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.

[Jesus said,] “Do to others as you would have them do to you.”  Luke 6:31

It is more blessed to give than to receive.  Acts 20:35

Father, you freely give your grace to all your children. Allow me to see everyone I encounter today through your eyes of compassion and acceptance. Lord, I realize that it’s truly a blessing when I can give of my time, resources, or possessions to someone in need. Open my eyes, show me who needs my help, and how I can give more.  I am truly Blessed  Lord for knowing you and having you as my Savior My I be your Blessing to Others, help me show them your Love. Amen

Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. 2 Peter 1:2

Lord, I have all that I need for today. Thank you for meeting all my needs and providing me with so many blessings.

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57

Jesus, thank you for all you endured so that I might know you and spend eternity with you in heaven. You are the ultimate victor and I praise you!

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17

Dear God, I want to reflect you and your grace and goodness in all that I think, say, and do.

“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be to me as you have said.” Then the angel left her. Luke 1:38

God, help me to hear your voice. Give me the desire to say yes to you in all things.

[Jesus said,] “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” Luke 12:15

Father, please show me what is the message of my life. Help me to be aware of any greed or self-gain that draws me away from it.

Comment by Blondie on December 13, 2019 at 12:47pm

[Jesus said,] “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth . . . But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven . . .”

Matthew 6:19–20

Lord, you provide all I need. I don’t have to hoard possessions or accumulate money to leave an everlasting legacy. I only have to follow you.

Comment by Blondie on December 11, 2019 at 12:36pm

“My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed . . .” Luke 1:46–49

Dear God, today I ask for a fuller understanding and appreciation of your many gifts. Increase my faith, and allow your works to be done through me.

“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by Me” (John 14:6).

“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.” Matthew 24:42

Lord, show me how to prepare myself for your coming. Help me to live in a way that pleases and honors you.

Nov. was a Busy month for us and Dec. looks the same. 

But know that you and your families are ALWAYS in my Prayers.

Comment by Blondie on December 4, 2019 at 11:25am

I will listen to what God the Lord will say; he promises peace to his people, his saints . . .  Psalm 85:8

Lord, I want to experience the true peace that comes from knowing you. I look forward to spending more time with you today, Father.

Comment by Blondie on December 4, 2019 at 11:18am

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
John 1:14

Jesus, you are the Word made flesh, and I give you thanks and praise for the gift of salvation and the process of redemption.
