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.

I know, I know.  I probably won't get a hit with this one but I'm afraid I have my hands into everything. Of course, many of my projects end up unfinished because I get interested in another thing…Continue

If my son can handle it, I should be able to do the same, right? It's his first time out from home but he seems to be taking it much better than me.  I can't wait to start receiving letters.  He was…Continue
