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.

Happy belated Birthday Anna!!!! I hope you had a wonderful day and have a very happy year! XOXO

Congratulations B'sNukeMom! Happy times!

We're in San Diego visiting our sailor daughter - she still doesn't have a date to leave the ship but it's coming and we didn't want to miss an opportunity for a hug before she's 3,000 miles away!

Hope everyone is safe and well.

Happy belated birthday Anna. I for one stopped acknowledging birthdays years ago.

B’sNukeMom; congratulations to the couple.

No leave for my Sailor girl. Guess we are all going through missing physical hugs from them. Restrictions flying into Oahu is delaying our visit to her. Everyone do your part and social distance. I have family members that decided to visit churches with hugs and hand shakes and now they are positive for Covid. 84 year old aunt is in the hospital. When hubby and I go to church we social distance. It is that simple. I strongly dislike wearing a mask. But I wear it to protect and respect others. That is my rant. Missing my girl and want this stuff to get controlled.

Ladies, I fear I was remiss in not acknowledging Anna's birthday last week.  Please help me wish a Happy Belated Birthday to our fearless leader!  

Sorry Anna :(

LadyBluefire - sorry don't know what C School is. lol  That's awesome that your daughter is #2. Wow 0.1% is nothing. I'm sure if she has vowed to pass him she well. So is she in A School until January?

Comment by LadyBluefire on July 10, 2020 at 5:56pm

Kaitlynsmom - she has been there since April. She is going to go to C school as well...right now she is #2 in her class. #1 is an Army kid so she has vowed to pass him though their GPA difference is like 0.1% lol. So Close!

Comment by Kaitlynsmom on July 10, 2020 at 5:50pm

LadyBluefire - oops CTR. How long has your daughter been in Pensacola?

Comment by deniseg on July 10, 2020 at 8:59am

Good Morning and Happy Friday!  We made it through another week!

Oleander - Yes, omg, I was trying so hard not to cry during our call because I was afraid it would make her start crying again! Lol!

Gigi - I guess the phone reception is unpredictable.  That I"m a sailor call must have been terrific!  I can't wait for mine. 

Anti M- Good to know that the Navy dentists are so experienced and trustworthy.  

LadyBluefire - Ah, technology!  A blessing and a curse lol!  Thanks the call made my week!

Partyofseven - Yes, she is emotional to begin with, so I'm not surprised.  I also got a letter yesterday from her and she was in a very bad mood.  I'm glad she had me to vent to.  That's what moms are for! Lol. I wanted to get her wisdom teeth taken out beforehand, but then COVID struck. Ugh. 

Comment by Kaitlynsmom on July 9, 2020 at 4:12pm

Oleander - thanks for the words of encouragement. I'm finding it rather difficult to navigate this page so I apologize for my late reply.

JayDee- I did receive that few second call but didn't really help. I'm hoping to receive her letter soon so I have an address. I have actually already written her 3 short but sweet letters to mail just as soon as I receive her address.

She is actually going to A School for CRT.

Thanks ladies for being patient with my reply. Have a great afternoon.
