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.

We saw that your son will soon be stationed at Oceana NAS. My husband and I open our home on the weekends and invite sailors over to give them a place to hang out. We feed them :), and play board games, watch movies and do outdoor activities as well. We would be happy to invite you son over to join us! There is a sailor who comes over who is also stationed at Oceana. Check out our page on this site to find out more about us.

Hello, my son will soon be stationed at Oceania NAS. Does anyone else here have family members stationed at Oceania?

B'SNukeMom, I agree totally. Thank goodness everyone walked away okay. It was definitely a scary phone call and I knew it wasn't good at 1am  in the morning. We told him before this happened to stop driving at night. He said he liked traveling at night because of less traffic. But today he said, "Ma, I'm not driving at night anymore." :) Thank goodness he learned a few lessons out of this. Hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday. FYI, don't know If the mamas are here but I have some packages that were sent to my home from other sailors mamas. I'm delivering them this weekend. MANY BLESSINGS TO EVERYONE!

Hi all - Happy Monday!

Oh Tabitha - how scary!  Thank goodness he and the other driver weren't hurt.  I'm sorry to hear his car is totaled but at least that can be replaced.  Boy that is not a call you want to receive.  Again, I'm so thankful everyone is ok!
