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.

Welcome Monkeys_Mom!

I'm not much help with what to bring either as my son lived in an apartment off base.  I will concur with Yvonne though - space is limited so really just the bare essentials. 

Also - bring a good lock.  Unfortunately there is theft on the ships :(

Not sure what to tell you about what he should bring but there is limited space on the ship.

Welcome aboard! My husband and I open our home on the weekends and invite Sailors over to give them a place away from the ship. we feed them, play board games, watch movies, go to events in the area here in Virginia Beach, and also day trips to the Outer Banks when the weather is warm. :) We'd like to invite your son over to join us if he would like to come. Our page on this site will tell you more about us...check it out. :) We hope he enjoys the Navy!

Hi all - how is everyone doing?

My son (former Truman sailor) & his gf (former Lincoln sailor) were home in CA over the holidays and they got engaged!  We are so excited - wedding is planned for 2020 (in CA).
