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.

Rebecca--what a sweet memory of your Robert reading. I'm sure your mother is still hearing his voice fondly.
Please know we are with you at this difficult time in your life.
God Bless

Daniel--such a godly name. He will be in my prayers, as are all our recruits and sailors.

Sunday’s Reflection

GOD OF THE HEAVENS and the earth,
We need your peace.
Send your gentle, fierce Spirit
To all the war-torn lands
And broken relationships.
Come, God of peace.
We need you today.

Heavenly father, we lift up Ron, who has dedicated his life to you thorough the youth. We know he has a big tear in his heart over the young believer who lost his life in Belize. Please uphold Ron as he now ministers to this young person's family in addition to his own grief. And be with this family and support them through the coming weeks as they await the body of their loved one.
We ask that Ron finds grace through this trial.
In Jesus name we pray, Amen

Dear Lord
Only you can guide our medical teams through intervention. Please be with Lisa and her Mom Audrey. Hold her Mom in your loving hands. Help them understand all the new jargon they are going to hear. Keep them steady and strong. And always have them in our hearts as we pray for health and the best treatments possible.
Uphold Lisa as she helps her mom. Let her know that we are there in spirit, and available by phone if necessary.
In Jesus' Name we Pray, Amen

Angie--my Navy Mom heart joins you in your prayer--it could not be said any better.

The wreck was a shinook (sp??) helicopter in Iraq. Lord keep all of our military safe under the shadow of your mighty wing especially those who are in harms way throughout this world. We love you Lord and trust you.

Debra--had not heard about the plane wreck. As the old poem goes "no man is an island, entire unto itself." And so, every family's hurt becomes one of ours as we send our prayers to God and ask for his grace.
It's bed time--God Bless

Eternal God--please keep us focused on your word as we hear about financial problems throughout the country. Help our Navy families as they deal with hardships. And keep our ears open to listen to others needs.
In Jesus Name, Amen

Eternal God
Thank you for sparing as many lives as you did in the path of the storm. Please be with the families in the St. Louis area who lost those they loved due to the torrential rains. Help us to be aware of the pain and suffering many are going through with loss of family, homes and businesses. And give us strength to reach out and help. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen
