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.

Eternal God
We pray that you keep your people safe as they find themselves in the path of yet another horrible storm. It has been only 3 years since they faced this last. In the meantime they have lost homes, jobs, health and safety and security. We ask that you bless the protection of the levees, that you keep every one in the evacuation areas under your wings, and that you protect the service men and women who are also in Gustav's way.
Be with our sailors and their families. Keep lines of communications open. Lead the government to help in orchestrated and organized ways to maximize the safety of all.
Please be with all who will be watching the storms in the safety of their homes far away from the storms, and put them into action to help others.
We ask this in your name

AMEN.. my husband is in that storm
May Jesus calm the waters through his believers.
Please pray for all of those in the path of Hurricane Gustav. I just dropped my son off at Boot Camp after our last visit. He will be flying from Chicago to Dallas tomorrow morning and then flying from Dallas to Pensacola tomorrow afternoon and landing in Pensacola tomorrow evening around 6pm. Please pray for him as he arrives as this hurricane is heading into the Gulf. He has been told he will be on hold for a minimum of 8 weeks before his schooling starts. But he feels the urgency to be there when the hurricane hits. He said he may not be serving his Country in a way that you might think, like fighting an enemy. He wants to serve by helping any way he can helping those who will be affected by this storm. He said this is his time to stand out, this is his time to show what he is capable of, this is time to serve the Citizens of this great Country. I have never felt so much pride as I did when he told me this. He has no fear of flying right down in the middle of this. He is ready to show he is Navy strong .
Let The Wind Blow by the Impereals a song for those in the way of the storm.
This was a great song, and one I had never heard before. Thanks for sending it my (not just my, but it was needed) way!
Amen...Where two or more are gathered in his name..........
Let us all agree in prayer that the storm blow harmlessly, that the Gulf residents are spared harm or damages, in His name.
Let the Wind Blow is a song from the 80's. My children and I sang it during a very bad thunderstorm, where the lights went out for everyone on the block, but came back on in my house. No explanation except we were really fervent in prayer, for we were really afraid.
Thank you God as we slowly hear from the Moms we know who were in the hurricane's way (see Helpful Hurricane Hints.) Continue to keep them and their families safe. Thank you for allowing pets to go, too, as seen on the news. This has allowed many who might not otherwise leave to have the option of knowing their pets will be safe and reunited with them.
Beautiful prayer! I am adding my voice to your prayer, my son is in Gulfport, he has been evacuated to a warehouse "somewhere". Dear Lord keep everyone safe in this storm, watch over our sailors in the storms path!
