our 2/1 PIR group here yet?

 

And are you on facebook? Because we have a group over there too. If you're on FB, message me your info, and I'll friend you & add you to the group (it's a closed group, so I think someone already there who is friends with you on FB, needs to add you & then you will be approved)

 

As for his box - is it possible that he just donated everything he had, or threw some things away? Or did he have things that you know for sure he was sending back, like a phone or something? Because that IS odd that you haven't gotten it yet - your son arrived a day before mine on the 5th, right? And you're only an hour away from GL - so you should have gotten the box right away!! We got Holden's box on Monday the 10th, after he arrived around 8pm on Thursday the 6th - with the weekend in the mix, I'm sure that was the only real reason it took even that long since we're only 2.5 hours away from GL.

That is strange. Did you get the address from the recruiter or your SR's letter? I guess our kids ship together but don't always train together?
