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.

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.  1 Timothy 4:12

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. 1 Timothy 6:10

Father, I’m humbled when I consider all that you do through me. Today, help me to rely on you and stretch beyond my own capabilities.  You, Father provide all my needs and bless me with everything I have. Protect me from the lure of more money. Help me always put You, Family and Neighbor above all else.  Worldly goods mean nothing, It's Heaven I'm striving for. Thank you for Your Son and the Holy Spirit, open our hearts to hear and follow. Amen

“Everything you do or say, then, should be done in the name of the Lord Jesus, as you give thanks through him to God the Father” Colossians 3:17

“The LORD’s kindness never fails! If he had not been merciful, we would have been destroyed. The LORD can always be trusted to show mercy each morning. Deep in my heart I say, ‘The LORD is all I need; I can depend on him!” Lamentations 3:22-24 

Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure . . .  Philippians 2:14–15

Lord, I offer you my heart, hands, and resources. I want whatever I do to be a sacrificial gift of service, not an opportunity to boost my ego or show off my abilities.  But all Glory and Praise be yours!

Comment by Blondie on July 8, 2019 at 10:50am

By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also.  1 Corinthians 6:14

“Be very careful how you live. Do not live like those who are not wise. Live wisely. I mean that you should use every chance you have for doing good, because these are evil times. So do not be foolish with your lives. But learn what the Lord wants you to do”  Ephesians 5:15-17 

Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
Colossians 4:6

Jesus, thank you for rising from the dead and bringing abundant life. I want to trust you fully, knowing that what I do is meaningful for your kingdom.   I want to be your light, your hands, your salt in the world. May I add your holy flavor to everything I do and say today.  Holy Spirit live in me and guide me.

Joe's granddad passed away on my daughter's 30th birthday, Joe arrived safely home this morning, reports in tomorrow and leaves early Sunday morning. Not enuff time with Wife and Tahlia.  :(   Today is haircut, uniform inspection.....Uggg!  If Baby M wasn't so close we'd have been out there.  Baby M is making flutters and daughter is dilated 1.5 centimeters.  Was hoping for a baby yesterday but maybe this weekend??!!!

Hope you all had a Fun and Sunny 4th.   Hugs

Thank you Bearcat.  God is my Strength.

[Jesus said,] “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth . . . But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven . . .”
Matthew 6:19–20

. . . whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent and praiseworthy—think about such things.  Philippians 4:8

Father, Thank you for your word with all it's reminders and guidance.  Help keep me positive and looking forward and upward!

Prayers for you Blondie. Hang in there!

"...The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable, He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power....Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.  Isaiah 41: 27 - 31

Sorry, I'm all over the place, lots going on in my family life.  Pregnant daughter having eye problems. Thank You God it was a scratched cornea and not something worse (that is bad enuff)  SIL's grandad was taking off life support, Joe drove 15 hours straight to get there in time. (having to go thro Navy red tape...) Gran Dad still holding on. Daughter stayed at home with Tahlia because of her Health problems.  Not sure when Joe will be back home but he leaves with the Navy next weekend for 3 weeks!  BIL had a artery blockage in his neck, had surgery and then had a heart surgery, He got to come home yesterday! Like I said it's Crazy here!

But singing God's Praises, Youngest Daughter (ex-sailor after 10 years) is alive to celebrate her 30th Birthday today.  God is GOOD

[Jesus said,] “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.”  John 14:1

Lord, I hand over all my worries to you today. You are in control and will continue to protect me, provide for me, and guide me.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.  Psalm 150:6

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us” Hebrews 12:1  

Job says, “He sees everything I do and every step I take” (Job 31:4 ). And Jesus tells us, “Even every hair on your head has been counted” (Luke 12:7 ). God knows every detail of your life. He watches every breath you take. There are no secrets between you and him.

“I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you.”
Isaiah 44:22

For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.  Ephesians 2:18

Father, I’m so glad you’re there for me all the time.
