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.

After much thought, insight and work - Molly and "her crew" came up with this label.
I am not sure exactly who the designer is - but I think they did a GREAT job!!

Let's put this label on every card, letter and package we send!
Hopefully, "sending Molly's" becomes a household name!!


The label is about 2" x 3". All you need to do is find labels that fit your printer and make them up with the attached picture. If you don't know how to make labels - just buy some and then let me know what brand you bought. There usually is a number on the package - Like Avery 8163 are 2" x 4",

The "WeShipLove.jpg." attachment is if you want to make your own label.

The other attachment is labels using the Avery 8163 like I discussed above.
I can open a jpg but not the doc. If you would just post a picture of it I can save it that way. Shipping lables is a great idea.
See if this works for you.

Thank you so much. It looks nice.

Molly can I post it on Twitter instead of the sailor man thats on it now?
Yes Maam -----say goodbye to our copywrited little friend and hello to our MAS MOM MADE LABEL
The Mom that made our official shipping label is Julie (Adams Mom) Yes siree bob ---- everything here at MAS is made with Love !!
Julie, you did a FANTASTIC job!! I just love it
Thanks Brenda Sue, I really enjoyed doing it because I love this group!!!
Another option ~

The labels could be printed out onto plain paper, cut them out and tape them to boxes or envelopes.

It should work with the "Shipping Label. doc." The "WeShipLove.jpg" one is very large as is, but can be resized.
duh - I don't know why I didn't think of that simple solution!!
I called my postal place a couple of weeks ago and asked him about this and I forgot exactly what he said - but I don't think they should be too huge!
I printed out the Shipping Labels.doc onto plain paper. I like the size...not too big, not too small, just right!
These are TERRIFIC!! Thank you so much, Julie (Adam's Mom). I can't wait to get some printed off.
Julie you did an AWESOME JOB...thanks ♥
You to Brenda, love ya
