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.

Glad to see people joining the group!

Thank you for the prayers! Always welcomed. :)

Recovery is going well. It's only been a couple weeks since I had my knee replacement completely replaced (it failed after two years). Recovery the second time a little different than the first, and I expect way too much of myself sometimes. LOL

Thank you for your patience with my delay in getting the groups posted. Please ask any questions you may have. If we don't have the answer, things keep changing fast right now, we will get them. :)

My son is an ET2 (IW/SW), or PO2, and his wife is a MM2, or PO2 and is Reserve. Both were forward deployed in Japan for three years, and my son was stationed in Bahrain for a year after Japan. Both are now back in the states, and I am happy they are closer to me. :)

Be sure to ask any questions you may have, we love answering them. Don't worry if you think your question has probably been asked before, ask it anyway.

Again, welcome to the group!
