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.

I was hoping to take a trip to Guam before our son leaves there but now am thinking that might not be possible due to Covid. :-( The beaches look wonderful!!

Thank you, Regina! His rate is an MMN3, so for now I assume he'll be cranking on the sub (when he finally gets there!) until he gets his Dolphins. LOL! 

My husband and I have lots of travel plans this year (empty nest and gonna enjoy it!), but hopefully next year will bring some opportunity to visit him in Guam. My fingers are crossed. How exciting to have your son and family much closer than Guam soon! That's wonderful!

Havasu, what’s your sons job? Good luck to your son.
We did get to visit 3 times in the 7 years our son has been stationed there, so if you get a chance to visit take it, the expense is worth it.  Our son has a house so at least we didn’t have to pay for a hotel. Our son and his family will only be 10 hour drive or a couple hour flight for his next duty station.

Yeah they figure it out pretty quick. He bought a car as his barrack was a couple mile walk in the heat. It was tough at first as his ship was deployed when he arrived for quite a few months so he was stuck trying to make his way on his own without much direction. But he did it!

4Maineboys, I loved reading that! My son mentioned he was nervous going there because he won't know anyone and essentially will have to start over making friends, but I know he'll be just fine. It's great to read that your Sailor likes it there and has made great friends! 

Italian Momma, How exciting to get to see him soon! Three hours is so close... I'm so excited for you!

Hello to the new moms of the group. My boy has been in Guam for 2 years. He finishes up his time there come April. We were not able to visit due to the cost. However we face timed a lot.He just erupted and will be coming back to the states. He will only be 3 hours away from home! I see road trips ahead!

Comment by 4Maineboys on February 15, 2020 at 2:28pm

Hi everyone!  My son is in Guam with the Oklahoma City.  I can't believe it will be two years in May.  He likes it as well for the most part although they have been in for a while and he said he almost misses being underway. Tough having him so far but I'm glad for his adventures. He's made some great friends and they keep busy!

Comment by Havasu on February 15, 2020 at 2:12pm

Thank you so much, Regina! That's great to know he loves the area. I do hope a visit will work out for us there some time in the future! 

Comment by Regina on February 14, 2020 at 6:02pm

Havasu, welcome to Guam, my son has been in Guam for 7 years and he loves it. However he will be leaving in April for his next duty station but is hoping he will make it back to Guam in the future. If you get the chance to go for a visit you should it’s absolutely beautiful.

Comment by Havasu on February 14, 2020 at 3:33pm

Hello, everyone! Just wanted to do a quick intro and say Hi! My son graduated Prototype school on January 31st and just received orders for Guam and is assigned to the USS Key West. He is to report there sometime in the last part of March.
