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.

Molly's Mom you never know. I heard from my sailor much more than I ever expected  

Comment by Molly's Proud Mom on May 11, 2019 at 6:56pm
LOL JayDee I guess you are set! But please don’t do laundry tomorrow. Yes Molly is in BC. The last call we got, my younger daughter, husband and I were all there and got to talk to her. Today she called me then her sister then her dad. She said she doesn’t think she’ll get to call again until the I’m a sailor call.

Molly's Mom, your daughter is in BC, correct? My daughter usually made two calls. One to us, one to her BF. One time I missed a call so she called the BF first then called me back. Happy Mother's day to all of you incredible ladies.  I'm alone this weekend, but there will be puppy kisses for me. There's an Amazon package on the table and my new washer and dryer just arrived so I guess I'm set.

Karilyn you might be number 2 after a wife but this weekend you’re number 1! Hope she calls you first!
Ladies, for the phone calls, they’re allowed to make more than one? Are they given a time limit for calls?
Comment by Oleander on May 11, 2019 at 12:50am

Perfect for me too! Let's make it happen!

Oh ladies - I am in that puzzle!!!!  Only we won't get over to the western states until early 2020.  We're catching all the eastern states we haven't been to yet so we can get all 50!!!!!  Then we'll winter in Florida or someplace south until the weather clears up in the midwest!!!  Definitely going to Fallon to see Chris and a stop in Vegas will certainly be in the schedule!!!  I hope that's not going to be too late for the rest of you but I would LOVE to have this NavyMom get together!!!!

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MMN on May 10, 2019 at 9:48pm

Haha JayDee! And I went home and showed the same picture to  my hubby and told him it was you and Oleander! (You gotta love Vegas!)

Comment by Karilyn1962 on May 10, 2019 at 9:38pm

Glad to hear she has taken on some leadership! That’s great! Caran is a Port Watch. Not sure what all that entails. I’m looking forward to hopefully getting a call tomorrow. Since I’m number 2 in her life (she’s married), I know she’ll call me after she talks to her wife. 

Comment by Molly's Proud Mom on May 10, 2019 at 9:35pm
Got a letter from Molly today.. she got promoted to doing “the senior chief’s board PO as well as the Ship’s Officer (LT) and Ship’s LCPO’s boards” for the division. Not sure what all that means but I think she’s maintaining the calendars for some higher ups.

She also was made an EPO (educational petty officer) to help people study, which she said is nice but takes even more away from sleep time. LOL so happy to hear how strong she seems.
