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.

It has been a bit since I have been on here. Course I had to set up a new page after they deleted my old one since I hadn't been on while helping with my Dad while he was sick.  I was always on when my daughter was active duty, not as much while she was in the reservesI have been reminded how great our Navy is lately.  My sailor's daughter at the age of 7 has enlisted in the Navy and found a new family.  She was born into the Navy at the Bethesda Naval Hospital where her Mom worked as a Corpsman.  We found out Tabitha has a brain tumor when she was 5.  Recently had surgery to remove what they could.  Now she is getting ready for the next part of her battle chemo will be beginning in the next couple weeks.  She is expected to be in treatment for the next 15 months.  She has already been getting mail from her fellow sailors, veterans, navy moms and loves it.  So I figured why not ask the greatest bunch of mom's if they wouldn't mind sending a little message of encouragement to our Seaman Recruit.  I will try to post a picture of her getting sworn in after I get the picture from her Mom.  So if you or your sailor would like to send her a little message we got her her own PO Box for mail: 

Tabitha Nye  PO Box 27  Perry, Ohio 44081-0027

Thank-you Fair Winds and Following Seas, Kalena

To be honest, I'm not sure I'd know what to write to her. So to you I'd like to say " Thank you for being such an awesome grandmother, fighting for her in any way you know how. It can't be easy having to remain strong for her and your daughter. All 3 of you have my wishes for a safe and speedy recovery for her. ". Let us know how she is doing.

Since it was your daughter that served, try posting this in Mom's of daughters 2. I think that's the title of the group, might be off a word or two

Ah this is very sweet - I will send out a card to her.  What a sweetheart she is - wishing her a speedy recovery - prayers to her and the whole family.  Please keep us updated on how she is doing.

Thank you for giving us an opportunity to bring a little joy to your Tabitha!

We dropped our son off at the recruiter's office in Chicago yesterday for boot camp and are still on our way home, but I'll send her some mail soon. In the meantime, I'll be lifting all of you up in my prayers.
