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.

Congrats Molly to your daughter. It's always nice when they notice and do something about it.  Prayers going up for her. 

No traveling in my future, except my trip to VA to see Daughter and Granddaughter. Which was planned a year ago!  My 2 Grandsons keep me busy in Ohio, along with my job :(  But hope it all works out for you all and you have a Blast!   Don't forget to toast those of us that are absent but with you in Heart and Spirit.

Oh wait... I lost the thread. You're talking Vegas?? That's close to me. I will be there the second to last week in June. Is that on the table??? Could we meet up? Yay! Crossing fingers.

Comment by Molly's Proud Mom on October 21, 2019 at 9:51pm

I'm jealous watching OK plans firm up. I want in!! I can't do that, but we'll be in Jacksonville over Christmas...anyone in the area then????

Molly is on the fast track at the hospital there as a commander took notice. She's so happy which makes me happy.

Sorry if this is being sent multiple times but for some reason it doesn't appear this is going  through ---

Yes Anna! Definitely after May 2nd - that would be great! Plus I don't want you rushing in that big rig of yours! : )

Comment by Anna on October 21, 2019 at 8:55pm


So would after May 2nd be better for you?? Otherwise hubby and I have to rush from OK to NV to get there mid April. How about everyone else - - - - - 

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MMN on October 17, 2019 at 12:24pm

I'm up for Vegas too!  We have B's wedding in July (7/19/20) but other than that I should be open to most dates ;-D

Comment by Oleander on October 17, 2019 at 9:23am

Sounds good Anna! the only conflict for me is the end of April - May 2nd. Otherwise..... Bring.It.On! 

Comment by Anna on October 16, 2019 at 9:56pm


I will certainly let you and Oleander know just as soon as I can pin down a date.  The weather is the biggest issue - making sure that we can drive from Florida to Oklahoma and then on to Vegas without encountering winter!!!!!

Comment by JayDee659 on October 16, 2019 at 10:30am

I'm in.  BUT I need a heads up as early as possible as to the date so that I can get a decent priced ticket!  Anna, as soon as you nail down your date, let us know.  SW has spring tickets on sale now....

Comment by Oleander on October 16, 2019 at 9:35am

Way to go potterycat, stay busy!!! That's a great way to get through the boot camp blues! Believe it or not in a few months you'll look back on this and think Wow that went by in a blink!

YES YES YES Anna! I'd LOVE to have a big get together here! C'mon ladies - let's make a plan!
