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."

Event Description

The Meet and Greet for PIR 10/7/2011 TG 47 (Divisions 329-340 & 947) will be from 6:00 to 8:00 pm on Thursday, October 6, 2011 at the Ramada Inn Waukegan.


This free event will give you a chance to meet and greet others with loved ones who will have PIR on 10/07/2011. It will be a great way to start the weekend. You do not have to be staying at the Ramada Inn to attend. You will meet those who you have been sharing this journey with you within the 10/07/2011 PIR group on N4M and you will also meet others who have not heard of N4M  - so they might be a bit more confused than all of us.

We are south of Chicago and I work Thursday.  I am going to try my best to make it up there before 8.  So 4 of us will be there if we dont hit a lot of traffic.  I would love to talk to everyone else that is going through this.
Comment by Aaron's mom on September 27, 2011 at 9:04pm
I think we will be able to make it. Yay! There will be three of us. I can't wait to put faces with names! We are almost there. Woo hoo!!!
