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.

Pat, to stick, stick and stick like that is totally wrong! I hope that they did get what they needed for the test! Have they given painkillers to help her now.
Comment by JM-ISmomx2 on October 2, 2009 at 8:39pm
OH my gosh Pat. What can any of us do. Please let me know. Just about an hour and a half away. With all that, did they actually get the fluid that they needed or did they mess up on alll 3 again? Lets us know.
Have to go I will be back later. I have a softball game in an hour.

Ok, We are supposed to be getting a cold front. Temp should go all the way down to 70 degrees. When it hits 65 it is definately stew weather. Yes, the Angels are from Anaheim ( they made the playoffs) and we are absolutely not from Los Angeles!!! Sorry no insult, just a sore spot.
Glad to see you back DC. Hope your visit went well. I'm all for going out to eat, especially in this weather.

Marianne, Personally I'm with Pat. I would be reluctant to purchase the car. It may be a good deal but it may not be. Who will pay shipping costs? What are potential problems with bringing it back into the US?

Let me see if I can print the cheat sheet as a PDF file.

KR, I love a storm on the plains ... IF ... I have a shelter nearby incase of a tornado.

Oh, Pat, I feel so for your daughter. I have absolutely terrible veins and know what it is like to be stuck many imes. The difference is that my sticking was not into my spine but a vein. I am crying with you. Have Jenn ask ... no insist ... for some happy juice. It will relax her, which might make it easier and it will certainly make it more pain free.

A globe also works well for the geographically challenged. We have one and love it. Now given the political situations in the world it is constantly changing somewhat.

Think I'll get Jack out. While the company was here, I was designated driver. I missed all that lovely wine they were having last night and didn't even sample the cognac!

The weather here has cooled off a lot. Night before last, our bedroom was so chilly that I had to wear a chemo cap to keep warm! I really enjoy sleeping in a cool bedroom but it helps to have hair!

Joanne, one time we went through Chicago on the rain. We had to find a way to entertain a couple of young boys (4-6). We decided that we would go to the Field Museum and took a taxi from the train station to the museum. After we got out and walked up the steps we found out the museum was closed. Now we had little money so we decided to walk to the aquarium ... wrong idea. It was New Yea's Day, bitter cold and it was a very long walk along the lake sore. We only went part way before we hailed a taxi to take us back to the toasty train station!

I'm here! Company left ... :-( These were college buddies. We have been through so much together over the year. They came all the way to Maine and we spent most of the time talking and not sight seeing. We ate out both nights ... YUM and both days for lunch. No one wanted to be bothered cooking.

Now, I need to catch up.

For got to ask. Has anyone heard form DC lately. Miss her.
Comment by JM-ISmomx2 on October 2, 2009 at 9:32am
It will be 95 degrees for Jenn and I here in So CA, No beef stew tonight. Got a softball game and hawaiian pizza planned. Thinking of you and Jenn today Pat. Good morning to all the rest of the Ladies. Joanne don't work too hard. So glad it's Friday. Need to catch up on sleep.

Pat Puffy is mine!!! He is usually hanging around in his girls car.
Comment by JM-ISmomx2 on October 1, 2009 at 9:24pm
Yes Susan, this is my version of Flat Stanley only it is local, That is where I got the idea from. Puffy is on a mission to find his girl.
