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.

B’sNukeMoM - you will have to contact me when you get closer to your trip! I’d love to meet you for coffee (time permitting). It will be cold but pretty.

SubMom - sounds like fun!  I wish I was in MI and could go. 

Looks like we are planning our visit to MI this December!  You probably think we are crazy to head to MI in December (I feel crazy going then lol!) but B & C will both be graduating from MSU - the dates are either 12/18 or 12/19 - so we will be there and hopefully we won't freeze!
