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.

Hi all - Happy Wednesday!

Lol kai cat!  They also got him some MSU sandals ;-D  He's all set now for school!

I passed on the info to him about Target.  And yes they do have experience with dogs....his GF is studying veterinary/animal care at MSU - they have a couple dogs and she volunteers at a wildlife place.  B has gone with a couple of times to help out.  He worked p/t at BJ's in VA - it's like a Costco or Sams Club - I think he mentioned he might look into Costco in MI.  And when school starts he's going to see about an on campus job.  He just needs something little to help out. Hopefully something will work out.

SubMom - right?!?  I can't be getting older!!!!!

Wow! I can't believe your son is 29!! He is SOOO old :)

I also can't believe I just checked in for the first time in a while because I have been so busy and the first thing I see is MSU stuff!  I just can't get away that green and white.

What kind of job is B looking for?  They are hiring at the Target by Meridian Mall starting at $15/hr.  Does he or his GF have experience with dogs?  There are lots of dog walking and boarding and house sitting jobs in East Lansing this summer too.  All the restaurants are hiring .. delivery driver tips for pizza and jimmy johns are good around here too.  He is so smart though - he is probably looking for some other kind of job.  Working as a Shipt shopper is really good money if you like grocery shopping too. And if he doesn't mind drunk college kid barf in his car, uber drivers make a lot around here.  Tell him not to text the "18.50 per appointment" signs that are all over the place around here - they want him to sell cutco knives to his friends and family.

I am might be able to come this Saturday, it just depends on the time and place.  Like around 4 pm works for me - and I would love to bring my husband and 15 yr old!

Hi all - Happy Tuesday.  I want to wish a Happy 29th Birthday to my son ;-D (Although I don't know how he can be 29 if I'm only 39 lol!)
