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.

All the emotions

My recruit left 12/18 and I have had mixed emotions since the departure. I’m so proud and I know logically my recruit has everything they need. I’m just missing my recruit so much. We are extremely close and it’s the patiently waiting for letters…Continue

I am new to all of this.  This little bit of time that we have left together is like a whirl wind.  She is the first in our family to be in the military so I have no clue as to what to expect.  Any information would be greatly appreciated!Continue

Bbcregular I'm so sorry to hear this. Its so hard for these kids, they are sure they're in love but can't spend time together to find out for sure. I will certainly keep you all in my prayers.

Just want to check in. Closed on our house and we are officially houseless and living the full time RV life. Spending the winter in Florida. That is the Happy note.

The sad note is that I need to share somewhere safe that my sailor girl will be getting a divorce. Sailor SIL spent Christmas with daughter. Only the third time they have been physically together since they married December 2017. The visit did not end well and now I have been getting messages from both of them that they want a divorce. They did not know each other well when they married and both thought they could change the other. I prayed a lot that they would fall madly in love with God and then be able to be madly in love with each other. Now I pray that God heal the hurt that they both feel. I support my daughter in all she does but was never ok with this marriage. I wanted to support her anyway. Now we need to travel to SIL’s base in Augusta GA and get her personal items. Just need prayer.

Blondie I have a friend who lives near Chardon and she got 17".  The videos of her little dog in the snow were adorable.

We got about 2" at home but at there were about 6" when we left our ski resort.  We sat there all afternoon in pouring rain watching it slowly turn to an ice storm.  Then the winds picked up to 40mph and the snow started.  The trip home was not fun, but thank goodness I was riding with another patroller in his Subaru.  That thing kicked butt in the snow, my next car is a Subaru.

We ended up getting 13 inches of snow.  With wind gusts 35-40 mph.  Drifts anywhere from 2 1/2 feet - 4 ft. tall.  Not what I'd call a blizzard but they are calling it blizzard-like. LOL  Never really lost visibility tho.  Now we are -12 degrees with a wind chill of -25!  Now that's COLD. Churches closed yesterday some businesses today and schools were already off for Martin Luther King Day.  But of course we're at work today and hubby got 2 calls late last night. So life as usual.  Didn't get to go see daughter over weekend so trying to plan another weekend.  

Hope you all are Safe and Enjoying this weather.  Loving it here!

Comment by Anna yesterday

JayDee, Enjoy your season but be safe!!!  

Knee is doing ok.  Still a little stiff and still don't have full range of motion like my right knee.  Had my last Dr. appt - told him my knee tells me when it's going to rain and when it's getting cold.  He said "barometer built in, no extra charge!!!"  Sweet guy!!!

Comment by Blondie on Wednesday

I wish they'd just say close the office for the week but they say maybe tomorrow, don't cancel appointments until I tell you, so each morning I get the call....Then I worry when they do come back if they over do it, then get sick again.  Oh well, I just follow directions.  I'm losing hours anyway.  They don't want to pay me if no one's here making money, so I come in cancel appointments for that day, change the answering machine and pick up the mail.  Then go home.  Getting a lot done at home but a hassle driving on these roads for an hour or 2 of work.  It's a mess. 

Sounds like we're getting all snow and lots of it but just wait and see where the storm tracks. Stay SAFE my friend but Enjoy!

Comment by JayDee659 on Wednesday

Blondie, it sounds like you have your hands full.  My boss has been out sine Jan 4. First the flu now pneumonia.  

We are supposed to get a dusting tonight but the big storm is Saturday for us as well.  Down here we'll get more of an icy mix with some snow.  Sunday's high is supposed to be 20 with a low of 3.  My team is working the Saturday evening shift and I'll stay on to help with the midnight.  Planning on riding with our Patrol Director who has a big old truck.  The road between here and the slopes is windy and 2 lane.  Usually takes an hour for the 25 mile ride but I'm anticipating a longer night.

Hope everyone is doing well out there!

Comment by Blondie on Wednesday

That's Wonderful JayDee!   Hope you have a Great season and a Safe one.

Runnergirl, Great picture. Sounds like a busy time for you. stays safe and have Fun!

Anna, House shopping what fun.  Enjoy the Sunshine.  How's the knee???

We have a blanket of snow here, got freezing rain last night(lots of ice and cancelations today) and more snow this afternoon and tomorrow.  This weekend they are predicting a foot or more!  Been a CRAZY week here, Massage therapist and Boss Doctor sick Monday thru????  Other Doctor was sick by Monday noon!  Only ones working are me and the Nutritionist. A lot of calling and canceling and re-scheduling....I put on answering machine we were closed Tue. came in this morning to 34 messages!  What don't they understand about closed?!  I guess Doctor's aren't allowed to get sick. :(  Still don't know if I have a Doctor for the rest of the week, wait and see....they have no idea how hard this is on me and scheduling.  Was heading to Columbus to see Pregnant daughter this weekend for her birthday, with the weather, we'll have to wait and see on that too!  Life is just difficult here right now.  I just keep taking vitamins, defusing my oils and Smiling.
