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.

MEPS Questions

Posted on February 17, 2011 at 10:45pm 1 Comment

Will MEPS disqualify anyone from joining the Navy for Asthma before age 13?  Lots of kids have that at some point when they are young.


My child and friend are not certain.

Just stopping in to say Hi! I know this week has been very emotional for you & it will continue to be an emotional roller coaster. You should be getting his Box probably sometime next week & perhaps the Form letter couple days later (@ least that's how it was for me). I received the 1st letter on Dec. 7th. It was post marked as Dec. 5th so I'm assuming she probably wrote it on Dec. 5th. As to be expected she sounded a little down which was difficult for me to read. Although it made me smile/laugh because she still has her sense of humor. She said the food is good, & had to include the time limits placed on everything...LOL. Its a big difference for one who is use to 20min. showers to have to take one in 5min..LOL. So, this past week was a little easier since I did get the letter. However, you never really relax because you know the house is a little emptier since they left. We just have to pray time goes fast (as others say it does) & that the day of PIR we will be the most Proud of them as we ever were for accomplishing a big step in prepreation for their future. Feel free to message/comment me anytime. TTYL!

I know today is/was a very hard day emotionally for you. Tomorrow will be my 2nd week without my daughter & I'm still a basketcase at times. Just want you to know if you need to talk I'm here. Also if you are on Facebook you can add me as a friend: Brandy Hullinger Johnson.
