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.

Hi! I was thinking about you and wanted to touch base. i was at Pensacola this weekend visiting Kenneth and it was good to see him. He finally started class this week - it has taken almost 3 months for him to get "classed up." I keep asking him if he knows your son, and he always asks me your last name. Please refresh my memory! I told him that your son knows who HE is.

I will also admit that I rarely wear scarves and am a little "scarf" challenged. :) Depending on how big it is, any tips you can share about how to wear/arrange it will be appreciated!

Let me know how much fabric you are purchasing. I will try to go to JoAnn's on Friday unless you think it is easier to order online. What cute photos you have on your page!!! Please forgive me, I have seen so many posts, are you from Texas?

Let's figure out something about those scarves. It will be fun!
