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.

Well I think it’s time to give an update on my SR . I had received some letters last week. She told me she got held up in processing for a week due to needing divisions to fill up. Also in one of them she stated she missed her qualifying run by 45 seconds. They put her in a new division to help with her run. She said she was going to get a second try. That was the last thing I heard from her till TODAY.

MAMA GOT A CALL.

I can’t begin to explain how it felt hearing her voice again.

 She was crying (SO WAS I) by the time she got her official spill out but this is what she had to say. She ran her second run but she had sustained a mild knee injury which caused her to fail it, that was last week. They told her she got one more chance which was today.

 She had nailed it at home before she left (Here at home she passed it at 18 min flat). . Back to her story.

 Today she had her third and last chance and she was able to proudly tell me her graduation day is May 15th and she passed her run at 17.51 seconds.

 As always thank you for your continued prayers for her and support.
