Anchors Away - my SR is off to boot camp! I miss him already!
Now we are in week 5 of 8! I can not believe the changes I've seen already in just his handwritting. Most of the ugly yelling has stopped now and it is more motivational now. :)

Click on OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) and the Page will open in a new window. Read the Page and follow the directions at the bottom to make change 3 (see the words in bold) so that this page is no longer visible to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web. Don’t forget to click the “Save” button at the bottom.
There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.
Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP Code to one that is not easily associated with you or your Sailor.
Since you have a Sailor, you can change "Waiting to leave for Boot Camp" above to “Enlisted.” You can make that change on the same page when you change the ZIP Code.
We are in week 5 of 8 now! Much progress has been made and we are looking at PIR arrangements! I can not believe the changes I've seen in him just from his handwritting! Who knew they would love letters so much :)
