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.

Ladies, I just want you to know I'm going to be quiet for the next two weeks!  Hubby and I are leaving Saturday for a 12 day Alaskan cruise which includes 7 days on the ship and then a train ride, 2 nights at one lodge, bus to another lodge and 2 nights there!!!  The lodges are at Denali National Park.  Then we're going back to Seattle to spend a few days with daughter in law and granddaughter!!  Unfortunately sailor son is deployed to Japan so we don't get to see him this visit!!  

I'll try to get on if I can but I think we have to pay for internet on the ship.  And I don't plan on spending much time on my computer!!!!!  I'll catch up when I get back!!!  Have fun Ladies!!!

Lulubugg, you can also call the post office and ask for Military Care Kit - they're  FREE! Each kit has several boxes (I think 6 in all), 3 different sizes, packing tape and mailing labels. Here's the #: 800 610-8734.  I believe you can request as many as 10 kits at a time. I stocked up on these during my sailor's deployment!

I'd be careful with the tweezers cause if you just put them in an envelope they won't go through the postal system, even wrapped. I'd use the smallest padded envelope, even if she has to open it in front of others it would just be those items and they are ok. 

Comment by JayDee659 on July 6, 2018 at 2:03pm

LL mom I got away with sending my daughter ace bandages, i just put them in a standard envelope and unrolled them so they were flat. So I'd think anything in a standard envelope could work.
