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."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Check out this book to help the little ones follow along with what Daddy is doing during bootcamp:

Thank you! I’ve seen this before but wasn’t sure what age range it really was for. Have you read it yourself? Is it a good book for toddlers?
NukeWife, My son leaves this Tuesday the 28 from NJ. Our family is feeling sad already. I hope your child will be okay. I will be thinking of you this week.

AddieG, I left info for you on your My Page.

My son just shipped from Tulsa

Sapphire, I left info for you on your My Page.

Would love to stay in touch with you guys!
I got my call 2 hours ago. The sweetest voice for 5 seconds. I hope u get your call soon
I got my phone call around 11 PM (10pm) in Chicago. It was literally just as long as yours! I didn’t even get a chance to talk! We miss him so much and now it really begins though. No talking at all till letters is going to be so hard!
It was crazy how short it was. I ran the phone to my husband who was sleeping before night work and scared him when I busted through the door! I am going to write some letters now so they are ready to be sent. Not talking to him is what gets me also. ☹️
My son left today from Las Vegas and we just received his "I have arrived " phone call. Now his processing begins.

Josephine, I left info for you on your My Page.
