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:

Just wanted to stop by and see how things were going. Realized I haven't seen you around much in the past couple days. Hope everything is okay and you're hanging in there. :)

Hi Binker - thanks for the welcome!  Yes I am finding that the nuke world is very interesting.  Looking forward to what the next few years brings for our son :)

Thanks so much for the offer for a place to stay. We are leaving very early Thursday morning, probably around 1am and driving straight up. My daughter is a grad and go and we will be driving back home on Saturday as soon as her flight leaves, Now I am wishing we were staying another night even tho she will be gone.

Lol, I wasn't trying to be specific, just general and mapquest lol. I guess I better look at the map again. Yeah I really should start a business for my ribbons. The bad thing is at $5.00 each I am not making a profit. But I enjoy doing it and it keeps me busy while I am looking for a job. And I have a bunch of supplies so I would like to make enough ribbons to pay me back what I have spent. But it's all good, lol. They made me remove my blog about the ribbons so if anyone is looking for me send them to my page. And I can definitely make some for you. Are you going to Meet and Greet? Send me a private message and we can work out the details. Thanks again, and welcome to the Oreo Queens Group. :)
