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. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

B'sNukeMoM - just saw your post about the get together. It was really fun. I hope the Michigan mom's continue to have get togethers. I don't know if it is just me but I feel out of sorts a lot of times as Michigan is not a heavy military state (if that makes sense). I visit Chicago, Pensacola and Annapolis and they are military town.There is a "vibe" that you feel.

Reminder that there will be a Navy family get together tomorrow in Muskegon - hope to see some of you out there!

Tour of the LST 393, lunch, then tour of the USS Silversides in Muskegon on July 13 @ 10:00 am. This is open to family (not just moms).

WaterLily - Nice that you were able to do a family vacation - I'm sure you made some good memories!  What day does your son leave?

Comment by WaterLily on July 8, 2019 at 12:55pm

Monday should definitely be optional.  Ugh!  I feel especially tired today, as our family just got back from vacation and now we're sending our future sailor off to boot camp this week.
