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.

Goose Creek, all the way. Took the AAA Defensive Driving Class yesterday. Know where I'm heading for vacations! Oh Rhett, Rhett, where shall I go? Frankly Scarlet, I dont give a damn as long as its my hometown of Charleston! (liberally altered with all intent included). Got a computer and internet and we've downloaded Skype. Whoo hoo!
Binkers mom..
LOVE that!
Oh Rhett you scoundrel....l'll hate you till I die,lol...gotta love the ultimate drama queen,loll
just found the book Rhett's People at The Big Lots when I made my first trip there this summer. At $3, frankly Scarlet, I decided it was a perfectly wonderful bargain-because as God is my witness, I'll never pay full price for a book again!
my "cub" is in the Great Lakes still....thinks he's classing up in a week or the meantime, they have mandatory classes this week. ex: Suicide Prevention, Financial classes, Liberty "smarts"... etc... I think that's a great thing...all those "boring"<----(his words) I think is great.....sometimes, these sailors need some common sense kind of classes as well.......
