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.

Just 5 more wake ups, just 5 more sleepy " I'm up Momma." and just 5 more wake ups and my next will be empty. He is so bored and antsy pantsy right now, he is cramming in all the face time and game time he can with his buddies. My Dad is 85 and is terminally ill with cancer and I know in my heart that my son has seen his Paw for the last time and I get all choked up when I talk to daddy on the phone right now as he is very close to both my boys.   My sister calls me about three times a day to see if I am okay, and sends me funny memes on facebook daily. Her grandsons are so excited as they love and look up to my soon to be Sailor. My boss is going to Germany for 2 weeks so starting Saturday I work the next 17 business days having only Sundays off. That will help my first two weeks of Basic go by faster. I think what I am getting at is that regardless of what happens in any given space of time, the world will keep spinning and things will come to pass as they should. All I have ever wanted for my boys, is that they be happy and not be afraid to reach for their dreams. The only advice I gave was that in everything they do, to always do their best, that if you always do your best you are already a winner. The hours are flying by and I want them to slow down(maybe). So many emotions going on and I am trying to be strong. They never told us the hardest part of being a mom was the letting go when this day comes. Y'all be blessed and if you are on you tube look up Mark Harris singing Find Your Wings (listen to it often).
