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.

I am a boot camp mom right now When I came across this group I thought it to be wonderful for all of us to be praying at 9pm (according to time zone) I make sure that I am praying for all everyday. My son is about to do BS 21 this week so I am asking for pray for all of the recruits I hope this is received because I have not seen a lot of activity lately on the comment wall God Bless

There appears to be some major issues with my son's ship while on deployment. Please pray for them during this time.

Good Morning everyone. Got an e-mail from my sailor and things are not going well on his first deployment. He wasn't able get off the ship in their first port, He is stressed working 17+ hours somedays and the DIV is having difficulty with their boss. As you all know this is hard for a mom to hear and not be able to help. As you are praying for our sailors could you add a little extra for him and his DIV. He so looking foward to this deployment. He is on a carrier.

Thanks and Hugs!

Lord God hear our prayers for our sailors and their families. I pray for protection for those in harms way. I pray for peace for the families whose loved ones are away from home. I pray that those that do not know you, will find their way to you. Bring about your will in their lives.
Thank you for your love, your peace, your protection
I ask these in the precious name of Jesus
