Not Doing So Well

There's 17 days left. I find myself getting discouraged and impatient. I'm feeling depressed and I'm not sure if I'm just ready for him to be home or what. I feel like that day is never going to get here and it doesn't help on days like today when I miss his call and don't get to talk to him.....also, if anyone has any information on OPSEC stuff please fill me in because I got in trouble about it the other day and I had never heard of it.

You know it's completely normal to feel this way when you see him you'll it'll make a lot more sense and worth remember everything you've been feeling for however long is finally getting to a point you go to go crazy there's nothing you can do except run with it!!<br />

As for OSPEC you cant share dates, times, platoon numbers, places for the safety of family and marines ect it's confidential information that cant be shared. depending on the deployment and where he is they become more alert my fiance is deployed at the moment and OSPEC is all over it like rash in other just be careful what you share!

Thank y'all very much!!! That was so helpful lol

Here is a poem about opsec hope it helps. And GHG35 is correct very few people on here follow the rules but it is very important that we try to follow it to keep all of our Marines safe!<br />

OPSEC by Dr. Seuss!<br />

I am Sam. Sam I am. Do you like OPSEC and ham? I do not get it, Sam I am. I do not get OPSEC and ham. We must use it here and there. We must use it everywhere. You CAN share it in a car. But you CANNOT in a bar. You CANNOT share it in a text. You CANNOT share it at the NEX. You CAN say it in your house. But should NOT tell a random spouse. You CAN say it in the shower. But do NOT go sharing at happy hour. DON'T make the Ombudsman sweat. DON'T post it on the internet. You CANNOT share it in a tweet. That would not be very sweet. Beware of Facebook and Myspace too. It's tempting to let your feelings through. You Cannot tell it to a friend. NOT even at the very end. It is a privilege to know a date. DON'T tell ANYONE or they may be late! Oh, I get it, Sam I am. Now I get OPSEC and ham! I will not tell anyone. I will keep hushed until they're done! I will not tell him or her. I will not tell my dog with fur. I will not tell my child's teacher. I will not tell any creature. Thank you, THANK YOU, Sam I am. Thank you for clearing up OPSEC and Ham!!!

Just google it, and you can find out about it, I've noticed that not many follow it on here. Good luck! :)

I have faith that youll be able to hold out the last few days just fine
