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 as of 11/10/2022 PIR vaccination is no longer required.

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

Hey! I saw your question about the MeetNGreet. It looks like Lynne has decided to have one for your PIR group at Anastasia's rather than attending the Ramada's event, which is open to all Navy families, not just Navy for Moms. Go to the top of the PIR 11/5 group page in the discussion area and you will find a discussion about the MeetNGreet with all of the info. Let me know if you need help!
