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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:



**UPDATE 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

Planning for your future is one sign of a person who is growing up.  The ones who don't want you to do it are either extremely envious of your courage and possibility of a good future, that they want to hold you back or they are fearful that you might out grow them and your friendship would not survive. Do not be afraid of exploring the world out there. Your parents will miss you (that is a given) but they will understand that you willingness to step out into the world is a benefit to your development.  Many young men and women have gone off to military service, a job, for school. Adapting to a new environment is part of the maturing process. For a few, staying within a short distance from home may be all that they ever want; however, with our economy, you should consider yourself lucky to be the chosen few who are offered the opportunity to find a future. Talk about your future together with your girlfriend. Have her come on board and develop some friendships. For both of you, avoid people who are overly dramatic, who don't have goals and can't stand people who do, who are negative and depressing to be around, who secretly wish you would fail because it would make them feel better.  That is all for now.


My husband and I have two sons:

1. 27 years old, a lieutenant in the US Navy. 

2. 23 oil field worker in North Dakota.

We live in CA thousands of miles from either one. I would love to be able to have lunch with one of them at a drop of a hat. But we know they must go out and create a world for themselves. They know their rooms will be here for them whenever they want to visit or stay.
