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.

Arrived at boot camp October 2nd

Hey everyone- my daughter left for boot camp October 2nd. I missed a call from her last Friday telling me that her graduation is December 13th. I feel like the worst mom in the world for missing her call. Really didn’t expect her to call so soon but…Continue

It is Navy Moms of Daughters - just like it was originally. I changed the new group name just a bit (I didn't use NAVY) because at the time Pat's group was still up.

You are not alone!!!
Comment by Anna on September 18, 2009 at 8:38pm
If we all go over to the other group I will send out a message to all 38 members of what we are doing. I do not want to loose anyone!!!

Susan H,
Now you said you were going out to mexican food - your husband is cooking...
Is he the chef at the restaurant or are you going out for mexican food because your husband is cooking!!!!!!!
Comment by Anna on September 18, 2009 at 8:33pm
I want the same thing Dori and Joanne.
I would love to turn the baton back to you as creator and moderator of the new original Navy Mom of Daughters group. I know it will be confusing to all the ladies but can we all just switch to the other group and I will close this one down?
Does that sound ok with everyone?
Comment by Anna on September 18, 2009 at 8:23pm
Congratulations on having your sailor home in an hour!! Enjoy every precious minute with her!!!
Comment by Anna on September 18, 2009 at 8:21pm
I am in agreement with the other comments here. I did tell you I was going to keep a similar name and the same icon so people would recognize the new group. I don't want there to be two groups competing - that is too difficult for the members. Should we all just go back to the other group and I will close this one down?
Comment by Anna on September 18, 2009 at 8:08pm
I'm with you - my drink of choice is Dr. Pepper - with sugar - to chase down the oatmeal cookies I ate!!! I'll be up until 3am!!!

Originally I was going to drop the 2 from the group name but then I realized it would negate the link that Pat sent out. Since she started the old group again I'm waiting for word from admin as to whether it is wise to have two groups of the same name. Especially if everyone is getting invites to the other group it would be impossible for members to be on both. I have no idea what is going on.
Comment by Anna on September 18, 2009 at 7:17pm
That is good news to hear!! Hopefully you will be able to get lots of letters from her and those occasional phone calls!!! Nov 6 will be here before you know it!
