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 ARE the United States of America!

We ARE the Unied States of America.  The American way of life is individualistic, dynamic, pragmatic.  It affirms the supreme value and dignity of our great nation.  We are a strong, powerful nation with zero tollerance for such acts as September 11th.  We rested none since that grim day and will continue to protect this great country for eternity.  It was our duty, our mission, our American way to protect our nation, and we did just that.  This is a time to reflect on all our… Continue

Our son...

Our son left January 4th for boot camp.  Letting go was the hardest thing I ever had to do.  The endless emotions that I swore I'd never manage to survive.  He had gone through so much that I thought I understood, but I know now that I will never fully.  He pushed through like a true man.  He complained none, did what he had to do.  I spent so many nights crying missing him.  So many days putting on that strong face, but was simply dieing inside.  I stalked the mailman and wore my cell phone as… Continue

Breathtaking Ceremony...

We just got back from our son's PIR graduation on Friday.  It was simply amazing and took my breath away!  They were all so focused and did an amazing job.  It was all I could do not to jump from my seat to go get my son. As soon as we heard, "Liberty Call" we rushed to him and I hugged him so hard and of course cried with pride!  Unfortunately, he was SO sick.  He had a migrane, Pink eye, and a temp of 104!  He pushed through, but he was shivering uncontrollably. Fortunatley, I take migrane… Continue
