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.

Pleas keep my son in your prayers for his first 48 there. I am sure he will be fine but I am so worried.

Prayers going up Blondie!  You all have lifted my son up to our Heavenly Father when he was struggling and God heard our cries.  He is doing much better now so my heart goes out to all who are struggling.  Psalm 130 says "Out of the depths I cry to You, in darkest places I will call..." He hears, He knows, He loves!  Please be encouraged as you have all have encouraged us!

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.  Psalm 150:6

“I’m eager to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours. In this way, each of us will be a blessing to the other”   Romans 1:12 

Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.  Psalm 51:12

Asking for Prayers, a lot going on right now.  My ex-sailor has been in hospital and many follow up appointments.  She had to stop breastfeeding Tahlia, which is okay just more pressure, with hormones and trying to dry up and Tahlia's emotions....Thank God Joe has not deployed yet, meanwhile his grandpa is in the hospital (not going to make it).  BIL has had 2 strokes life flighted him last night. Close family friendly Dx. with cancer already in the bone, she takes care of 2 other elderly, Husband changing jobs.... I feel like NO MORE LORD.

But I know he is here holding us up.  Singing His Praises.

“If the Son sets you free, you are free through and through” John 8:36.

When Jesus said in Luke 4:18 that he came “to proclaim liberty to the captives” , he wasn’t just talking about physical prisons. He was talking about anything that keeps us from becoming all he wants us to be.

Lord, today I want to connect with other people and serve them with your love. Help me to unite with others who love you or want to know you.

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love casts out all fear” 1 John 4:18  

If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love . . . make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.  Philippians 2:1–2

Comment by Blondie on June 18, 2019 at 8:50am

And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming.  1 John 2:28

Lord, I want to grow deeper and stronger in my relationship with you. I commit today to spend some extra time in your presence.
