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.

Hello everyone ...for about a yr and a half I have been hoping to connect with other family members with sailors in Kings Bay, GA. No one has started a group so I figured I would start one. Please share with anyone you know who has a sailor stationed in KB.

My son is stationed in Kings Bay.  He is on the Alaska - blue crew.  How about your sailor?

My son will be going to Kings Bay in January 2014.  He will be on the USSBN Wyoming. Gold Team. Hooyah!

would love to talk with anyone already in Kings Bay.

My son has been stationed in Kings Bay on the USS Wyoming for over 2 years. He's on the blue crew. He lives in Florida (just across the line) and really enjoys the beach and fishing during down time. My husband was also stationed out of Kings Bay nearly 30 years ago. He says the area has changed quite a bit. Will your son be living on base? It seems the sailors really do become each others second family and support each other well. As the mother of a sailor, find out who the ship's ombudsman is. If you can't get that information the one for the blue crew is:  Sarah at wyomingblueombudsman@gmail.com I'm sure  she could connect you with the one for the gold crew. The ombudsman are really good about providing families with updates, guidance and support as well as gather little boxes of gifts, moments, photos, snacks, from families that are then packed on the ship before the crews depart.

Thank you so much Martha for the info.. yes my son will be living on base//He is Gold Crew Wyoming . He is a STS..3rd class Petty Officer.  He will be leaving Groton, Connecticut to Kings Bay at the end of January.

We have been blessed to see him almost every weekend as we live 2 hours away. Next year will be quite the change! We hope to drive down to Kings Bay with him. I will contact the Blue Ombudsman about the Gold. Thank you so much, I am sure I will have more questions as we move along. Thanks again. Doreen (985cat)

The last few months I have been receiving requests to join the group. Some profiles don't look like they belong. Please send a message when requesting to join so I know you are truly a navy family member.
