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:

there is strength in numbers and I am not alone in this journey!
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

I can not believe my baby is all grown up and in the military.. His dad and I are more proud than we ever thought possible!

Thanks!  I just found out that my son's dad found the letter.  I'm good for the gate pass.  I appreciate the offer.

Thanks!  Calls could start around 2pm GL time and go for a while.

Saw your post on the PIR site.  So....if the calls some in on Jan 30th, then they must start on Sunday the 29th.  It is an overnight drill.  I have been told that 055/056 go that night as well.  Did your SR tell you to expect a call on the 30th?  I hadn't received a date for 911 from anyone trying to figure it out.  Keeping a schedule.  Thanks!  Just comment back to me about it.

Hey!  Once you accept FireTeam's friend request, she can get your page all set up for you.  But you will need to add her as an adiminstrator.  She can tell you how to do that.  Thanks for starting the group!

Hello, I just sent you a friend request. I am a veteran mom on the PIR groups. I also help the moms start the PIR groups. Please accept my friend request so that I can get info to you on how to dress up the group. I have step by step instructions and also the "duties" of being a group creator. It's not hard and a lot of fun. Once you have created a group it cannot be is yours. Looking forward to getting to know you1
