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.

So far the only damage I’ve heard of a GC  was a tree branch being down.

Missisu my son is at GC now they were evacuated to ft Jackson but returned to GC today. I heard there was flooding but not how bad.

Comment by SubMom on September 13, 2018 at 7:48pm

Misisu - Our son is stationed at GC - right now enjoying his “”hurrication” - where is you sailor?

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MMN on September 12, 2018 at 11:40am

I am very fortunate that since my son is out of the Navy now he is in no danger from the hurricane.  He's in MI but he was in Goose Creek (Charleston), SC and in Norfolk, VA - both areas that are expecting to have issues with hurricane Florence.  He has many friends still in VA and I know that they are operation sortie with the ships - getting them out to sea to keep them safe!

So how many of us have a sailor in the way of this Hurricane? 

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MMN on September 11, 2018 at 4:29pm

SubMom - we definitely plan on getting to MI - just haven't figure out the "when" yet.  You know I will let you know ;-D

Comment by SubMom on September 11, 2018 at 3:43pm

B’sNukeMom - I am so happy theyre doing so well. When you make it to Michigan for a visit let me know - I’d love to meet you. I’m  about 2 hours away :)

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MMN on September 7, 2018 at 6:12pm

SubMom - He's enjoying it but mostly because he is finally there with his GF (after spending the last 2 years apart)!  I love seeing them both happy ;-D  And besides school he got a PT job at the Costco there (in or near Lansing - in the tire bay)  so if anyone needs tires stop by and say hi to him and give him a hug for me lol!

Comment by SubMom on September 6, 2018 at 9:30pm

B’sNukeMoM - very nice picture. I hope he’s enjoying Lansing. I used to live on the East side of Lansing and loved it.I haven’t been in that area for 20+ years!

B&C started the new semester at MSU last week.  I even got the obligatory "first day of school" picture ;-D
