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.

Hey Dayami! I live in Florida too! I'll tell you that the drives to SC arent really that bad esp if you are coming from Gainsville. (I see my Sailor about once every 2 weeks) I don't know when you plan on visiting but maybe you could write him snail mail? I dont know much about requesting thing goes because I have never had to do that. Do you know a roommate or maybe someone he knows in SC that has a facebook?
Comment by Dayami on February 6, 2011 at 10:14pm
Hello! I am going to spend a few days in Charleston with a friend, and really wanted to use the opportunity to visit my Sailor. The only problem is, his phone hasn't been working and there's a good chance it still won't be the weekend I get there. I was wondering if there was any other way to get in contact with him? He's currently on T-Track, and I know the schedules are hectic. I haven't had much chance to speak to him cause of his watch shifts and cell not working, but I would hate to go up there and not be able to see him even if it is just for an hour or even less. Am I allowed to request him somehow? (during his free time of course, I'm not trying to do anything while he's working, and I'm almost certain the weekend I'm going he has off.) Or do you guys have any other suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Welcome Dayami! Our son is in the beginning of Nuke school. He and Kelsey got married in December while he was home on leave. They are enjoying the new beginnings of a long future together.
Comment by Dayami on January 26, 2011 at 2:07am

Hey everyone, just joined this site and wanted to introduce myself. :) My name is Dayami, I'm 21 (turning 22 next month.) I first met and got together with my Sailor (boyfriend) when we were 13 and after going our separate ways, we've been back together for the last 2 months. He is also 21 and an EM currently in T-Track in South Carolina. I'm from Miami, Florida and going to school in Gainesville for Nursing but I'm back home for this semester to work. Looking forward to getting to know all of you! :)

Okay its all Stainless Steel.. do you think that falls under the silver color?
Comment by amanda on January 21, 2011 at 3:30pm
Christina- Typing this as my fiance speaks- can't be gold, only black, silver or leather color band. As long as it's mostly black and silver, everything is ok. So it can have blue numbers or something. Hope this helps.

Comment by Christina (EM Nuke gf 1111M ) on January 21, 2011 at 2:48pm
Well I am getting a customized one from Zales lol Its nothing extreme I just know with the Nuke school everything is top security as far as entering the building goes. I just want to make sure that the watch I am getting hes allowed to wear in school too

@Christina, Diego bought one at the NEX and I would think that any of them would be fine. How are things going for you?
