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.

**Admin wants to you to celebrate! Holy Guacamole- 2000 Members! ** :D

2000 Moms. Well, more like. 90% Moms… 5 % lovers (IE wives/fiancés/girlfriends) others… 4% Fathers, family, friends, supporters. 1% who the heck knows.

2000 have gathered.
2000 have found a purpose to be here.

I remember how excited I was when we hit 50 people. I came home and told my hubby… “We had 8 people join today!” Hehe… I can’t believe that was only 3 months ago. THREE! For those who have helped spread the word about our site, shared their story, and have been part of our community in some way, shape or form… I thank you.

Because of you we have: expanded categories,created swag, added an event calendar… etc. Because of you we have amazing information, support and love. We have a community. We have a home.

I’m in for the long run… Cheers! Until we hit another 1000!

Sincerely, Catherine

heheh- Joyce... we have been friends for awhile... and I am shocked I haven't told you yet... I am actually a master (okay... maybe not master) Guacamole maker- LOL. :D hehe my friends request me to make it when I am with them. I wish I could grow an avocado tree! It's really one of my favorite things to make... and when you come to visit for the cruise, I will make you a bigbatch (heck, I'll even make some margaritas!)

200 something. I feel fortunate to have found new friends here. My mom did not get to go to my brothers graduation in California. She rarely got a call, (always long lines at the phones) but my brothers and I got postcards from him occasionally from different ports, so she found comfort in that. I can just imagine her heartbreak. Look how good we have it! And new friends as a bonus!
