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.

Hi Valerie - hopefully you have his email address and he has you on the approved list with the ships Ombudsman so you can get the ship newsletters.  The 'WhatsApp" is a good app for both of you to use.  He just needs to have wifi to use it.  My son and I used the App and it's easy to use.

Here's the link to the WhatsApp:

Anna, he is in the Naval Aircrew Candidate School House.  My daughter's friend from high school just graduated from the school and she is a Marine.

Hi Mamabear! I still check in here from time to time. It was such a help when Molly was in BC. I would have enjoyed meeting in Jax. Who knows where she'll go next?? We might meet up yet. :) Looking forward to going out there and seeing where she is. She is really in her element there, working in the hospital.
