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 am new to this site and to being an official Navy mom.  My son commissioned as an Ensign on Monday and I am way too proud of him to not share with other moms who understand just why I am so proud and excited.  Here's to his next big adventure in life!  Thank you for letting me brag a bit.  I hope all of you and your loved ones, especially your sons and daughters who have so graciously volunteered to serve, have a joyous holiday season and a happy and prosperous New Year.

Thank you! My son was in the ROTC program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University so he is commissioned now and won't be going to OCS. However, we lived in the Boston area a long time ago when my ex-husband was stationed in New Bedford with the Coast Guard. My daughter was born in Falmouth, Cape Cod and is a chowdahead by rights. We live and breathe Red Sox baseball. Thank you so much for your kind offer of help. We will keep that in mind as I'm sure my son will be in the New England area at some point
