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."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Profile Information

A little about me:
My wife and I are in our late 20s, and needed a change in life. She had started her Doctorate in music and wasn't happy where it was going, I was struggling to get a Music Teaching job in the area where she was at school. So, the Navy was the answer. We auditioned, and she got in! Unfortunately, I did not. I still can audition again, and will when she is stationed. She started boot camp 1/11/11 and will have her PIR 3/11/11. She is in Ship 2, Div 917 and is the Yeoman. She is awesome, the best thing in my life without any doubt (though, our cats come a VERY close second place, lol).. We will be spending our next 3-6 months at Norfolk while she goes to A-School. I will be taking Trumpet lessons with a former teacher of trumpet at the Music School. I really hope I pass my next audition, but am positive, that even if only one of us can be a Navy Musician, this was the right choice.
