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.

Happy New Year!!!

When will we get the graduation packets?  Soon I hope.  Has anyone received this yet?

he said they had their pics last week in the blues.  Can't wait to see those!

I can't wait to see my son's pictures.  I have a picture of my dad in his whites that was made in Great Lakes, IL a long time ago.  I am going to frame them side by side.

I haven't been on here in forever! Had my daughter come visit, so didn't get on the computer much! See you all in less than two weeks!

I hope you had a nice visit.  See you in less than two weeks!

BTW...We can officially print the gate passes today! Even if you aren't driving on base, a fun souvenir!

I never thought printing a gate pass would be so exciting!!

BwaaaHaHa...Me either!

I need the password from someone to print the parking pass.  I never received the form or P2 letter that had the password in it.  Please let me know what it is since it is the same for the whole division.  Thanks so much

need some help getting the gate pass.  My form letter never made it. Need the password.  I'm in a panic right about now.  Thanks for any help

Hi Sherees....It would probably be best to ask your SR when you get your call on Friday due to security reasons...    :~)
