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:

Hi Trudie,

Glad Ian was able to come home!

Zac was hoping that his boat would get him home before Christmas and while his grandmother was still alive.  Unfortunately, she died a couple hours after the boat docked in San Diego.  There was no funeral, so Zac celebrated the holidays in California with my Aunt, Uncle, and cousins.  We're hoping to travel out there this year, but not sure when the boat will be deployed again?

Hawaii and Italy; that sounds fun!!

We have less than an inch of snow here!  Worst winter in 40 years for skiing :(

Sounds great! Woodland Park is a lot closer to Denver and there is less traffic LoL. I think it would be wonderful to get a Packing party organized. It would also be fun to get together for coffee.

Hi Trudie,

My son was home too.  It was so nice!

He helped me with my computer problems :)

I will miss him so much, but am glad he is happy and loves his job also!

My uncle lives in San Diego so I should be able to visit some time.  I have never been there but it sounds beautiful!

Ian will like Hawaii!  My daughter works there occasionally and says it's gorgeous!

We are dealing with Hospice with my mother-in-law and cancer so I know what you're going through.  So sorry. 

Hope you get to go to Hawaii soon.

Beth :)

Hi Trudie
I'm not able to retrieve my mail from Navy4moms. 
I no longer have Internet except for my iPhone & the app is not working well. 
Sounds like the boys are in the same group & doing well!
Hope they stay safe during the storm!
Beth :)

You're in Tammie's Division!

She is so nice, we talk almost everyday.  She even wrote my son a letter and we've never met her!

What is your son's rate?  My son Zac, is MM.

Are you coming to PIR?

Beth :)
