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.

But I trust in you, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.” My times are in your hands; deliver me from my enemies and from those who pursue me.  Psalm 31:14–15

Lord, I’m so glad we can count on you today. You know what we're going through better than anyone, and I know you’re committed to seeing us through it.

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.”   Revelation 3:20

Jesus, thank you for entering my heart and giving me new life. I love you, Lord, and want to follow you in all areas of my life.

O Lord , be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress.  Isaiah 33:2

Lord, I don’t like the roller coaster of events and emotions that some days bring. Thank you for strengthening me and sustaining me through every turn.

Wait for the Lord ; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.  Psalm 27:14

Lord, I know that all things work together for good for those who love you. Thanks for giving us the patience to wait on you and the peace to know your timing is always best.  Thank you for Joseph Jude and helping and sustaining us.  We Praise you that they are both healthy and doing well. God is Good, ALL the time.  Praise be to Him.
