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.

Hi kdcmac.....thank you for the friend request just to let you know my daughter is no longer at boot she was separated last week for asthma. We both are supporting her division and keeping up with all the progress they have made.She was very sad to leave but is going to try to get a waiver to return in 6 months with a new job.In the 4 weeks she was in the division she grew to love and respect everyone. Asthe first rpoc of the division she kind of feels that she has let them down,but keeping up with accomplishment is helping her to heal. I hope you enjoy PIR and if at all possible let us know how everything went ....Thank you in advance,momajm
