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. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass is no longer needed to drive on to base for parking.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Hi proudmom. I asked my daughter and she said you can order from the Facebook page, or you can call. 

Also I read your post and wanted you to know that my son leaves on April 10th and is cool cucumber too, and Im a crying mess, nervous and not looking forward to his leave date.  It is totally not fair how a mothers emotions can conflict so dramatically. But Im still proud of my SR. :-)
