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. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass is no longer needed to drive on to base for parking.

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

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.

He has big hopes and dreams for the future and wants to someday work in our Nation's Capitol in the field he has chosen to pursue.

My daily prayer for him....

Heavenly Father I placed my son in your hands. I pray he seeks to follow his dreams and that he ask you daily to go  in front of him to make his path straight.  I pray that he will ask you to walk beside him each step for Your protection against all evil. I pray that as his mother you give me the courage to accept whatever Your will may be for his life. He is yours Heavenly Father so mold him into the soldier he wants to be and it will be for Your glory. We praise you Father for all your many blessings. Amen!

I have done all that I can for my baby boy, now the rest of his story will be up to him to write.

So very true... I hate the moments when I am overwhelmed and the tears just flow. I can’t seem to control it. It’s usually a little thing and bam!
