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.

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. James4:8

Comment by Blondie on April 2, 2019 at 8:43am

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.  Psalm 32:8

Father,I still have a lot to learn. Open my eyes to see and my ears to hear the lessons of your truth before me today. 

He guides me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.  Psalm 23:3

Remind me, Lord, that you know exactly what’s ahead of me. I can trust you as my guide to take me through each step on my life’s journey. Lead me Lord.

He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.  Psalm 23:2–3

Dear God, I feel so overwhelmed by life’s demands most of the time. Remind me that your peace is always available to me, no matter how stressed I may feel. Thank You Lord. I need you.

Thank you for these scriptures and words of encouragement - so true!  I am asking us to pray for all of our recruits and sailors who might be dealing with some type of physical injury or setback. They all work so hard and push themselves to the limit.  This could be discouraging and I pray against any type of discouragement for these brave young men and women.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.  Psalm 23:1

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  Psalm 91:1

Jesus, please lead me as the Lord of my life. Remind me that I have more than enough of what my heart truly desires when I have your love. Father, I release my cares and worries to you. Help me to still my soul before you, soaking in your presence, trusting in your Love and Care.  If you are for us, who can be against us?  Thank you Lord, Amen

“I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13

I trust you, Lord, and appreciate the way you reassure me when I’m afraid. Thank you for going with me today, holding my hand, and leading the way. Amen

[Jesus said,] “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”  Matthew 11:28

Father, like a child lying against a parent’s shoulder, let me lean on you, secure in the tender strength of your arms, and let go of all my worries. Thank You Father for your love. Amen

"Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us" (Titus 3:5)

Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, that He died for your sins, and rose again (I Cor. 15:3,4)For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,

God loves you; Christ died to save YOU!
