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.

Hi Donna  Great call-their PIR will be 10/14.  My son 's rank/rate (?) never sure which is the right term is MAA. 
My SR is MA also. Maybe that's how they were placed in this division.
Well ladies- I can now officially say I'm part of this group. My brother is in the division but not a MA (which I had to google).
Welcome. I'm so glad you are with us.
I changed up my name about, I'm the same that had posted under K'snavysis

Hi!  Welcome to the group!

Hi I received the form letter saturday and it was exciting to read the short blurb on the bottom of the page.  He said that his letters will be coming but not for another week.  I'm hoping that this is the week.  I love seeing the count down clock every time I sign on here.Hope everyone is doing fine and hanging in there, cuz I know it's so hard.
Hi I was wondering if anyone received a letter from their SR in this div yet?  I'm looking daily but no letters yet.
Hi Donna  I haven't received any.  I've waited at the door everyday for the mailman.  I thought we would have received one by today --hopefully by the weekend.  As soon as it comes I'll let you know.
I didn't get any mail either. Not that it is a given that I will get mail even when he has a chance to write. His gf will get a letter first, but she didn't get anything either. Is it just us 3 in the div (Roe, Donna?) or are their others? Maybe tomorrow?

I received a letter just today...short and sweet, but priceless...




Is your SR in 948? Welcome.
