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.

Event Description

ANYONE may attend...the Ramada does this for every PIR group as a courtesy, it is free. There will be many there that don’t know about N4M’s!

The hostess will make a name tag for you . Half way through the evening she will come in and offer anyone to come up and introduce themselves.

Those staying at the Ramada will get a voucher for two free drinks and they have a cash bar. They have five or six kinds of finger foods. They do not mind if you bring in a water or soft drink with you. The RSVP just helps them get a head count so they know how much food to prepare. But I am sure they make a bit extra!
