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.

“The joy of the Lord is your strength.”  Nehemiah 8:10

"Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?"  1 Corinthians 3:16

God,  Refresh me with your joy as I focus on all the good gifts and many blessing you give me each day. Father, thank you for living inside of me. Help me to honor you in my body, my mind, and my heart by choosing the best way available to me. May Your Spirit shine though me in my words and deeds. Through Christ Your Son Amen

“The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7

Lord, I love you so much and can never repay you for the amazing gift of grace you have given me through Christ’s death. Thank you for loving me today and every day.  Thank you for Life!

I hope you all have had a blessed Easter Day worshipping our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for his great sacrifice and resurrection for us - Hallelujah!  We got a txt from our sailor this morning that he was thanking God for the scripture in Matthew about He is risen and is our living Hope.  Really that is all that matters in this life and I praise God for revealing this to our son as he trusts in Him to help him in what he is doing through the Navy.  Love and prayers to all in this group and continuing prayers for all of our recruits and sailors.  Thank you!

My prayers for all recruits, sailors, and their families that they would truly draw near to God this Easter weekend and know the victory that is won through the shed blood of our Savior Jesus Christ "O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood, to every believer the promise of God; the vilest offender who truly believes, that moment from Jesus a pardon receives." from the old hymn To God Be the Glory.

A blessed Easter to all who read this and pray for our Sailors!

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.
