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.

Hopefully you are all ready for a journey to remember.  AG school will be tough at times but well worth it.  Never know where he will end up after that.  For us a little over 4 years finds our sailor in Japan for 3 years and is currently deployed till mid April. He leaves a wife and infant in Japan. Hopefully they will get to the states this Spring or Summer before he takes off again.  Home is wherever the Navy sends you.  :)

Hi All!  My son is heading to Boot in July, and hopefully A school for AG in September.

My daughter will be going to school for AG. She ships to boot next week, so should be arriving in MS in January sometime.

Comment by Proud AG Mama on October 28, 2014 at 7:27pm

My son enjoyed it. Said it was hot. He was there June to Oct. It should be cooler for your daughter. What rate (job) is she?

Comment by Bert on October 28, 2014 at 10:26am

My daughter is supposedly headed there after boot. But she doesn't leave for boot till the 5th of Nov.

My son will be heading to A school in Biloxi after his PIR on July 3rd for AG. Any other sailors heading that way?

DenverNavyMom,  sent you a friend request so we can chat.  Look for it on your page.

Hello all!  I too have a son that will be attending A School in Biloxi for AG.  He arrives in a few week.  I understand that sometimes they have to wait a bit to start in order to "class up".  I can understand this since it apprear's to be so few AG's in the navy.  My hubby and I will be in Mississippi for part of March and April to hang out with our son on the weekends (when he is finally able to)  Any other AG family members going to be there during that time?
