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 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

**UPDATE as of 11/10/2022 PIR vaccination is no longer required.

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

We had a nice but small (11) gathering on Oct. 18, 2020 on the patio of one of our Navy Mom Sisters.  It was a Sunday from 2:30-4:30 but many happily stayed to 5:00pm.

We will be having another in November.  Most of the info is on the Navy Moms of AZ Facebook page but I will post here as well.  The location is in east Mesa in Encore of the Eastmark Community which is close to Ray Rd. and Ellsworth Rd off the 202 east.  

All are welcome!

If anyone here is in contact with the creator JoyceTucsonMom please have her reach out to me.  There is an issue with the group and she is the only one that has the ability to correct it.

Welcome! Please let us know if you have any questions! My sailor has been in for 3 years, and this site was so helpful when he first joined.
