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.

Go 347!  Go Navy!  You can do this.  I am praying for all our kids.
BS 21 you so have this...go 347...2 more days...
No calls yet?
I read somewhere on this site that the calls usually start around 2.  Still.... keeping the phone with me at all times. :-)

Any calls yet? I know 345 and 346 are calling... 


I just spoke to my son!!! YEAH!! He passed and even got promoted. He said Battlestations was awesome!  (he would) Flys to A school early Sunday mornring.
Got home from work to a message on the machine - I have a SAILOR.  I believe I read elsewhere that everyone in the division passed. Yeah!
Hope everyone had a great time at PIR! My son is sending the Keel book to us. Can't wait to see the pictures. :-)  One of the guys from the group is in A school with him in Pensacola and is his roommate.  Glad he's got a friend to hang out with.
PIR was fantastic - I hadn't been aware ahead of time that our sailors were graduating on such a special day - the 100th anniversary of the Great Lakes Bootcamp.  One mistake that we made was that we didn't get there as early as we wanted to and really had to wait on line for a long time.  When we finally got in we couldn't sit with 347, but it was still an amazing experience for our entire family.  Since our son was staying at Great Lakes for A School he had to leave us right after ceremony, then called us hours later once he was moved into his new quarters.  He was able to stay out till 10pm both Fri and Sat nights so we did have an awesome time with him.  I think he was getting tired from all of our questions.  Our flight on Sun was at 1pm, so we didn't get to see him that day.  He had a gret day of it, feeling "free", was able to watch the Giant game and explore the base a little.  From the phone calls I've been getting, he seems so happy and looking forward to a great experience ahead!!
