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.

Hello all, my sailor is no longer on a carrier, he is now doing shore duty for his re-enlistment, therefore I will be leaving this group.  Thank you all for support and information.

Hi All got word that the USS Theodore may be making a Port shift in some years to come, Hello Washington!

NavyBrat thank You, he is doing very well, loves Coronado! No deployment until 2019. as he just returned in May.

Glad to hear he's doing fine, Phoenixmom.

They'll probably move families and their vehicles on board the carrier after returning to the original home port. They have to pick up everyone first including the staff stationed at the original port.

Jayne Hi didnt know what I was able to post but took a chance.  Happy for you! Navyhusband2018 I really dont know Navy is not saying when this will take place because of ship movement. I would think she would be able to find out info on all that since being there. Reach out to Anti M she is really good at all of that Anti M click on her name it will take you to her my page and leave her a message. Hope you get your answers answered.

My wife just received her orders to USS John C. Stennis. She will report on October 5th until may 1st 2019 when the ship will change port to Va. Do any of you know if they will move us with her to Washington for these months or we will need to way until the ship change port to Va? I believe the ship is already deployed

The home port shifts make me do a happy dance.  My son will at least be a little closer.
