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.

So good to hear Blondie

Comment by Blondie on August 27, 2019 at 11:40am

They all arrived safely, thank you.  Tahlia a BIG Nana 's girl. We got to stop in and see Little Joseph for a bit. Tahlia was a bit jealous.  Mommy couldn't meet or hold him, after about 10 mins. Nana could pick him up. Tahlia got off my lap and sat on Mommies. I had Joseph a whole 3 mins. and Tahlia demanded, give him to Papa and crawled back in my lap. LOL  Mommy, Daddy and Tahlia all drove down (1 1/2 hours) this morning to visit, can't wait to hear what she thought today.  Dave, Amanda & Joseph is coming for the long weekend so hoping she gets use to him. My house is crowded and noisy and I'm LOVING every min. of it. 

Thank you God for family.

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  2 Peter 3:18

Lord, I want to step out in faith and move beyond my comfort zone. I want others to know/see how much I love you and how your grace is transforming my life.

For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
Psalm 36:9

Lord, thank you for the many ways you refresh and revive us. Give us your Living Water so our longings may be satisfied and our hearts may grow closer to you. 

A happy heart makes the face cheerful . . . Proverbs 15:13

God, I sometimes lose sight of what truly makes me happy and satisfied—my relationship with you. Thank you for the peace, joy, and hope you provide today. Father, Thank you for my family and these special times that we can share and Praise you. through Christ Your Son, Amen

Tomorrow I pick up my daughter and granddaughter at the airport, and her husband is driving 12 hours straight with the dogs, Please keep us all in your thoughts and prayers. Asking for safe and easy travels. 

For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.  Matthew 18:20

Love It!


Comment by Blondie on August 21, 2019 at 10:20am

We love because he first loved us.  1 John 4:19

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.  1 Peter 4:8

Lord, help me to love others the way you love me. Allow me to demonstrate your patience, compassion, and mercy to everyone I see today. When I’m tempted to judge others for what they do and condemn them in my heart, help me to show them the mercy and love that you show to me.
