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.

Congrats Kim8 to your son! My son just hit his 5 years mark from his commissioning. It was one of our proudest moments.

M's mom - Did you get the note I sent to your inbox?

Congrats to your son!    Scroll down in this comment line to June 25, 2020 and read my response to penelopewms about OCS.

I hope you will be able to attend his commissioning ceremony.  You will just about burst with pride!  It meant so much more to me than my son's high school or college graduation.  Take plenty of tissues.   Anchors Aweigh!

Hi all! My son received his FINSEL yesterday! He's in the 05-21 class starting on Oct 18th! ROM starts Oct 4th in 11 days! So, it's really real now. Just had to share with those who understand what this means & know the range of emotions I'm feeling right now.

Hi M's mom! Sent you a message. Nope, they aren’t in CONUS anymore.
