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.

Nov. was a Busy month for us and Dec. looks the same. 

But know that you and your families are ALWAYS in my Prayers.

I will listen to what God the Lord will say; he promises peace to his people, his saints . . .  Psalm 85:8

Lord, I want to experience the true peace that comes from knowing you. I look forward to spending more time with you today, Father.

Comment by Blondie on Wednesday

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
John 1:14

Jesus, you are the Word made flesh, and I give you thanks and praise for the gift of salvation and the process of redemption.

“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8

Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit . . . Ephesians 4:3

Heavenly Father, Thank you for your power, strength, and grace that help us to persevere. Lord, thank you for my church and the believers who provide community to each other. Help us to be unified in your Spirit—loving, forgiving, and serving together. through Christ Your Son, Amen

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. . . . look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
Philippians 2:3–4

The fear of the Lord teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honor.   Proverbs 15:33

Therefore I glory in Christ Jesus in my service to God.
Romans 15:17

boy, does the World need more of this!

Remind me that in order to find my life I must lose it, Lord.  I thank and praise you for the many things you continue to teach me. Open my eyes and ears to the wisdom you want to give me today.Father, thank you for the unique way you’ve created me. Help me to glorify you by the way I use these gifts to serve others. Amen

. . . let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.   Hebrews 10:22

Lord, I find myself carrying around mistakes I’ve made and sins I’ve committed. Thank you for forgiving and refreshing me with a clean start today.

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Romans 14:17

Lord, allow me to remain vigilant about what I allow into my mind. I want to please you in all that I think, do, and say.

Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.            Ephesians 5:1–2

Lord, allow me to be a sweet aroma, fragrant with the love of Christ, to all those around me today.

Comment by Blondie on October 18, 2019 at 3:24pm

Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand.
Psalm 73:23

Dear Father, for all my grown-up responsibilities and roles, I’m always your child. Thank you for holding my hand and going with me each step, each day.
