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."

Hi Gin,

Sorry to hear about Tylar's friend, and other boys being bullies.  They won't get very far in life.  Your son has a great future in front of him!  So glad he passed everything too!!  I will ask Zac to watch over him.  He knows what it's like to be picked on....He has an older sister!  Ha! Ha!

I don't know how to save the picture, or view it enlarged like Kim said???

Yes, Ginger.  You did it right!

Nicole, AZHorsemom, kept having the same problem and I teased her about it all the time!  We Just found out that her son Mike and Zac are good friends :)

What is your son's name, maybe Zac can help him.  Zac went away to college for 2 years & lived with friends for another year, so it's not too bad for him.

The only Sub mom I can find is a Colorado mom and she has not written back :( 

Thanks for offering to take Zac's bag!

Glad your brother is going with you!!

Beth :)
