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.

Jobs on Base?

Posted on May 25, 2010 at 11:58am 4 Comments

If I go to school and get my degree, to be a Medical Assistant, can I still work on Base? or is there any way I can work on base, and that way if my man and I end up moving in a year or two, I'll still be able to have a job no matter where we go?

How does that work out? If anyone has had to move around, a lot for their loved one, can you help me out with this ? I'm just curious as to whether I can have a stable career, or if it's going to be hard for me to find a job anywhere I go, IF… Continue
