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.

Hi all - back from MI and back to work - trying to get caught up on work - ugh!

We had a wonderful time at the wedding - there was a total of 7 of us there (plus their 2 dogs who were in the wedding!).  We had planned on having it in her mom's backyard but it was raining (hard) so we had to move it inside. Everything went well and they are married and it was beautiful - even if it wasn't what they had originally planned.  The "renewal" is still set for May 16, 2021 at the original venue in CA.  I just hope that things are back to some sort of normalcy by then so we can have the celebration!  Never would have thought they would be doing a "zoom" wedding but it worked lol!

We had a wonderful time in MI.  Went by MSU to see the campus, saw the "Rock" and the Magic Johnson Statue.  Hubby had to see the football stadium - couldn't get inside but at least got pictures in the parking lot.  Went on a nice walk/hike at a park with B&C and their 2 dogs.  Hung out at their house and played games....just had a nice relaxing time.  It was good to see them and I'm so glad they were able to still do the wedding.  We had originally thought we would see them again in December at their graduation from MSU but they've been told no graduation - it will be online.  So darn, I won't get to see MI in the winter lol!

Hi ladies - leaving on a jet plane for MI tomorrow!  The wedding is Sunday ;-D  Can't wait.  I wish I would have more time (and we weren't in the middle of a pandemic) so I could meet up with some of you but we'll have to try it on another visit.  I'll be thinking of all of you......I'll post some pictures!
