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'm glad you both are safe.  I just saw some pictures online of the damage - they are saying that downtown Midland could be under 9 feet of water in the next 12 hours. This is horrible.  I hope that everyone is able to evacuate safely. 

And they said the chemical plant is activating their emergency plans.

Comment by SubMom on Wednesday

We’re safe and sound in our little town. I am curious to take a walk downtown though and see what the Kalamazoo river looks like. There’s so much beach loss and now the dams Are giving way. My heart just aches for those that are in the flood areas 

Comment by WaterLily on Wednesday

Yes, there has been quite a bit of flooding here in Michigan over the past few days and some areas are yet to see the worst as they wait for the large rivers to crest.  Our family has not been impacted.  The Grand River does run through our town but our house is high and dry and there are no dams near us that would be a concern, thankfully.  Thanks for checking on us, B'sNukeMoM!

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MMN on Wednesday

Just checking in to see that everyone is safe in MI.  I saw on the news that a couple of dams broke and there was some major flooding.  It didn't affect B&C as they are in Lansing.

Everyone good?

WaterLily - so glad your son got his orders. Hope he has a wonderful trip to his new duty station. 

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MMN on May 19, 2020 at 1:08pm

WaterLily - Facetime can sure be wonderful and it's nice that you could have dinner "together"!  I'm glad his road trip is going well.

Prayers for continued safe travels ;-D
