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.

Just wanted to share - this was back when B was in Prototype - we went to visit him in NY for Easter and this was the basket we put together for him lol!  Sure loved visiting Ballston Spa ;-D

And ladies - be sure to take a look at the poem that SuzyQ wrote about boot camp - you can see the link to it on her page.  Brings back some memories that's for sure!

Hi all - Happy Friday (I've got my RED on!) and yes, congratulations to all those graduating today ~ have a wonderful time!!

SubMom - I'm so very happy that you had such a wonderful visit with your son.  It sounds like things are going much better for him.  I'm sure he's relieved to be done with Power School (that was the worst of the schools for B).  Sounds like he was able to "re-charge" his battery and he will be good to go for prototype!  Good job!

First and foremost congratulations to all graduating Prototype. I hope you all have wonderful weather and memorable visits!! We just got home from visiting our sailor (graduated PowerSchool last week). Our sailor kidnapped his grandma and grandpa one day and took them to Angel Oak then kidnapped his dad and grandpa to go to the gun range. We met one of his roommates and his parents- very nice people. They have a great apartment. I am so happy for them. It is strange to them adulting but very cool at the same time. I hope everyone has a blessed Easter
