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.

Momterp - I just had an opportunity to read the news article. This really brings to light how sensitive our sailors jobs are and why it is so important for us to make sure we don't pry for too much information from them but also be as supportive as possible. 

News of treason, whether fully established or just the possibility, makes this mom uncomfortable - and more. It hits a lot closer to home, that is for sure.

Congratulations bigsky21!

Comment by bigsky21 yesterday

My son called at midnight last night....”sorry Mom, I know you were sleeping but I couldn’t wait to call...I passed my comp with room to spare!!” Those kind of late night calls I don’t mind getting :) Now to get those last couple signatures!

Comment by ProudOfK on Saturday
Momterp - that is very sad. So glad that vast majority are true patriots we can be proud of.

KayCee - hope your son did well on his test. Was that his 100% test or his Oral Board? Exciting he is getting so close to the end of the pipeline. Keep us posted were he gets assigned.

I just found out about this opportunity for our active duty sailors and their families. - Blue Star Museum admissions.

It is valid until Labor Day. The museum we were at offered free admission for our sailor and up to 5 or 7 family members. I think the admission offer varies among museums. Special exhibits may not be included.

This article is so sad to me—a Nuke who went astray! I’m glad the vast majority of our sailors are upstanding men and women who honorably serve their nation. So thankful for those who gave all!
