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."

Events

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.

Lisa ... my pleasure!  ;o)  2-1/2 weeks to go for my daughter's PIR... and I am sooooo anxious and excited!  It looks like the SRs in her division will be training this week (week 6) in fire fighting, shipboard damage control and will be "checking out" the inside of a gas chamber being exposed to tear gas while they attempt to recite their name and social security number!  Look at all you daughter has to look forward to?!! LOL!  Has your daughter contracted for a specific job yet?
