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.

**UPDATE 7/29/2021** You now must be fully vaccinated in order to attend PIR:

FYI, that little beep you hear is for the chat room. To turn it off, go to the lower right corner and click on the green dot. It drove me NUTS, until I figured it out!

Yep, you were write. He is ship 11 as well. I love having this. This is the first time I have felt like I know something... not that knowing your son is with my husband really gives me any information but still! It helps!

Hi mmiles,

Maybe I am wrong on ship. I am trying to decipher from his address. I know it is Division 186. I have not gotten the official letter yet. I am just waiting anxious and hoping he is okay.... it is quite tiring.

Hey!  Thanks so much for taking over Lisa's group.  It is really fun to "run" a group...but challenging!  I can see you are up for the challenge though by how quickly you have "set up" the post board.  Love the pik, countdown clock, and weather widget.  Just add your name/intro to the top so others know that you are in charge (you have powers to delete comments and obviously add things to the page).  You can just add to Lisa's paragraph at the top. You have lots of veterans on here to help you all.  So great to see Lee Ann jumping on to help.  She is a "new" veteran and has "fresh" info!  Jessica and I are oldie goldies...both of our sons PIRed in Jan/Feb 2010. 

Please let us know if you have any questions!  I am on most daytimes...sometimes nights.  Jessica is on early morning and evenings/weekends. She is excellent leading all along. Janlee is great too...and of course Lala!  Betsy jumps in as well when time allows (she is in the middle of a move out of state).  So we are all here to help!
