I see you have changed your Username so that it does not contain your last name (you probably did that some time ago); you also need to change the URL to this page to remove it from there. If you do, make change 2 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link) to take care of that. (If you are using a Smart phone, you will need to switch to Desktop View to make this change.)  

Also make change 3 while you are there so that this page is no longer open to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web.

It's not a good idea to post a pic of your Sailor every time you post, so also make change 4.

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 your Sailor.

Thanks for your quick reply. I wanted to know what is the address for July? Where can I find it? My daughter is leaving for boot camp on Wednesday. Does the address stay the same each month? Thanks again and have a good night.
