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.

Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else.
1 Thessalonians 5:15

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

Father, Thank you for the peace, joy, and hope you provide us. 

Comment by Blondie on September 13, 2019 at 7:48am

Lord, be our guide and our protector
on the journey we are about to take.
Watch over us.
Protect us from accidents.
Keep us free from harm to body and soul.
Lord, support us with Your grace when we are tired.
Help us be patient in any trouble which may come our way.
Keep us always mindful of Your presence and love.

A lot of traveling this weekend, we are all splitting up some are driving 12 hours, some our flying 3 airports/2planes, some are just 3 hour trips each day.

Father God,

As we say farewell to our loved ones we entrust them into your care. We pray for happiness and joy to be ahead of them, for wisdom and guidance to be beside them, and for grace and truth to be behind them, pushing them onwards into your goodness. We know that you will always love and protect them, wherever they go.


We know that you will always love and protect them, wherever they go. 

"Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast."  Psalm 139:7-10, NIV

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Some we will see in 2 weeks, some in 14 weeks and some we will not see for almost a year. We ask God for His protection and ask that we can all meet again.  Father God, Go with my Love ones keep them safe and close to you. If it be Your will may I Hug them once again, May they always KNOW and FEEL my LOVE.  Through Christ Your Son, Amen

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.  Deuteronomy 6:5

. . . knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Proverbs 9:10

Father, I love you and want to devote my heart, soul, and strength to showing my love for you. Reveal any areas that I need to relinquish in order to love you more fully.  Thank you for the many ways you have protected, provided, and guided me. I trust you with my future and rely on you for whatever I’m facing today. In Christ your Son Amen

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.

Sending you Prayers your way:

O God, our heavenly Father, whose glory fills the whole creation, and whose presence we find wherever we go: preserve those who travel; surround them with your loving care; protect them from every danger; and bring them in safety to their journey's end; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”

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
