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.

OK I am so excited I can't think straight! Going to spend the next couple of days getting ready to leave. Making sure we have everything all worked out and packed. Can't believe that I am going to see her in 3 days! Time has gone by so slowly so far. I hope these next couple of days fly by. Well, a girl can dream! :) I wish everyone a safe trip and I am looking forward to meeting you all. Fair winds and following seas!

I am very excited as well Dannaproud and can't wait to finally be there!  Do any of you in 365/366 have ribbons or anything?  I have not been able to get any of those extras but I think we should have something at the Meet and Greet to make our Divisions stand out so we can all be sure to all meet and sit together.  Any ideas?  :)

I ordered ribbons, but I haven't received them yet. They had her Last name and Division on it. I hope I receive them by tomorrow, or they will not make it to PIR. We're heading to LAX tomorrow night! I'm so excited.

There is supposed to be name tags so I am going to put my name and then N4M 365 under it.

Ok ladies this will be my last post before I leave. Want you all to know that I appreciate you and wouldn't have gotten through those first several weeks without you all and this site. Love and good wishes to everyone! Safe journey to everyone traveling.

Travel safely Dannaproud and we will see you soon!  I leave tomorrow morning and it can't get here soon enough... Can't believe we are finally here and about to see our Sailor's!

I hope everyone made it back safely and had a WONDERFUL weekend with their Sailors!  Unfortunately I was only able to locate a few of you at the Meet and Greet (it was so nice to finally meet you) and was able to sit next to an amazing family at PIR, but our division looked great and did an amazing job as a team over the last 9 weeks.  It was a very proud moment for us all.  Leaving my son again was not easy but I cherish the time we had this weekend and couldn't be any prouder! Justin will be at A-school in Great Lakes and I know he has already made quite a few friends so I hope to see some of you on the Great Lakes A-school page as well... Congrats to all!
