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.

Sorry, I just now got your friends request. How are You?

Good morning!   The good and (perhaps bad news) is you will need to rely on your sailor for current updates right now.    There are webcams in San Diego, so when the buzz starts on the page to check out the web cams, you can 'watch' her come in.   There are no cameras in  WA. My sailor was on another ship before - and is relocating her family to San Diego from WA with the Reagan.

You might want to set up google and or yahoo alerts for CVN 76 , and USS Ronald Regan to get news articles about her.

This is a roller coaster..
