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.

Daughter-in-law in Japan pregnant and son on deployment

Looking for advice for my daughter-in-law.   She is about 6 weeks pregnant and has polycystic ovary syndrome .  She is spotting and may have a miscarriage.  She is all alone there.  They just arrived in September.  My son left on deployment and will be back early December.  She is so stressed and I want to help her but feel helpless.   She is an optometrist from the Phillipines and made friends with a Phillipino spouse; but doesn't want to bother them all the time because they both work and have 2 children.  Any suggestions?

Hi Sheryl - I'm sorry I don't have an answer for you.  Has she got a doctor there in Japan on the base that she is seeing?  I'm sure it's very scary for her being there alone - hopefully she will reach out to the friend/spouse that she has met.  I'm sure the friend would be willing to provide some emotional support (even if she is busy I would hope she could make some time for her.)  Sending prayers....

Has her husband let the ombudsman for his ship know?  The family readiness group (FRG)  might be able to provide some support.  Fleet and Family Services also has volunteers and counselors who might know about resources she could use.
