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.

Left for Basic yesterday

Yesterday was a hard day for me and our family. We went to Ft. Jackson in Columbia and watched our " young man " swear into the Navy. It was the hardest thing I as a mother have ever done, to turn and walk away after I hugged, kissed him, and told him how proud I was of him and that I loved him. Then I got the last call last night around 10 pm, telling me he was in Chicago and fine and that he loved us. Tears streamed down my face as I held the phone after he hung up, knowing I could not…
