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.

We received our son's package of clothes and it made me laugh.  I have a feeling it was the LAST time he will just drop his britches, and pick them up to pack them ever again.  No folding, not even an attempt at folding.  Looking forward to seeing that sea bag the first time he packs that!!  Miss my boy but so stinking proud.

I would think another doctor took over the practice. The hospital I think will be able to give you answers to your questions.

KSMOM try contacting the Insurance company and let them know what is needed and maybe they can help its woth a shot, did anyone take over the Dr's practice? if so contact the Office and see maybe they can help. worth a try?

Comment by KSMOM on June 13, 2018 at 6:31pm

Hi ladies, I know it's a long shot but I don't know where else to ask.  My daughter just called (yay!).  She needs me to get in touch with a dr. she saw about a year ago to request them to send her records.  The problem is the Dr. retired and I have called every number I can find but no one know's how to get in touch with the Dr. or how to get the records.  My daughter did say something about getting them from insurance.  Does anyone know how to go about doing that?  We have Tricare so I would think the process would be easy...but then again I assume the Navy could access that themselves couldn't they?  I don't know where to go from here!
