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.

Tina,

Welcome to this group!

I sent you a friend request on your page. If you look at our comment just before yours here, I explain in more detail of what my husband and I do. With Christmas just around the corner, and if your daughter can't be home, we'd like to invite her to come over . There will be several other sailors here as well.  Yvonne and John

Just wanted to say Hello to all. My daughter is currently stationed in Va on the USS George Washington. 

Comment by John and Yvonne on February 28, 2017 at 8:24pm

oops. I didn't mean to post that twice! :)

Comment by John and Yvonne on February 27, 2017 at 9:14pm

Any moms of sailors on the Washington:

Just thought I'd let you all know that my husband and I open our home on the weekends and invite any sailors who would like to , to come over and eat dinner with us, play board games, watch movies, etc. and just give them a place to hang out. We get together on Saturday evenings at 5 and then on Sunday at 1. Sunday is a day for a sit down lunch(dinner) with homemade bread and dessert and of course the main meal. We have a lot of fun together. So please pass this on to your sailors and let us know if any of them are interested . :)

Yvonne and John

I was told they would continue to live on the ship, but that could have changed
Comment by BBS on August 1, 2016 at 2:20pm

Does anyone know where the sailors will be living and what they will do for the 3 years a ship is in drydock? My son is currently E2 and arrived to Norfolk his first duty station this past May."
