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.

Profile Information

A little about me:
My name is Birdie and I have a son that is currently on the USS Abraham Lincoln.
He is an airman with VRC-30 Providers, Det 2.
I can't even express how proud my husband and I are of him. Joining the Navy was one of the best things he's ever done. Aside from marrying the most wonderful girl, of course. He and his bride of 2 1/2 years are expecting their first baby in April, 2011. We're all hoping he'll make it home for the birth.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
They can teach my son things that I tried for 18 years. Who knew he could actually make his bed? And iron? And clean up?
Oh, how I love the Navy!
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

Birdie, l4flowers has a son on the Lincoln. She and her husband went on the Tiger Cruise. They live in Campbell (Santa Clara County) now but moving over to the coast. I think she is on the Lincoln group. She is on the San Fran group - that I know.
