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.

85-Light Blue with Red Anchor. 

done! your div colors are posted!

Okay 086, now where do we get these white with blue anchor scarfs?

I just think I will get creative. I will go to Hobby lobby or Michael's and get some fleece fabric. I am not a seamstress. Therefore i will buy most likely a Yard and 1/2 per person and cut the fabric 12 to 16 inches wide.  fold in half and cut small 1/2 inch fringe... Fine the anchor and iron it on.. Dear, it may not look the best but i will try. I do not think it is a big deal. If you need help, let me know. Remember this is new to me too. Whatever turns up will be great. As long were in white scarfs. Are you getting excited??? I cannot wait.

buy (from lala or a local store) or make! What ever your time, preference and budget allow.

I ordered from Lala. She is all over the post... her e mail is  Are you getting excited???? I am so happy:)  Sending HUHS your way.

Has anyone had luck finding blue iron-anchors?  I am having a heck of a time here in Vegas, unless I try and order online...  I can find gold anchors galore, but with a yellow scarf, that will be hard to see.  A little frustrated this morning...  But good morning all, and Happy President's Day!  :)
