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.

Hi Navy moms,

I've been asked to be the mom of the month for November.  I prefer to think of it as the Group of the Month since it's a group effort.   We will be packing for 250 males and 3 Females.  Let's make this Christmas so magical for them!

The theme for this packing party is CHRISTMAS!  We'll be packing individual boxes for the sailors.  (These boxes are the size of a DVD box) so we need to get small size items to put in them. Example:  playing cards, stress balls, chap sticks, small size toys.   I will be bringing christmas wrapping paper.   

Let's make sure we put a smile on their faces!!!!

The packing party is on my calendar & I got the day off!  I asked my scout troop tonight & I will ask my coworkers tomorrow.

Good Morning!

Just seen this group!  I am also a Conn. Navy Mom. 

Anyone with a SR graduating 9/27?

Comment by Proud Navy/NYPD Mom (Donna) on September 10, 2013 at 10:54pm

@ Valtameri, I hope you will consider joining MAS.  The holiday project is a great cause too.  But we can always use help throughout the year.

Comment by Proud Navy/NYPD Mom (Donna) on September 10, 2013 at 10:53pm

Donna, you'd figure it out and do just fine I'm sure!  I've just been involved with Molly's since I joined N4Ms about 6 years ago.  Wow, that's a long time!  But I've learned a lot along the way.  And you will too ... just wait and see!  :)
