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.

Keisha B...our kiddos just moved into a 5 bedroom, five bath home in a great neighborhood in Chesapeake. We spent three weeks down there getting them settle and they absolutley love it!!

Keisha B,  Are they looking to buy or rent? Virginia Beach, parts of Norfolk and Chesapeake are good. They just have to check out those areas to find a good neighborhood.

Thank you so much. I did find a hotel. It’s very expensive there especially on holiday weekend. I’ll check your page out. He’s there going to C school and leaving for Japan in September

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday!

Johanna - that's great news on the house ~ I'll bet you're looking forward to the visit :-D  We visited VA 3 times while B was there and had a fantastic time every visit.  There's a nice aquarium there too.

Hurray...the kids bought a house!!  They must miss us and want us to visit, because they now have 5 bedrooms...:))) They will be in the Greenbrier arera of Chesapeak. Hoping for a move in time around beginning of June and we will visit for about two weeks to help with our Grandson and get them settled! They love the area and spend a lot of time at the Portland Children’s Museum.

Nice to hear that your sailor is at Dam Neck! My husband and i invite sailors over to our home on the weekends and would love to invite him over as well. If you go to our page on this site you can learn more about us. As far as a place to stay, I can check for you a motel close by the base.

Hi!  My sailor is in C school in Dam Neck for a while. I am going to visit soon and I am looking for recommendations on where to stay. Navy accommodations are not available. 

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MMN on May 8, 2018 at 6:10pm

Hi navvvy22 - I think you would need to ask your sailor that directly.  I don't believe there's anyone who would/could give you that info otherwise.
