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.

Feels like coming home here. When sailor called sat he had no idea it was his 1 year already. He said the one thing recount on is all his navy mom2's. He get boxes and birthday cards. Not too many on the ship do. He said thanks.

I could not imagine doing this last year with a better group of women!  Thanks for all the laughs, sharing the tears, lifting my heart and hopes and always being there when no one else understood.  I am honored to know you all.  Now lets begin year #2!!!!  HooYah!!!!!!!!!!

Texted with my son about what was going on for him this week last year and if he thinks about it.  He said he tries very hard NOT to think about it.  I know during boot camp they treated the sailors like little children with no freedoms and my son hated that.  But to get to his goal of rescue swimmer, he has to go through a series of schools and training, boot camp being his first, so I always thought of his graduation as 1 school down, 4 left to go. He is now in his final school, doing fabulous, and targeted to graduate mid January.  To reiterate what so many of you have said, all the sailors have come so far and I am so proud of all the progress each of them has made and the contribution they are making to keep our country safe.

365 days! Doesn't seem possible. I feel like I have known you ladies forever. I am truly blessed to know you all. Another year, we can do it. Thanks for the pictures. Sailor takes nothing! Cake!!!! Shameful to cut it. But oh boy I can taste it!
Comment by txsailorsam-Donna on October 1, 2011 at 9:31am

LTLY... ditto. So well said. You ladies are who I look for on fb. All the sailor stuff has been hard but has given me hope in light of the other stuff this year has held for me. It has been probable the worst year of my life... Sam leaving for the Navy gives me hope. He is doing something with his life, giving back to society in some form. I have lost a dad, a father-in-law and my D-I-L has taken my grandson all with in the last year. My son Tim has nearly lost it over losing his son..... All this to say SF going in the navy and you ladies popping up on fb have been a bright light in an otherwise bleak year. THANKS. 

 

Some of you are so funny, giving me something to laugh about. I am THANKFUL to you. 

Can we make it another year?  HOOYAH, yes!

I love that cake. I don't think I would eat it. It's a work of art.

 

Comment by LTLY on October 1, 2011 at 1:49am
I can't bake, but if I could I would make us this cake to celebrate! 
Comment by LTLY on October 1, 2011 at 1:47am
Less than 8 hours! What a LONG year it has been! What a team WE are!! We have laughed, cried, and prayed together in an attempt to stay sane through one of the most emotionally draining experiences many of us have ever gone through. I love you all! I most definitely could not have done it with out you all! I really enjoy keeping up with some of you on FB...and Thank God that Maureen (reeniegalla) is on FB and is such a pro at it!! Looking forward to keeping in touch with many of you throughout the next year...and the next, and the next one after that!
