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.

Our son left for Biloxi at 2 a.m. Sat. morning. We only had Friday afternoon and evening with him but that's not to say your experience will be the same. Your son will have more info on that towards the end of BC.  It does make it hard to plan but the key is to be flexible no matter what.  Looks like he will be in MS. for the summer and it should be pretty warm.  :)

no, just regular friends.  There is an AG page but less active then this one!  I'm not good at finding people but if you want to look for me, it is Kelli Glaubitz.  My email is if you have any questions.

Thank you for the info. Where on facebook? Do you have a group?

Comment by kellig on March 16, 2012 at 7:29pm

Hi there, this is a slow page, as you can see!  Alot of us keep in touch on FB.  My son was done with A school last March but is stationed at Stennis Space Center so he's still in Biloxi.  It's "around" 3 months for A school and Nathan found out where he was going after they split into the individual military branches.  They started out with Army, Air Force and Navy all together for the first part of their training.

Hopefully 3/26 He will start school. We really dont know how long or where to after this.

Hello, this site sure doesn't have the traffic it use to have so new moms, wives and girlfriends need to keep it going. My son left there a year ago so you tend to move with them. Your son will love the area but the summer might be another story  : )

How long will your son be there?  and then where to?   good to see you here.

Does this school have logistics too?
Comment by nolaj on March 9, 2011 at 11:48am

Anyone out there with a sailor graduating at the end of March from A school?  We are not going for graduation but would love some pictures if you are going?   I know you won't be there Kelli, but maybe someone else?  Let me know. Thanks.
