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:  wooohoo!!!  That is so exciting for them!  Happy they were able to find something they love!

Their offer on the new build was accepted!  This one should go through as there shouldn't be any issues with the inspection (only have to do termite since it's a brand new home) and the appraisal.  Fingers crossed the VA gets everything done in a timely manner for them - they are both so excited ;-D

Welcome to the group Spencers mom!

I don't live in MI but my veteran son and daughter in love (also a veteran) live in MI.  They are currently house hunting in Burton and are putting in an offer on a new build home today!  Fingers crossed they get this one as it's been a bit of a challenge the last few weeks as they've been house hunting.  We were just there in July for their wedding.  If you go back a few pages you can see some pictures I posted.

Feel free to jump in with any questions you may have!

Happy Saturday!

Hi all - Happy Tuesday!

Well they passed on the house they were looking at.  There was an issue with "vermiculite" in the attic and the sellers didn't want to give any concessions on it so they chose to walk away from that house as it could be quite costly to eradicate it.  But they already found another that they are going to look at fingers crossed this one works out!
