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."

My son will be going to boot camp on April 27, 2017.  After PIR he will be going to A School (?) in South Carolina.  Does anyone know when he would go there?  Is it right after PIR weekend or does he get to go home first ?

If his schedule is like most others going to nuke school (only school the Navy has in SC), he will have Friday afternoon and early evening off, then return to RTC at curfew.  Chances are he will fly out on Saturday morning, although now and then it is Sunday or Monday.

He will have an opportunity to take leave after A school, before he begins Power School.  Coming home directly after boot camp is much more an Army or Marine thing.

I left info on your My Page about the Nuclear Field, including groups and info that will help you to plan PIR weekend.

Sounds like our boys are in the same path. Mine has PIR on June 23. (Ship 14 Div 198) He will go to A school in SC, also for Nuke Program.
Sounds like my son is with the two of yours, same ship and DIV. Going to same school too! So nice to find other mom's on here​. Either of you gotten a personal letter yet??
