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:

A little about me:

We have recently gotten engaged 8.29.10 <3 and I have never been so happy in my life. We have tons of friends that are supportive but nobody that really knows about the Navy so I am looking for some ladies to talk to and become friends with so I can get some help with what is going on and maybe help some others.

Yeah saying goodbye at the airport was extremely hard. We hugged each other really tight and didn't let go for a long time. My boyfriend will be in A school for 3 months. Then Power school for 6 months and then Prototype school for 6 months. So he'll be in SC for a long time. lol. I'm going to see him next month though. I can't wait!
Don't you just love the communication he has now???

My boyfriend left Saturday too. I spent the whole day being escorted around the airport by my sailor. =) It was awesome. He is now in South Carolina for Nuke school.

I couldn't go because we just got to Chicago! =(
How was it? And how are you? I'm so nervous right now! Kinda freaking out. Which is weird, because he is the love of my life and I haven't been nervous to see him since we first met.

That's awesome! I'm going to William Jewell College in Missouri to get my BSN. That's the plan righ now. But I might transfer after two years if my sailor proposes =) We want to get married ASAP. What about you?
Are you super excited for Friday?!? I know I am. I get butterflies everytime i think about it haha. I can't wait to see him! =)
