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.

Anyone know how to obtain a physical address for Boorda Hall so that we can send a care package to our sailor?  They are allowed to get stuff, right? Any info would be helpful...

Oh, I still have a couple days before we fly out for the weekend.  This is a real treat and I get to see old friends!  I am very excited.

Anti M you have a Fabulous Time, and thank you for the reply I can see where it does make sense.

Good morning!  

I'm packing for a birthday trip, so while I am not worried for my next few tomorrows, I certainly am preparing for them!

Good Morning Ladies hope all is well, wishing you all a great week. I would like to share todays Daily Bread verse.

Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Anti M, I am trying to find the site where I can purchase more of the Division tee shirts from PIR. Do you happen to know what it is? Thank you in advance.
