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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

**UPDATE 7/29/2021** You now must be fully vaccinated in order to attend PIR:

This is the Navy group that is on the ground and what they are asking for.
They are requesting soap, mouthwash, toothpaste, baby wipes, fitness/bodybuilding magazines and books, board games. Action/combat movies, XBox Games, PS3 Games, Deoderant.
Vitamins and Protein Bars.
Shaving Creme
Razors, Towels and finally maybe some workout gloves.
AND our love and support. Nothing like a card from one of their Navy Family Members! :-)

Can someone help me out please. I have been away from Navy4Moms for a little bit. What do we need to bring to Einstein's? Hi Shirley, don't know if you remember me from Meet & Greet at Flanagan's for 5/1/09 PIR. I believe you sat right around the side of us. Well, I am finally coming. Ran into a woman (I believe her name was Diane) at the Bunker on 4th of July and we were talking and she told me about all the things you guys get involved in. I currently provide my son and his buddies with care packages (they ALL call me "MOM" now - LOL) They request mostly goodies. But can someone give me some ideas as to what these girls and boys (sorry ladies and gentlemen) need. My husband's facility is seeking to help set up care packages to send too and if I knew ahead of time I could bring what they may get but we need to know what they need. Thanks and I look forward to meeting you all on the 25th.
