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.

Ohhh that call

11:45 Hello this is G____ I arrived safe and am alive. You will receive a box with my personal belongings in approximately 10 days. I will call you in three weeks. I love you Momma! Click

We have all had that call. I was honored with being able to see him raise that right hand and swear to defend the United States of America yesterday.

Here we go again....

My son is set to leave for the Great Lakes this Thursday. He has had to jump through hoops and walk the tight rope to get this far. We are praying that all will go as planned and he will soon be on his life journey. I am off so I will get to see him swear in. I was there with my oldest when he went into the army, and am very excited to see my baby boy when he pledges to the Navy. Keep my husband and me in your thoughts and prayers and will try to update when we know how all is going. My dad…
