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

Yes, he is with Brevard.  Currently living in Orlando though.  He knew that your area has problems with the brush fires ! 

My son is already a sailor...I have been helping on the site for a long time with the PIR groups.  Have a good weekend!

I have a firefighter/paramedic nephew who was just hired late fall in your area.  Our family is all down in Miami...

Hope you and your family never need his services  :-)  but if you do, he's pretty good!  :-)
