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."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Playing Speak Out!

Madison got the game Speak Out for us and then went on deployment. So when she got back we finally got together and played the game. What laughter and fun it was! Trying to talk and say the phrases on the cards with the mouthpieces in our mouths was a…

Thanksgiving Day 2014

Great Thanksgiving Day!

We had five sailors at the table, and what a awesome bunch of guys! Cristian (USS Kearsarge), Mark, Jonathan (USS Eisenhower), Austin (USS Eisenhower), Jedd (USS Truman).

Austin made "Angeled" Eggs for us (Yum!). Jonathan and Cristian made guacamole and salsa for appetizers. Yup! Yvonne made everything else...except the gravy. That's always my job! 

Before we ate we started watching the Detroit-Chicago game. Than Yvonne called us to the table and…

Life after boot camp

We know that it is hard for all you navy moms whose sons and daughters are headed to or already in Boot Camp!  And of course after they have graduated, they will be transferring to a school's command somewhere else in the country.  The most important thing you can do for them, besides staying in communication with them, is to pray for them.  It's not always easy for them to be far from home either.  That's where we come in.  If any of your sons or daughters transfer to Virginia…

My Publisher Photo Book

I just created a photo book in mypublisher.com that turned out fantastic! The printed book is just like a professional coffee table book you buy in a store. I've been looking for way to show my pictures and this is phenomenal! I love it! The price is also great! With a base price of $29.80 you get 20 pages and the cover. You can create stories in each book.

Hello!

Wow! I can't believe it's been so long since I've been on here. I really haven't fallen off the planet. Just have had a lot going on in our church and in our military minsitry. "Busy" doesn't even begin to cover it! I'm going to have to schedule time to get back on here. Hope no one has like, totally forgotten us. :)

Saturday May 1, 2010

Yvonne and John and Cody ate hamburgers and fries at the house and were starting a game of dominoes, then decided to go to the Virginia International Tattoo at the Scope in Norfolk instead. The beautiful colors, pagentry, and music from international military bands were awesome! I am soooo glad we went! I think this is going to be an annual event for us.

Sunday April 25, 2010

Had a housefull this afternoon! Savannah, Brandon, and Malachai (NAS Oceana), Cody (USS Fort McHenry), Kim, Aiden, and Barbara (NAVSTA Norfolk), and Sarah and Jacob! We ate Italian Crepes and a spinach and artichoke vegetable, and then vanilla biscotti and coffee for dessert. Yum! Then we watched the first eight chapters in the Matthew video and prayed together. What a great day! Check out the pictures I added.

Civil War Reenactment Photos

Here are some of the photos from the Civil War Reenactment we went to in Yorktown, VA. It was really cold that day, but we all had a good time anyway! After spending the day watching the war and interacting with the soldiers on both sides, we went to Andrea's Italian Restaurant (best pizza in Hampton Roads) for pizza, then to (believe it or not) Coldstone Creamery for ice cream.

Haiti Relief Effort

It's exciting to know that three of the sailors who come to the house are involved with the Navy's mission to provide needed relief to the country.



One of them said: "We are in Hati, and many of us have been to the beach doing Humanitarian relief work. I got to go to...and did medical relief work for 3 days. It was the most exhausting, fulfilling and blessed situation I think that I have ever been in. The Haitian people are wonderful, and very thankful of all the care that we can… Continue
