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."

Thank you

You are very welcome.

Fayehorne your son should be working out also his Recruiter knows what he will be tested on.

The Navy Physical Readiness Test consists of push-ups, curl-ups (sit-ups), and either running or swimming. In basic training, swimming is not an option. All boot camp recruits are measured by performing push-ups, curl-ups (sit-ups) and running 1 1/2 miles.

Navy Physical Readiness Test Breakdown

1.5-Mile Run

Event consists of running 1.5 miles as quickly as possible. Any combination of running or walking is allowed to complete event.


Your score is based on how many curl-ups you can do correctly in two minutes. Resting is permitted.


Your score is determined by how may push-ups you can complete in two minutes. Resting is permitted, but only in the up position.

Hope this helps

Fayemore swimming is one of the test also so he needs to know to swim. I was told not all Recruiters help them in MEPS but all the meetings he goes to should be going over all of this with them. what to be expecting anyways. hope this helps.
