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.

most people don't see it, bracelet, watch or sleeve covers it. But when I'm having a stressful moment I just turn my wrist and breathe!  It makes me Smile, remembering that  girls weekend and the Love we SHARE every day.

Image result for i'll love you forever children's bookMine's the hearts. They wanted me to finish the quote!  As long as I'm living my baby you'll be.  It was too much for my wrist and they didn't want mine to be up the forearm and not like theirs. we decided I could get 2 blue ones for my boys and then start my grandkids on the other wrist. my hubby didn't like the idea and after further thinking, I was afraid of offending my adopted and foster kids!

Congrats Beachmomblue!  Celebrating with you, doing the Happy Dance of Joy.  When my sailor came back to the states after 5 years over seas, my Eldest daughter turned 25 that year so I took her to DC (sailor was at the Pentagon) to celebrate and we got Tattoos.  So, don't count it out ANY thing is possible. HUGS  So EXCITED for you.

T-Lynn, Glad you got to talk to sailor, Sorry to hear about the ship tho.  Shark spoiled?  I'm Shocked!  lol

HI All.

Talk about Rain - well in a few minutes I should be in a thunderstorm again. Maybe - just maybe this time the humidity will drop.  106!  Hey - Navymom2 try to stay cool!!!

Blondie - so glad to hear you will be off again on a trip with family- The Zoo too!!! Have fun. Hope you are will be feeling better soon. hugs

Maggs - sorry to har that you are having a confusing time. But I am betting your teaching skills will kick in soon and you will have sorted through and get things into place. soon. Gentle hugs.Have you taken any new picture of nature? Nature just loves coming to you. Angel doing better?

Oh Blondie - Shark is doing fine now. No more getting her toe nail caught in the rug fibers. So she is just scooting along now. She just doesn't like for someone to hold her foot - with out rubbing it. Spoiled you know.

Sailor called and chatting for over two hours. His ship took some damaged from the last typhoon that passed through. The shipped was docked during teh storm and took some had hits from teh winds and waves.  He stated they found water in h engines and some fractures in teh hull. So they are busy working on getting that ship back on track.

Now that doesn't sound right - for a ship to back on track ?  Maybe -back on its wave?  No no good either. OH - you all know I mean. Keep you posted.

Need to get - storm is here.  hugs

Comment by Blondie on Thursday
