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.

4GensOfSailors, YES, our baby girls are well our Babies!  Being girls and our babies we're just closer, not that I'm not close to my other children...but it's different!  But I have been told it's harder when it's your sons because they don't' tend to communicate like our girls  I get it my nephews and SIL don't communicate but sends messages or when they come home tell me How important those cards, letters and boxes were to them.  But this is our Babies we're talking about!  LOL  HUGS my friend, we're here for you.

I so understand your thoughts on watching your girl go off to bootcamp.  Our son joined the Navy in 2003 and we knew that was what he wanted to do.  My husband and I are both Navy vets so we fully understood that call and what was ahead for him.  Then in 2007 our daughter started talking about joining after high school.  She left July 2008!!  I was surprised how much more difficult it was on me watching her go.  I kept thinking about how my mom felt when I left but unfortunately she passed away just 2 months before my daughter left.  I think that made it harder for me!!  But it was all good, she's out now and is proud to be a Navy Vet.  Son is still in and another daughter is serving as well!!!  Don't hesitate to ask any questions or address any concerns you may have!  I look forward to sharing this awesome journey with you!!

Hi everyone! Its been a while since I have been on the website but it is getting close to that time again for me. Last year my oldest son graduated BC in April and next month, my daughter ships out to BC! I think this one is even harder than the first because she is my little girl all grown up!

Happy for ya JayDee!  I got to see my Eldest daughter Saturday night, we drove half way to meet them.  Had a great supper, and set around talking, when they closed we went to Wal-Mart and walked around talking LOL  Late night but worth it.  Got to face time Sailor, daughter and Grandbaby on Sunday. Happy mama here.  Got to talk to both boys....

Congrats Oleander!!!!  You're gonna LOVE being Grandparents. :)  Thanks you they are so darn cute!  Can't get enuff of them.  Heading to VA in June!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. Sounds like you did JayDee! 

Also, I['m so sorry to hear about your niece. Definitely sending prayers, please keep us posted.

Those babies are darling Blondie!

Big news here - we're going to be grandparents! Our oldest (not sailor) is due in Oct. We just got back from visiting them in NJ, mother and baby doing great. I even got to go with her to the Dr and heard his heartbeat : )

Happy Mother's Day ladies! I got a wonderful surprise yesterday when my oldest daughter came home for a surprise visit! I got an email from my sailor who is underway and a text from my SIL! Hope everyone has a great day!

Happy Mother's Day all.  I hope you get a phone call, text, e-mail or gift/flowers/letter sent.  If not Know they ARE thinking of you.  HUGS

Our sailor is EO, seabee. There are only 3 females at A school, about 70 guys. She said it is hard sometimes to keep up with their long strides, but they have to keep up with her for PFAs!

Comment by JayDee659 on May 10, 2018 at 10:34am

Blondie those babies are adorable!  I wouldn't be able to get enough of them either!

You're saying that your sister hit the trifecta for derby?  Wow, I need to call her when I go to the track. Didn't see what it paid but the exotics are the way to make $!

My niece needs all the prayers she can get.  Her pain level is very high and due to the medications needed she cannot go home and have her pain managed.  Her dad is a bit of a pain and wants to go home so he's told her to lie about her pain level.  That's bad on so many fronts.  He's also been rude to every doctor to the point where my niece has told him to stop that he's embarrassing her.  Her great grandma will be arriving on Sunday and will put things in order.  Nobody crosses this woman and she gets control quickly.  Thank God that she's coming soon.
