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.

This is a group for Christian moms to make new friends, pray for one another, and share about our lives and faith. We are non-denominational, and our only request is that you are a follower of Christ and believe that the Bible is the Word of God.

Some of our sailors are currently serving; some of us have sailors who are now veterans.  Some of our sailors were born to us; some of us have sailors whom we have chosen to love and help raise. Whatever your situation, you are welcome here.

Prayers for the families of our military lost in that helicopter crash~~

Comment by Chipmunk on Saturday

LindaGirl - BNH and continued prayers for these additional families and your community.

Comment by LindaGirl on Saturday

Chipmunk, just found out that at least 3 members of the Air National Guard Unit near our home where the Unit is stationed were among the casualties.  One was from the High School I graduated from.  Never would I have thought this would have happened so close to home, but our community will come together and be there for the families.  Even though, my family didn’t know any of the Service Members personally, it still is very emotional for me and hard to come to grips with. 

Comment by Chipmunk on Saturday

Oh Wow! I am so sorry LindaGirl. Thank you for sharing this pain that has affected your family and friends of your husbands. Hearing the stories, helps us realize that each of these loses hits close to home for someone and they all are in our prayers.

Comment by LindaGirl on Friday

Chipmunk, as it turns out, one of the military members that was killed in the helicopter crash (who was a Reservest in the National Guard) was from one of our neighboring towns and was a member of the FDNY, from which my husband retired from.  For us it does hit close to home in more ways then one, as even though my husband didn’t know him personally, he knows fellow firefighters who did know him and are just in shock that one of their “brothers” lost his life over there. Such sad news.  He leaves behind 2 young daughters & had just celebrated his birthday the day before the crash. 

Comment by Chipmunk on Friday

LindaGirl - Thank you. I was finally able to reach one of my nieces, since my sister was working and verified that my nephew was the opposite direction of the world from the crash. Although, that is the same kind of helicopter and mission that he is part of, so it did hit close to home.

Comment by LindaGirl on Friday

Chipmunk, when you know the person who is serving over there, you can’t help but feel anxious and afraid that there is that possibility, however remote, that it could be one of your loved ones affected by the tragedy.  You and your sister are in my prayers that your nephew is safe and you will hear confirmation of that soon. 

Comment by Chipmunk on Friday

I just got on and read the article about the helicopter. This hits way too close to home - I am not able to get in touch with my sister to check on her son and not knowing what information she has seen or heard, I don't want to leave msgs or texts on her cell phone, so I just left a voice msg on their home phone. Did think it would affect me so, but I could hardly finish the message. Tears and prayers for these family members as well as our Navy family members who lost their loved ones.

Comment by Chipmunk on Friday

LindaGirl - thank you for sharing!!. I often receive my 1st news about these things here on N4M - do you have a news link? I will have to search. I have nephews in both the AirForce and Army - I am not sure where they are at currently, but I must check.
