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.

JayDee659.  Sorry you have the bug! Yuk! 

If you ever have questions about dogs and cats I can definitely help.  Don't ask me about others animals, but I am pretty well versed about dogs and cats.  Seems to me your Nuke's dog needs a dental cleaning.  I will be happy to give you some advice on direction with that.  Don't know anything about nuclear power, but I know a lot about veterinary medicine!!

JayDee - sorry to hear you got the flu - ugh, no fun!  I got my flu shot this year too (I usually do) so hoping I don't end up sick.  I hope you are better by Christmas ~ my sister in law has been out of work over a week with it.....Ah, I'm glad to hear your granddog is ok.  And how fun that you can see pictures on FB!

Comment by JayDee659 14 hours ago

Thanks for the well wishes.  I do feel better than I did yesterday.

Just got a call from the kennel where my Nuke has her dog while she's out at sea.  Poor dog had a tooth come loose and it was pointing in.  I approved the vet care then they called me to say the tooth fell out in the vets waiting room and my granddog was acting happy again.  The up side is that they said they put pictures on their FB page and will add me as a friend so I can see my grand dog!

JadaK18, I saw your question about going to A school with your son?  Do you mean flying from Chicago to Charleston with him?  I'm not sure if it's changed, but my husband was on the same flight as our daughter out of Midway and she had to sit with her fellow sailors.  If I misunderstood your question, please let me know, I'm a little thick today.

Ladies, I got an early Christmas gift of the Type A Flu.  Despite the flu shot.  Apparently I'm the first case that my doctors office has seen this year.  Doctor had diagnosed me with bronchitis and at the last minute decided to do the flu test and viola!  Unfortunately my end of year vacation from work is supposed to start next Wednesday, not sure how this will play out with my boss, but I'm sure we'll work it out.
